Amanda Seyfried's next big role after her emotional turn in Tom Hooper's 'Les Miserables' is that of porn-star Linda Lovelace.

In the biopic, Seyfried stars as Linda Boreman, who found success as an adult film star named Lovelace in 1972 film 'Deep Throat'. The flick makes its debut at the Sundance Film Festival this week.

In the first clip from the film (above), Seyfried is seen auditioning for Larry Marchiaba (Wes Bentley), who went on to marry Boreman in 1974.

'Lovelace' also stars Sharon Stone, Peter Sarsgaard, Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple, Chris Noth and James Franco.

As her alter-ego Lovelace, Boreman's films were part of the mainstreaming of X-rated films before she renounced that life and became an anti-porn crusader under her own name.

Last week, Sarah Jessica Parker, who was portraying feminist activist Gloria Steinem, had her scenes cut from the film because the directors decided to end 'Lovelace' before Boreman met Steinem.
