Remember how Lindsay Lohan was in talks to play the late Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie? Well, Apparently there is another former A-List actress who also can’t get any work, and is also vying for the same role. Hint: It’s not Tara Reid.
Megan Fox, is reportedly also in talks to play Liz Taylor in the made-for-TV biopic.
Both Megan Fox and Lindsay are shortlisted for the role, which is bad news for Lindsay, who was hoping this role would finally be her career comeback.
According to Larry Thompson, the film’s producer, “I’ve been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversation with other actresses, including Megan Fox,” he tells E! News.
“It’s a very serious selection. It’s like casting for Hollywood royalty,” he adds.
Liz Taylor may be “Hollywood Royalty,” but it’s obvious his casting choices are from last year’s Hollywood royalty. Well in Lindsay’s case, make that 2004’s Hollywood royalty.
How sad that two former A-Listers are actually competing for a role in a Lifetime movie. I bet Lifetime doesn’t even take their actors out to lunch when courting them for a role. They probably bring some homemade sandwiches and make Lindsay and Megan meet them at a starbucks in Burbank, because their offices are always suspiciously “under construction.”
Anyways, TMZ states that Lindsay really wants this part and is trying to speed up her probation so that she can do the part.
Apparently, the producer wants to choose one of the actresses by next week, and shooting will begin in the spring.
Fortunately for Lindsay, if she keeps doing her community service as fast as she’s been, she’ll be finished by the end of March. Fingers crossed! May the best (wo)MAN win!
