The big screen look into the troubled life of 70’s porn superstar Linda Lovelace now has a number of venerable character actors onboard.

Robert Patrick, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale and Chris Noth have joined the production, which stars Amanda Seyfried in the lead role and Peter Sarsgaard as her violent, manipulative husband. Like Walk the Line, Patrick is performing daddy duties again and has been cast as Lovelace’s estranged father, while ‘Simpsons’ voice veteran Azaria will play the director of the porn flick in which she made her name, Deep Throat.

Howl co-directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman have assembled an interesting cast so far. Recent names to sign up were Wes Bentley, Sharon Stone and the up-and –coming Juno Temple.
