Lindsay Lohan Will Play Elizabeth Taylor and Rosie O’Donnell Is Pissed About It

Yesterday it was announced that Lindsay Lohan will continue her attempted comeback by portraying screen legend Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime Original Movie titled Liz & Dick. Or maybe she’s restarting her comeback. Did “Saturday Night Live” and Playboy count? Were those part of her “comeback,” or more evidence of her shameful downward spiral? I’m terrible at figuring that stuff out. Anyway, whatever, great, right? She was really good in Mean Girls way back when, so maybe this is a positive step for her. So I guess we can just move along and focus somet-[someone hands Rosie O’Donnell a microphone for some reason]…

Rosie O’Donnell is has taken a stand on Lindsay Lohan staring in the new Liz Taylor biopic. Appearing on NBC, the outspoken former talk show host said Lohan isn’t “capable” of playing Taylor because her personal life is a disaster.

While O’Donnell feels “very sorry for her” she says the troubled starlet did her last good piece of acting when “she was sixteen.” Noting that Lohan has had trouble making in on the big screen since then, O’Donnell proceeded to attack her recent performance on “Saturday Night Live.” Lohan “was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.”

When TV pundit Donny Deutsch chimed in to say that Lohan is “our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor”, O’Donnell pounced on him. “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen.” [ABC]

So, to recap: Lindsay Lohan, who is ostensibly an actress, got a job acting. In response, Rosie O’Donnell threw in her two cents on the matter by psychoanalyzing someone she doesn’t know and declaring them unfit to work because she doesn’t think someone with “personal problems” should be allowed to play Elizabeth Taylor in some dumb Lifetime movie. Then someone whose name is apparently Donny Deutsch said something bonkers and Rosie yelled at him and called him a crackhead.
