Confirmed As Liz Taylor, Out Of “Doomed Film”: Everything’s Coming Up Lilo!

For Lindsay Lohan, 2012 is starting to look a lot like 2005. Career-wise, we mean, not getting-out-of-a-car-with-no-underwear-wise. Lifetime confirmed today that Lindsay is the lead for Liz & Dick, their TV film about Elizabeth Taylor‘s romance with Richard Burton. “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in a statement. “She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.” Lilo then did a little exuberant end zone dance, but those are sort of hard to quote for the Internet.

As if that wasn’t enough proof that Lohan is on the right track, remember the other Linda Lovelace film? The one that replaced Lindsay with Malin Akerman? Maybe all things do happen for a reason. “Last I heard, which was just before Christmas, we were supposed to start shooting in March, and now it’s April. It’s been one of those doomed films that I absolutely love and totally believe in…” Akerman told The Hollywood Reporter about the movie, entitled Inferno. “I would hope and love for it to go, but now this other movie is coming on that Amanda Seyfried did, and I kind of feel like, ‘S–, we should have been on that, we should have done it.'” Another bullet dodged, Lindsay! Now if only she can stop (allegedly) getting into nightclub brawls, Lohan will be all set. One step at a time, we guess…

Lindsay Lohan May Be Replaced In Lovelace Biopic


Not a big surprise, but it appears that Lindsay Lohan‘s career is going to take a hit on account of all that time she’s spending in jail and rehab. The producers of the much-buzzed-about Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno, which was supposed to mark LiLo’s acting comeback, might be giving her the boot. Filming was supposed to begin in August, but a 90-day rehab stint would certainly make that hard. Word is the Lindsay will be replaced by Sarah Scott who is rumored to have met with the film’s producers yesterday. So who exactly is Sara Scott? Good question!

The actress has had guest-starring roles on True Blood, Medium, Arrested Development and Nip/Tuck, but this film would mark her first starring role. She’s also got a website where you can watch her acting reel (do yourself a favor and watch till the end – her role as “goth girl on scooter” is a delight). In most of her previous roles and headshots Scott has had blonde hair, but yesterday she was seen with a red dye job which matches Lovelace – and old Lindsay – more closely. Sure, Scott doesn’t share the same alliterative nickname (Lovelace and Lohan are both “LiLo”, or hadn’t you noticed?) but she’s SaSco which is just as catchy.
