Actress Malin Akerman's party playlist Add to ...

Swedish-born, Toronto-raised actress Malin Akerman's Hollywood career is taking off with the news that she is set to replace Lindsay Lohan in the starring role in a movie about the life of 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace.

Akerman was recruited for the part of the late Deep Throat star Lovelace in the film, Inferno, which is due for release next year, after bad-girl actress Lohan's brushes with the law and rehab saw her dropped by the producers.

Recent breakthrough roles for Akerman have seen her starring as Silk Spectre in the comic book adaptation Watchmen and playing opposite Ben Stiller in the Farrelly Brothers' The Heartbreak Kid.

Akerman, who moved to Southern Ontario from Sweden at the age of two, got her first break at the age of 17, when she won the Ford Supermodel of Canada search.

Here, she reveals her perfect playlist of music that sets the right mood when she entertains at home in Los Angeles.

Bebel Gilberto - Tanto Tempo The perfect album to listen to as your guests arrive and you are serving drinks.

Dean Martin - Forever Cool I love old classics… they always feel very festive… puts me in the holiday mood.

Broken Bells - Broken Bells [A recent collaboration between the Shins' David Mercer and artist-producer Danger Mouse] It's just a great album!

Isak Strand & the Resin Band - You and me and Yes you Two An album to start to get your guests grooving.

Jamiroquai - High times singles 1992-2006 Funk is always a good genre to get people moving to. You can't help but dance… and I always like to end my get-togethers with a little dance party!

Frank Sinatra - Greatest Hits Needs no explanation.
