One might think that Lindsay Lohan would be thanking her lucky stars that she can still convince Hollywood heavyweights to take a chance by casting her in a film — given her storied history with nose candy and all.
Alas, it was not to be. We hear LiLo hasn’t toned down the diva at all as she prepares to begin filming on the made-for-TV movie that’s being billed as her big comeback.
The Playboy centerfold has vetoed all the actors who’ve auditioned for the male lead in her controversial Liz Taylor telemovie, Liz and Dick. Production on the Lifetime Original Movie is set to begin in just a few weeks, but there’s still no Dick.
Yeah…you can thank Lindsay for that.
A host of dashing actors have been auditioning for the role of British actor Richard Burton — the love of Liz’s life — but insiders say Lindsay has dismissed all of them. The rejects include Gossip Girl star Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire and CSI’s Craig Robert Young.
A production squeal tells Radar Online:
“Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there. Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max.”
The tipster adds:
“…The producers will try to land someone that Lindsay likes, but, if push comes to shove, they will just cast the role without her approval.”
Who do you think should play Richard Burton in Liz and Dick?
