Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale And Two More Join Lovelace

The cast of the upcoming film Lovelace already shows promise, with Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard set to star. And now, a week from when the movie is set to begin filming in Los Angeles, a few more have boarded the project, among which is Hank Azaria.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace will have Seyfried playing Linda Lovelace, star of a number of adult films, among them was the well known 1972 adult film Deep Throat. Sarsgaard is set to play her husband Chuck Trayner. Earlier this month, we shared the news that Juno Temple and Wes Bentley were also set to join the cast. The latest bit of news adds four more to the list. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hank Azaria (The Simpsons, Night at the Museum), Chris Noth (Sex and the City), Bobby Cannavale (Win Win) and Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day) have joined the cast.

Azaria is set to play Deep Throat director Jerry Damiano. Meanwhile, Cannavale and Noth are playing the movie’s financiers Butchie Peraino and Anthony Romano. Finally, Patrick is playing Lovelace’s father John. These are some pretty great cast additions. It’ll be especially interesting to see how Azaria portrays a porn director. Will the role lean more toward funny, or should we expect something more along the lines of what we saw from Burt Reynolds when he played Jack Horner in Boogie Nights? Either way, the Azaria addition is great news, as is word that Noth, Cannavale and Patrick have boarded the project.

The film is scheduled to begin shooting a week from today (next Tuesday).
