There has been so much talk about Lindsay Lohan signing on to star as the illustrious Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime’s Original Movie, Liz & Dick that I wasn’t sure what to expect. Above are the official images released by the network showing Ms. Lohan and co-star Grant Bowler in full costume and I must admit, Lindsay does look the role. But will she do a good job playing her?
Here are details about the movie:
For nearly a quarter of a century, Taylor and Burton were Hollywood royalty and their fiery romance — often called “the marriage of the century” — was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day. Swarmed by paparazzi, Taylor and Burton’s love affair was played out entirely in front of the global press from the time they met on the set of the major motion picture Cleopatra, left their respective spouses, married and divorced, only to remarry and divorce once again. Despite their roller coaster romance for the public eye to see, Taylor and Burton shared an undeniable love greater than most people could have ever dreamed.
I’m not here to judge anyone based on their past personal problems because I’m not perfect but her most recent acting roles left a lot to be desired. Could it help her that she has gone through rehab and is trying to turn over a new leaf?
Maybe, but she sure does have some pretty big shoes to fill.
What do you guys think?
