Lindsay Lohan famously posed as Elizabeth Taylor in Interview magazine in 2006. Now she's all dressed up and ready to take on the role of a lifetime ... on Lifetime.
TMZ, which obtained the first of photo of LiLo in full wardrobe, reveals that she's already gotten her hair and cut and dyed to look just like Taylor's classic 'do.
The photo below is all Lindsay - no wig - and the resemblance is uncanny:
In addition to physical similarities, sources say LiLo's troubled history, and ability to match Taylor's vulnerability and beauty, helped win her the role in the Lifetime film.
Shooting on the movie, called Liz & Dick and chronicling her turbulent marriage, starts this week with Grant Bowler from True Blood co-starring as Richard Burton.
According to the producer, Larry Thompson, there'll be many a steamy scene between the couple, whose 18-year age difference mirrors that of Liz and Dick.
