Lindsay Lohan to Play Elizabeth Taylor: Best Choice to Play Legendary Actress?
The probation queen is going to play the legendary actress in "Liz & Dick," a Lifetime move based on the violet-eyed beauty's storied romance with actor Richard Burton.
Many have compared the rumored-to-be-pregnant actress's beauty to Liz Taylor's, and she probably does resemble her more than any other young starlet.
Like Liz, Angelina is the most iconic beauty of her day … and like Angelina, Liz caused the Brangelina scandal of her day when her fourth husband Eddie Fisher left his wife Debbie Reynolds to be with her.
Gorgeous 28-year-old Kunis is famous for her different-colored eyes … like Liz, who was known for her violet peepers.
The smoldering French actress kinda resembles Liz … and she has an Oscar under her belt.
Wilde is known for her cat-like eyes … and her coloring is not too far from Liz's.
Call us crazy, but with a little hair dye, we could see a resemblance here … and look what a great job she did playing Marilyn Monroe.
"We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor," said Rob Sharenow, executive vice president, programming, of Lifetime Networks. "She is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon."
Lohan added, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
Last year, Deadline.com reported that Martin Scorsese was eyeing Angelina Jolie to play Liz in another movie based on the Taylor-Burton love story. Seemed a fitting choice: Not only does Angie have the looks, Liz caused the Brangelina scandal of the day when her fourth husband Eddie Fisher left his wife Debbie Reynolds to be with her.
