Not unless his career is over.

# 2

He doesn’t look like Richard Burton at all. I agree, only if his career is totally dead like Lohan’s, should he do this movie.

# 3

It would be career suicide for sure.

# 4

He’s a gross hot mess.

Should Gerard Butler Co-Star with Lindsay Lohan in ‘Liz & ****’? No.
Now if they want to get Furious Love made? Yes. But he’d have to beat Rusty in screen tests.

# 7

Maybe she had a crush on him ,or she wanted him to joint the z-list with her

he used to be sooo hot.

can´t believe what he has become–

he doesn´t make good quality movies–his private life is a shame and on top of that he looks like a mess.

if he does that movie–it would be def career suicide

I love his shirt! I just bought one like it. Gerry, you need to pull yourself together, for real!

gerry dont need l-lo only if he wants to kill his career, back off l-lo

Uh, isn’t this a made-for-TV movie or something?

I can understand why she’d think of him. I would not understand why he would ever consider it.

Not only does she have a crush on him, I think I read somewhere that he’s “been there.”

But that doesn’t mean he’d be seen in public with her, much less on a movie screen.

There are lots of actors desperate for work, who are unknowns and will probably stay unknown. That’s who they should get.

Are those pants permanent?

For a film version with Rachel Weisz as Liz Taylor maybe. Not for this Lifetime mess.

mustang sally @ 05/02/2012 at 1:00 pm

While I can certainly see him in the role of Richard Burton I’m just not sure about this particular TV movie, network, or co-star at this point in his career. I agree with a better option being a big-screen movie based on the book Furious Love . . . if even an option. But in reality how can you ever recreate the most iconic love story without the original players?

GerrysMysteryWoman @ 05/02/2012 at 1:02 pm

It’s a hot topic. She’s an attention-seeker and has been mentioned by way of tabloid bits seen listening Gerry at a party just a bit before she went in for her final court date. My guess is, if he said anything in those few seconds or minutes, it was something along the lines, “Good luck, stay clean and sober and focus on reestablishing your career.” Then split to get away from her.
It’s just to create a buzz. She can’t act. It’s a made for TV thing anyways. The title shows you how unimaginative the team is!
What’s troubling (to me) is it’s a total disrespectful dishonor and disservice to the intelligent, gifted, beautiful enigmatic interesting iconic fine actress Liz was to even lower that to link her name with LL!! <– can't even respect her enough to write out her name!
who won't watch it

over at Isopix

YIkes, what mess, did he sleep in these clothes?! What has happened to him, he looks so sloppy. And that browny-gray hair (dirty dishwater color?) is awful. He looks older than his true age.

missmarple @ 05/02/2012 at 1:27 pm

He’s way older than he claims. There are telltale signs.


Hey, everyone!

Totally off topic – but I will get to that, in a moment…

Kathy – just watched Shame… I think the ending is open to whatever we want to think, which is refreshing…

Ana B and everyone who wants to see A Dangerous Method – I though Keira over-acted, but the film is good…. much better than Imdb credits it…

To answer your question, Kathy, I think the two parted ways because of their egos… Huuuuuge egos… :-P

Now, for the on topic – pls hit the thumbs down – why is our sexy GB so mad all the time? He looks like he wants to kick something…

Ciao, lovelies! Till tomorrow…


PS: Manny, I loved the Lockout humour… :-)

Oh… GB as Richard Burton? I don’t think so… But I would think Vincent Reagan could pull it off… Just love that guy and he does look a little bit like ****

Have a wonderful time wherever you are!

That’s because he has been practially everywhere. He is such a male w.h.o.r.e.

No no no…a THOUSAND times no. Can you even begin to imagine the fun all the paps would have dragging this thing through the mud? The title alone is a catastrophe waiting to happen. Seriously…”Liz and ****”? Oh, the humanity!

I can’t believe this – JJ censored me for typing the name D I C K

I don’t think he was in “the mood” yesterday. He seems all business. I think he is getting organized before he leaves town. He has projects lined up back to back, so he knows there won’t be much down time for the rest of this year. @GFW I think it’s one of those times he might not have wanted to be seen by the papas as he is getting a cup of coffee before he stars his day. Here are some more of those pictures. A very brooding GB.
As for LL, I think JJ just used her interview where she says he could be a good Richard Burton as an excuse to start a thread and have the fans riled up. JJ loves all the fighting that goes on here lol.
