Remember last month when we heard that Lindsay Lohan was up for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming made-for-TV movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story? Yeah, well, apparently she won the role … on the condition that she can stay out of trouble and can stay in compliance with her court-ordered probation. As you may recall, both Lindsay and Megan Fox were being considered for the role of Taylor but, it would seem that, producers really want Lindsay for the role.
Lindsay Lohan has more than just her upcoming hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” to celebrate – she’s scored the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime TV movie, “Liz and Dick,” a source tells Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush. But, there is one legal-related caveat: Lindsay needs to stay on the right side of court. According to the source, if Lohan continues to stick to the judge’s orders, as she has been doing, she will be playing the “Cleopatra” beauty in the Lifetime made-for-TV film about the late actress. The project, helmed by producer Larry Thompson, has been in development since May 2011 … [Lindsay] will host “Saturday Night Live” on March 3. Jack White will be the musical guest. Lohan is due back in court on February 22.
HMMM. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I really want to believe that there is a chance that Lindsay Lohan can revive her career. On the other hand, I’m not sure that she is really right to play Elizabeth Taylor in the first biopic film to be released since her death. It was previously reported that the title of this made-for-TV movie would be Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story … but this new report says the film will be titled Liz & Dick. Honestly, this newer title sounds more like a film that Lindsay Lohan would star in, doesn’t it?
HMMMM. Yeah, not sure how to feel about this. What do y’all think?
