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.

  • What an delusional fool. She’s lucky if they find a D list actor that will take the part for publicity reasons. Someone tell her you don’t get an Oscar for Lifetime movies and come back to earth.

  • lindsay looks great in this pic! im not sure how she got worst dressed for this. people were saying her eyebrows were to dark, but it all works. im not familiar with any of the actors mentioned in the above article. but alot of casting these days suck. like i watch some movies and i think he/she is wrong for that role and it totally ruins the film and turns it into a comedic film. granted a lot of people dont yet like her or maybe never will, but she is a smart actress when on the ball and in this case may know what she is talking about. the whole A-lister thing i dont buy.. like why are we giving this inside source so much cred. when hes the one acting unprofessional and flapping his jaw?

  • i just finished reading Elizabeth Taylor’s biography – everything about this project is so wrong it’s upsetting
