Cue the laugh track: Lindsay Lohan will play acting legend Elizabeth Taylor on the small screen.
Just as long as she can stay out of trouble.
Lohan edged out competition from Megan Fox to portray the late screen goddess in Liz and Dick, a telemovie that will focus on Dame Elizabeth’s love affair with her Cleopatra co-star Richard Burton.
Now all the “Mean Girl” has to do is stay out of trouble.
Liz and Dick executive producer Larry Thompson has decided to give the job to Lohan, as long as she sticks to the rules of her probation following a string of legal woes. Lindsay’s probation on various counts of driving under the influence, shoplifting and violating probation is scheduled to end next month.
Production is expected to begin this spring. An air date has not yet been announced.
