    Malin Akerman is pumped about tackling her upcoming turn as porn star Linda Lovelace in Inferno...a role that was originally intended for one Lindsay Lohan, who got dropped due to insurance issues.

    "I'm really excited to the do the film," Malin told me last night at the Tribeca Film Fest, where The Bang Bang Club (another one of her films) was premiering. "I think it's gonna be an amazing journey."

    So how exactly has Malin been preparing to play the Deep Throat actress?

    "I've been studying a lot about battered women and we all have that big question mark as to why they stay in the relationship and why they don't leave and it's so complex," Malin, who's also rocking red hair these days, explained. "I've been reading a lot on the internet...Google is a fantastic thing."

    Indeed.

    Malin was joined last night by Bang Bang costars Ryan Phillippe and Taylor Kitcsh. The movie, about a quartet of photographers covering the final days of Apartheid in war-torn South Africa, seems particuarly relevant in light of this week's death of Restrepo director Tim Hetherington and a fellow war photographer in Libya. The two were acknowledged in the film's introduction.

    The entire cast attended the afterparty at La Bottega sponsored by Cinema Society following the premiere, and although there was food at the soiree, Ryan apparently couldn't wait until then to eat.

    Before the movie began, he was spotted eating an ice cream bar from the theater's concession stand.
