Olivia Wilde considering Linda Lovelace role

Los Angeles: `Tron: Legacy` star Olivia Wilde says she is considering the role of Linda Lovelace in the porn actress` upcoming biopic `Lovelace`.

The 27-year-old beauty, who has shown some skin in her recent release `Cowboys and Aliens`, says she is yet to confirm if she would play the 1972 hardcore porn film `Deep Throat` star`s character, reported AceShowbiz.

"I`m being very careful about my next project since I`m now in a position where I can be really picky - thank God, finally," she said.

Wilde however has hinted at being interested in the role, adding, "It would be a tremendous honour. It`s such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman - with where she came from to `Deep Throat` to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It`s really fascinating."

`Lovelace` was previously reported to cast James Franco as pornographer Chuck Traynor. Beside this project, there is another Linda Lovelace biopic coming from Matthew Wilder.

Developed under the title `Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story`, it previously had troubled star Lindsay Lohan on the lead role before `Couple`s Retreat` star Malin Akerman is tapped to replace her.
