I was going to lol first but lindsay is actually a good actress – she’s just all kinds of messed up. Howeeeeever, really can’t picture her as Elizabeth Taylor! They’d really have to sell this one.

Lilo is too famous for basic cable…she belongs on the big screen !!!!

# 4

She is actually a talented actress and many people forgot about that
She has a kind of innocence and sweetness, and the child in herself which is also characterized Taylor

# 5

THANK YOU I NEEDED THIS LAUGH!!!!

# 6

she’s really not that talented of an actress.. she was talented a s a child, sure.. once she got older name 1 good movie she was in beside Mean girls? Don’t worry i’ll wait… And all the memorable moments from Mean Girls were from all the other actors..

to Nice Try Lohan

Sorry to have to tell you this but Deadline is known here in LA to be credible. more often than not, the information posted on their website turns out to be true. but not to worry, Lindsay is only in talks which is way different than actually being offered the role.

She’s talented (or she used to be, who knows about now?) but she’s trash. So my thoughts on Lindsay playing Taylor? F NO

# 9

she is not the beauty taylor was………looks NOTHING like her. She might as well be playing Oprah Winfrey.

Perhaps she is in talks with her mother or self–she does have delusions regarding her worth as an actress. Whether any studio would consider hiring/insuring her for any role is questionable. She’s a mess who showed promise as a child but hasn’t produced anything but headlines or mugshots as an adult. It’s ridiculous and an insult to Ms Taylor.

It’s not April fool’s day ok? When was she talented? Mean girls could have been played by a mentally handicapped girl and still have fans. Still we will laugh at that crap of Elisabeth Taylor movie. So disrespectful towards such a good and talented actress.

this is a joke right?? why not get charlie sheen to play burton.or one of the teen moms girls to co star while their at it.lifetime went from tv for women to tv for junkies.

NO! NO!

I think that she’s an excellent choice. I love her acting and I think that as she matures then she will stop with the foolery. We’ve all been through that and she will get through it too.

Yet she’ll find a way to f it up and get replaced before the film starts shooting

@ela: Are you kilding me?? You mean she’s still a teenager?? lol! She’s a sl*t who loves being like that and promised to be herself after those crappy movies who made her famous.

Elizabeth Tayloer is rolling in her grave right now at the though of Lohan playing her..Ugh this makes me upset.

Delusion at it’s best (or worst).

alrighty then @ 01/10/2012 at 4:39 am

while they’re considering this, why not just dig elizabeth taylor’s corpse up and pee on it? even that won’t be as insulting as having lindsay play her.

no not her, big mistake.

She may have a chaotic life and stuffs, I agree with that, but she is a good actress. It’s even worth by the way, such a talented actress ruined by her private life… But anyway, she’s talented, she was really good for example in Machete. Let her show what she got, and forget about her private life and public appearances, even if it’s difficult !

jockeyboy @ 01/10/2012 at 5:34 am

@Sabrina: I agree. I think she should have got at least an Oscar nomination for Machete. Like Meryl Strip for playing Margaret Tatcher.

@jockeyboy: I don’t know why people dishes on your comment. I think it was quite good.

@jockeyboy:

OK, you need to get off whatever medication you’re taking RIGHT NOW!
