This is a complete travesty. Megan Fox is an actor that should just stand there, look pretty and shut up. Lohan, well, she's had her moments, but we all know what a waste of oxygen she is. Maybe she will surprise, but playing Taylor in a biopic is not something I think will work. Not at all.
There's more than meets the eye to the Elizabeth Taylor biopic that was supposed to mark Lindsay Lohan's triumphant acting comeback.
"Transformers" star Megan Fox is also in talks for the lead role in Lifetime's "Liz and Dick," about the Hollywood icon's stormy relationship with Richard Burton.
"I've been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox," the film's executive producer, Larry Thompson, told E! News.
"It's a very serious selection. It's like casting for Hollywood royalty."
Lohan hopes to clear up her legal status with a probation hearing Tuesday that would allow her to resume her career. Her troubles with the law already may have cost her the starring role in "Lovelace," about the famed porn star Linda Lovelace, a role that eventually went to Malin Akerman.
Fox — who not that long ago was considered one of Hollywood's hottest up-and-coming actresses, thanks largely to her work in “Transformers” — was left out of last summer's sequel "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" after she compared her director, Michael Bay, to Hitler.
