Sarah Jessica Parker To Play Gloria Steinem

Not long after we heard that Demi Moore had dropped out of the role as Gloria Steinem in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, word came that Sarah Jessica Parker would be replacing her.

It is unfortunate that Moore’s personal situation is difficult right now, but the Shmooze bets that SJP will make an even better feminist icon. After all, didn’t she did play the unmistakably liberated Carrie Bradshaw for years on “Sex in the City”? The series wasn’t quite “Deep Throat,” if you know what we mean, but we are sure Parker will be able to handle playing her part in the porn star’s life story.

Besides, this might be a case of casting to type. Sure, both Demi and Parker sport that Steinem- like middle-parted long hair look, but only the latter is, like Steinem, actually Jewish. (Being a Kabbalah Center devotee is not quite the same thing).
