23 May 2012 10:44 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Lindsay Lohan is very unhappy with the actors who have auditioned for the role of Richard Burton in her new TV movie.

Lindsay Lohan reportedly unhappy with ‘Liz and Dick’ casting

22 May 2012 8:11 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

HollywoodNews.com: Lindsay Lohan is reportedly working hard getting ready to film the Elizabeth Taylor Lifetime biopic ‘Liz and Dick,’ but it sounds like there is one thing stalling the process.

It is being rumored that Lindsay is unhappy with the casting choices for the role of Richard Burton, states RadarOnline. The current choices are allegedly ‘Gossip Girl’ star Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire, and ‘CSI’ star Craig Robert Young.

She allegedly wants a major star, but considering her salary took up a lot of the budget, it’s pretty unlikely that she’ll get what she wants.

Who do you think should play him?
