The Lifetime network is trying to distract us from the fact that Lindsay Lohan owes the Chateau Marmont close to $50,000 by releasing stills of Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor in her comeback film “Liz & Dick.”
In these new photos, Lindsay channels her best Liz Taylor, and surprisingly, she does it well.
In one photo, Lindsay wears a yellow dress with flowers in her hair as she gazes lovingly into the eyes of Richard Burton.
In other shot she dresses as Cleopatra, Liz Taylor’s most famous film role and the film that brought her into the loving arms of Richard Burton. To be fair, Lindsay looks more like she’s going to a toga party than emulating a scene from the famous film.
In the last still, Lindsay goes through the aging process, appearing in a wig with gray highlights as Liz in her later years. Is it bad that she plays 75-years-old well?
It’s hard to judge acting techniques from still photos alone, but I think it’s safe to say, Lindsay won’t disappoint as Liz Taylor. Also, I guarantee that the Lifetime network will have more viewers on the premiere date of “Liz & Dick” that it ever has before or since.
“Liz & Dick” hits TV screens on November 3, 2012.
These photos come hot off the heels of Lindsay’s steep bar tab at the Chateau Marmont where she reported that the production of “Liz & Dick” was supposed to pay for her 47 day hotel stay.
The production begged to differ.
