Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor: Uncanny!

by at . Comments

Lindsay Lohan has just signed on to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie, much to the chagrin of Rosie O'Donnell. The actress is thrilled about the opportunity.

In fact, she's felt a kinship with the late Hollywood legend before.

In 2006, at age 19, Lindsay posed as Taylor, who passed away in 2011, for Interview magazine in photos taken by Karl Lagerfeld – including a cover shot.

Take a look at the striking resemblance below ...

The shots are powerful, with Lohan managing to capture much of Taylor's vulnerability and beauty, traits that helped win her the role in the Lifetime film.

Of course, this was before Lindsay Lohan's plastic surgery and/or hard-partying ways altered her appearance drastically. But that's neither here nor there.

It has not been revealed who will star opposite Lohan as Richard Burton in Liz & Dick, but the 25-year-old actress is heavily insured and raring to go.

This will not work. I can't see it as a box office hit.

I agree with everybody else: Lilo could NEVER be in the same realm of Liz. Perhaps she feels a kindred soul due to them both having addictions and a roller-coaster life. Remember, the Hollywood Machine of the 1920's thru the 1960's was formidable......they created new personas and hid the real person. Either way, Lilo doesn't look like beautiful Liz, and that awful voice is going to be unpleasant.

Taylor once climbed into the seat of a wrecked car of her friend Montgomery Clift when he was in a terrible car crash and his face was hanging off his skull and held him in her arms till the ambulance arrived. Don't ever compare Lohan to Taylor in any way, looks or personality. All Lohan would do is run from the problem and blame someone else. I agree with Holly about her voice, how are they going to change that gruff voice into anything close to Taylor's voice. It's getting very irritating to listen to her voice.

She looks like someone made up as Elizabeth Taylor for a Halloween party ...I wish Lohan well...but she was a bad choice for this role...they might as well cast "The Situation" as Richard Burton...now here's an idea...how bout recasting Snooki as ET? She kinda looks like ET in a fun house mirror kind of way...now that"s uncanny..LoL

Can someone explain how the magic of moviemaking will transform froggy's voice to anything remotely close to a soft english accent?

Lohan doesn't look like Elizabeth Taylor. Alison Brie would be much better.
