From Radar Online:
Lindsay Lohan is extremely unhappy with the casting choices of the male actors who have auditioned for the role of Richard Burton in the Elizabeth Taylor Lifetime biopic, and filming is scheduled to begin in just a few weeks, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Choices to play the role of Richard Burton have come down to Gossip Girl star Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire, and CSI hunk Craig Robert Young, but after watching the audition tapes last weekend, “Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there,” a production insider tells RadarOnline.com. “Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don’t need to get Lindsay’s approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy.”
“They are already in pre-production and it’s very hard to conduct any rehearsals without the pivotal role of Richard Burton,” the source says. “There is also cause for concern because Lindsay partied all night last week with Paris Hilton, Barron Hilton and Brandon Davis. All three, including Lindsay, have been arrested for DUI and/or drug charges previously. Lindsay shouldn’t be out partying all night long, no good can come of that.”
Oh. My God. Am I one of the only ones in the world who knows that THIS MOVIE. IS A DAMN. LIFETIME MOVIE? Have people lost their f-cking minds and went and forgot that glaringly obvious but apparently elusive little fact? Who does Lindsay expect these people are going to be hunting down, Johnny Depp? Brad Pitt? George Clooney? Come on! Reality check, Lindsay! The only reason you have this part is because Megan Fox is too busy being all pregnant and stuff and wouldn’t look the part of Liz by the time this movie gets off the ground and crawling.
Can we just get this shitshow over with already? I’m dying—DYING!—to see this performance and mock it washed-up junkie frame by washed-up junkie frame.
