Lindsay Lohan takes the lead in the upcoming Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, set to air in the Us in just over a month’s time.
We saw a captivating Lohan grace the poster last month, and now a new featurette has debuted online, giving us a look behind the scenes, in which the actress talks a little about the similarities between Elizabeth Hurley and herself.
Their subsequent white-hot, scandalous love affair gave rise to the paparazzi and they became the most hunted and photographed couple on earth. Their rocky, passionate, relationship, born in front of the cameras, was captured in a series of films, including Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?.

There may be a lot of truth to the idea that Liz & Dick is (one of) the most talked about movie of the year, but I’m not absolutely sure it’s a claim I would feature.
Good or bad, Lindsay Lohan or no, and if you’re the right crowd, Lifetime or no, there’s no denying that the movie takes on interesting subject matter, and is potentially well worth watching just to catch some glimpse into the lives of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Of course, I don’t know that it has anything to say that isn’t well-worn material, but it’s worth finding out.
What do you think about this one, and is the movie, wherever it lands, overshadowed simply by the fact that Lohan is in it? I’d like to know where the public is coming down on this one. Will you watch? »

It’s been a few years since Lindsay Lohan was last seen on our screens, but her return in just a matter of weeks away now, with Lifetime’s Liz & Dick due to air this coming November, telling the story of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.
Lohan takes the lead opposite Grant Bowler, and now the first poster for the movie has arrived, putting Lohan front and centre, with a pair of rather beautiful (albeit edited) purple eyes.

Here are several photos of the 26-year-old actress Lindsay Lohan from the Lifetime biopic, Liz & Dick, proving she can still embody old-style Hollywood glamor.
It’s not hard to guess that sometimes troubled Lohan stars as the late Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor alongside True Blood’s Grant Bowler, who plays one of Taylor’s many husbands and the man considered the love of her life, Richard Burton.
The film chronicles Taylor and Burton’s fiery romance and will show Taylor over several decades, from their brief initial encounter at a 1954 pool party to their collaboration on the set of 1963s Cleopatra all the way until Burton’s death in 1984 as evidenced by this picture of Lohan as Liz in her later years.
Lohan’s role as Taylor is her first major role since 2010s Machete.

Though Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) was a much-maligned choice to portray Elizabeth Taylor in her upcoming Lifetime biography, new photos from the production seem to suggest the troubled young actress may actually be a decent stand-in for Taylor. Liz & Dick chronicles the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor (Lohan) and Richard Burton (Grant Bowler) from their brief initial encounter at a 1954 pool party to their collaboration (of all sorts) on the set of 1963's Cleopatra, through their tempestuous relationship all the way until Burton's death in 1984. Hit the jump for the photos and more on the production. What's interesting about the pictures is how 26 year old Lohan is actually a pretty good ringer for an older Taylor. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Elizabeth no, but Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf Elizabeth, yes (Taylor was known to hate being called Liz. One can only assume she is spinning in her grave »

The Daily Beast (or rather me directly) obtained a production draft of Lifetime’s Elizabeth Taylor biopic starring Lindsay Lohan. I pick out eight especially salacious bits from the script. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "Liz & Dick: 8 Crazy Scenes from Lindsay Lohan’s Elizabeth Taylor Biopic," in which I read Christopher Monger's script and pick out the eight craziest, oddest, most salacious bits of Lifetime's upcoming Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton biopic, Liz & Dick, starring Lindsay Lohan. When considering actresses to play the late, beloved Academy Award–winner Elizabeth Taylor, the first name that comes to most people’s minds likely isn’t Lindsay Lohan. And yet the troubled, talented 25-year-old actress is currently playing Taylor in Lifetime’s made-for-tv movie Liz & Dick, about the tumultuous romance between Taylor and her costar/husband Richard Burton (played here by True Blood’s Grant Bowler »
