So much for Lindsay Lohan’s comeback. After much chatter that her forthcoming role as a 1970s porn star would prove her acting chops, she’s been booted off the film because of a prolonged stay in rehab. Her replacement: Ontario’s very own Malin Akerman. Akerman, who was in Toronto during TIFF to promote The Bang Bang Club with co-star Ryan Phillippe, was born in Sweden but grew up in Southern Ontario and attended York University. In Matthew Wilder’s Inferno, she’ll play Linda Lovelace (of Deep Throat infamy), who claimed her husband forced her into pornography.
