Scarlett Johansson As Jenna Jameson?

Newswire services are buzzing with a bit of gossip from FHM magazine. Apparently, a biopic of adult movie star Jenna Jameson is on the cards and... er... wow... Scarlett Johansson is being lined up to take on the role. This story is just made to go over big online, isn't it?

Jameson is quoted as saying "We're looking hopefully at Scarlett Johansson. She's my choice. I think she's beautiful" - now, how many young men could have been quoted as saying just the same thing? Some reports have it that Johansson's people have been approached, others simply that Jameson is getting ready to pursue her.

Of course, Scarlett recently claimed "I'm not opposed to doing nudity - it would just have to be the right project." Is this the right project?

Sound a little like Jameson is trying to get some free hype out of Scarlett's name - and, yep, it's working - which is not quite what porn pundits were projecting a few years back. I thought by now that Hollywood was supposed to be subsumed into the adult entertainment industry entirely, or, at least, that actors were going to stop faking it. Despite the best efforts of Kerry Fox, Chloe Sevigny, Vincent Gallo, Michael Winterbottom et al, that doesn't seem to be on the cards just yet.

Thank the lord.
