Guys, there is an evil, evil part within me that actually rejoices when I reread this line. “Megan Fox might steal Lindsay Lohan’s Liz Taylor Role”? Come on. Tell me that’s not almost comedic gold. Coming from where Lindsay Lohan used to be and comparing it to what success Megan’s had to date? OMG. I’m dying here. From E!:
It appears Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only starlet in talks to play Elizabeth Taylor.
Although the Mean Girls star confirmed she is still up for the role in the buzz-worthy biopic to E! News Sunday night at the Weinstein Company Golden Globes after party, we’ve learned Lohan has some competition by way of Megan Fox.
“I’ve been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox,” Larry Thompson, the executive producer of Lifetime’s Liz and Dick, told E! News exclusively.
Thompson declined to elaborate further on specifics of the negotiations, but added that being in talks with more than one actress is not meant as an affront to the talent involved, but rather is simply de rigueur for projects of this nature.
“It’s a very serious selection,” Thompson continued. “It’s like casting for Hollywood royalty.”
And speaking of serious, a source tells E! News that while Lohan is still one of the frontrunners for the role, her probation status is “a complication.”
In case you weren’t aware, Lindsay was “pretty much” set to be cast as Liz Taylor in a … ahem, Lifetime movie biopic of the late actress. You heard that right – Lifetime.
Anyway, back to Megs and Linds. Nuts, right? This business is straight outta Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, but the two ladies involved are well beyond high school age. But hey. Maybe it’s all supposed to happen this way. Maybe some things just aren’t meant to be. You know, things like self-replication or time travel to dimensions in other galaxies. Or, duh, better example!: Like a Lindsay Lohan film resurrection. I honestly think it’s safe to say that that particular ship has sailed, powered by the main driving force of burning meth and methane gas via Red Bull and vodka flatulence.
Sources say that a decision’s going to made by early next week. Won’t you be waiting with bated breath ’til then? Jeez, I know I will; can you just imagine how Lindsay’s going to be coping over the next few days? And why do I feel like it’s going to go down like it did in Mommie Dearest, where Faye Dunaway screams “BOX OFFICE POISON?!” and then goes and hacks down half of her rose garden with scary pruning shears in outrageous anger?
