Gloria SteinemGloria Steinem, Demi Moore will soon be trying on aviator sunglasses. The “Margin Call” actress has been tapped to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the upcoming movie “Lovelace.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Moore has joined the cast of the Linda Lovelace biopic, which is currently filming in Los Angeles. In the based-on-a-true-story movie, Amanda Seyfried plays the “Deep Throat” p*rn star who later denounced her participation in the film, claiming that her then-husband Chuck Traynor forced her to do it at gunpoint. Traynor will be played in the film by Peter Sarsgaard.

The details of Moore’s role in “Lovelace” are scant, but Steinem was a major critic of the p*rnography industry in 1972, when “Deep Throat” was released. In 1980, Steinem’s Ms. magazine ran a story called “Linda Lovelace’s Ordeal” about the abuse Lovelace claimed to have received at the hands of ex-husband Traynor.

Seyfried recently spoke out about her upcoming role.

“It’s going to be really hard and kind of terrifying at the same time,” Seyfried told “I do have some liberties there but I am playing someone that existed in history and had quite an established reputation for something very extreme.”

Moore, Seyfried and Sarsgaard will be joined in the cast by Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth and Sharon Stone. James Franco is currently in talks to play Hugh Hefner in a cameo.
