Lindsay Lohan Scores Elizabeth Taylor Biopic Role

by at . Comments

The skeptics who say Lindsay Lohan shouldn't host SNL because she does nothing other than get into legal trouble have a little less ammunition today.

The actress is studying hard for the movie role she so coveted - and just got - doing all that she can to accurately portray a young Elizabeth Taylor.

Lindsay just inked a deal with Lifetime to play Liz in the network's biopic called Liz and Dick. Production on L & D is scheduled to kick off late March.

Conveniently, right after Lindsay's probation is over and done with.

Lindsay is telling friends she's taking her gig, which she lobbied hard for, very seriously and is "obsessing over getting the part right" for the film.

The 25-year-old has been doing nothing but watching old Taylor movies to help her recreate the Hollywood icon's posture, speech, and every detail.

Lohan has also been reading old Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011) interviews online and reading a bunch of biographies ... dedication to the craft, people!

She even posed with a Taylor t-shirt in those LOVE magazine pics.

Lifetime is taking a hard stance with Lindsay too, demanding she complete ALL probation requirements before filming. She's on track to ... for now.

Oh boy...Lohan doesn't even resemble Liz Taylor in any remote way. Taylor was an icon. I have a feeling she would not be real happy about the producers pick for her film. I'll record it to fast forward most of the movie. Some one like Emily Blunt (a very good actress) should have gotten this part.

Wow the fact that she begged to do a Lifetime movie is just goes to show how far she has fallen. Not to bash Lifetime but using one of their made for tv movies as a big comeback is kinda pitiful.
