Larry Rudolph, crisis manager-in-chief of the great Britney Spears, is now at the helm of resurrecting the career of another train wreck: Lindsay Lohan.
The man behind Britney's 2008-09 comeback is now taking on re-launching the career of Lohan, who has famously done time in jail and rehab this summer.
“She’s very motivated, and she’s in a good place now,” Rudolph said on the red carpet of the 2010 MTV VMAs. “I really think that it’s going to work.”
Can Larry Rudolph work his magic with Lindsay Lohan?
Lohan’s first step back was playing the role of disciplinarian to VMA host Chelsea Handler in the show's opening sketch, and she is already in talks to host SNL.
Rudolph says, presumably seriously, that firecrotch is so awesome, you can only keep her down for so long before this once-in-a-generation talent shines:
“When you’ve got that much talent - you can never count somebody out. She’s incredibly smart, she’s incredibly talented. She has everything she needs.”
Well, save for prolonged sobriety. Can she stay clean?
