According to TOLD YA!.com, professional trainwreck Lindsay Lohan is in talks with Lifetime to play Elizabeth Taylor in a made-for-TV movie.
The 25-year-old actress is in early talks for the female lead in Lifetime’s original movie Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story, chronicling the enduring love of movie icons Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, whose fiery romance was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day.

If Lohan does get the role (and who’s to say she wouldn’t make for a great Elizabeth Taylor, says no one), she’ll join an esteemed group of will-work-for-food thespians who have starred in Lifetime original movies. The club includes: Jennie Garth in “Girl, Positive,” Thora Birch in “Homeless to Hazard: The Liz Murray Story,” Gail O’Grady in “Sex & the Single Mom,” Denise Richards AND Dean Cain in “I Do (But I Don’t),” and Caroline Rhea in “To Be Fat like Me.”
This is too much fun; they’re like real-life Troy McClure movies. Here are some more: Kim Basinger in “The Mermaid Chair,” Lacey Chabert in “What If God Were the Sun?,” Shannon Elizabeth in “Confessions of an American Bride,” Dana Delaney in “Baby for Sale,” and Terry O’Quinn in “My Stepson, My Lover.” He played neither the stepson nor the lover, but as one IMDb reviewer said, “There’s Not even any good SEX scenes here!”
