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.
In case you hadn’t heard, Lindsay Lohan is getting all serious on us and is starring in a super distinguished biopic of Elizabeth Taylor called Liz & Dick…..for Lifetime. Yes, the life story of legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor will be immortalized as a Lifetime Movie starring Lindsay Lohan. The first images of Lohan as Taylor and Grant Bowler as Taylor’s lover/husband Richard Burton.
