When I first heard that Lindsay Lohan is in talked to play Elizabeth Taylor for a Lifetime movie I thought ‘are you kidding me?’. Then I saw the photo above of her as Elizabeth Taylor and thought she might be able to pull it off. At least she looks more like Taylor than Michelle Williams looks like Marilyn Monroe.
The 25-year-old Lohan is in talked to play Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic ‘Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story’. The film is pretty obviously about the romance between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton who were married twice. Their first marriage was 1964 to 1974 and their second from 1975 to 1976. They were also often co-stars in movies. Someone familiar with the project says that she’s in early negotiations for the role.
Lohan recently did a Marilyn Monroe inspired photo shoot for Playboy’s January/February 2012 issue.
