    As you may have heard, Lindsay Lohan is no longer doing porn.

    But not to worry, because Malin Akerman is filling her Deep Throat shoes. The Watchmen bombshell is set to star in Inferno, a film about '70s porn star Linda Lovelace. LiLo was originally supposed to play Lovelace, but was ousted in November.

    Now, for the first time since being cast, Akerman is talking about the racy role...

    "I'm just trying to do all my research and really get the character right," Akerman told reporters at the People's Choice Awards. "I'm reading her book and I'm reading any kind of information that I can get my hands on." Lovelace died in 2002 at age 53 from injuries she suffered in a car accident.

    Has she watched any of Lovelace's adult fare?

    "Not yet," the 32-year-old laughed when asked if she's ever seen one of Lovelace's adult films.

    So just how raunchy will Akerman get in the flick? "You'll just have to wait and see," she teased with a smile.

    In other (sorta) naked news, Jerry O'Connell told us he'd love to be it the sequel to his summer horror flick Piranha 3D. As regular readers of this column know, O'Connell's character lost his manhood when it was bitten off by the killer fish. "What's next?" O'Connell said. "Nipples? That's not much of a risk though. You're supposed to elevate. What's the elevation? My anus? [But] how do you bite off an anus? I just don't know."
