Lindsay Lohan Taking (What’s Left of) Her Talents to West End Stage

Liz and Dick wasn’t quite the “career relauncher” Lindsay Lohan had hoped it’d be. And that OWN reality show was doomed from the word “bull$h!t.”

Linds, nonetheless, remains undeterred in her bid to reclaim her status as one of Young Hollywood’s brightest stars. The sometimes-redhead is taking that effort to the other side of the pond: Lohan’s been cast in a revival of Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, which is scheduled to begin performances on London’s West End in September.

The former “Mean Girl” has been cast in the role of Karen, a temporary secretary, in the latest revival of the Hollywood satire, the play’s producers announced Thursday. The role was originated by Madonna in the play’s 1988 production on Broadway.

Speed-the-Plow, which depicts two Hollywood executives trying to close a movie deal, will run at the Playhouse Theatre from Sept. 24 to Nov. 29.
