Grant Bowler Cast In Lindsay Lohan's Liz Taylor Biopic

Every day we get closer and closer to a legitimate Lindsay Lohan comeback. We can feel it in our bones. Fueling that pleasant inter-bone feeling is the casting of True Blood werewolf Grant Bowler as Richard Burton in Lilo’s upcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick. That True Blood cred is making us feel like this made-for-tv movie is going to get made, though to be fair John Travolta was cast in that ill-fated Gotti biopic Lindsay was attached to last year. On the other hand, Liz & Dick is Lifetime! And isn’t also rumored to star a Kardashian!

Bowler also appeared in Lost, GCB and, most importantly, Ugly Betty, where he started as Wilhelmina’s insanely charming on-again, off-again lovah Connor. “Grant will add gravitas to our couple and bring to life one of the greatest actors who has ever lived,” executive producer Larry A. Thompson gushed to Deadline. “Burton was a Welsh poet, a rascal, and a man’s man, who swept Elizabeth Taylor off her feet and flew her so close to the sun that they both exploded into stardust that still lights up Hollywood.” Okay, okay, let’s not get too crazy here. Shooting hasn’t actually started yet and there is plenty of time for Lindsay’s weave to get caught in an escalator or for Grant to OD on fake blood or some such horror.
