Those two lookers, with Rachel McAdams and Heather Graham, represent Jenna Jameson's wish list to portray the on-camera undulator in a film based on her autobiography How to Make Love Like a Porn Star. "This is a role that every girl in Hollywood is going to want to play," Jameson tells the Adult Video News website (which I, um, found under my dad's bed). "It's dramatic and comedic....
