Megan Fox And Lindsay Lohan Are Competing For That Elizabeth Taylor Role Now

Last week, we learned that Lindsay Lohan is up for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie and as of this morning, her mom was trying to convince people it’s because Lindsay is so mature now. Turns out the producers are basically looking for free press because not only are they confirming she’s up for the role, but so is Megan Fox who’s suddenly in the made-for-TV industry now. E! News reports:

“I’ve been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox,” Larry Thompson, the executive producer of Lifetime’s Liz and Dick, told E! News exclusively.
Thompson declined to elaborate further on specifics of the negotiations, but added that being in talks with more than one actress is not meant as an affront to the talent involved, but rather is simply de rigueur for projects of this nature.
“It’s a very serious selection,” Thompson continued. “It’s like casting for Hollywood royalty.”

Granted, Megan Fox almost talked herself out of a career by shitting into Michael Bay‘s good Lamborghini driving hand, she’s managed to claw her way back by landing roles in respectable comedies like Judd Apatow’s This Is Forty and Jon Hamm’s girlfriend’s Friends With Kids, so there’s no way she’s doing Lifetime movies. So what’s essentially happening here is the producers are naming media lightning rods before eventually settling on Jennifer Love Hewitt. Seriously, this dude might as well have said, “Well, we think Casey Anthony would be perfect for the part, but you know, it could go to Meryl Streep. Hollywood’s so mysterious!”

  1. What casting agency in their right mind would put the two of them in competition for that role?!?! Are they kidding? It should go to Megan Fox.

      probably wants to try them out on the casting couch. skanky ginger or sexy raven slut.

      “What casting agency in their right mind would put the two of them in competition for that role?!?!”

      A casting agency that only exists in the minds of their desperate agents.

    • Randal

      This is a tough call, for both are highly talented and have brought their movie genres a lot of exposure through the years. But, when it comes down to skill and playing the part, Lindsay is the choice for playing Elizabeth Taylor, while Megan can transform herself for another role.

      What casting agency? The one that is actually a pr firm with full knowledge that neither of them have the chops or the audience appeal to actually be in consideration for the role but wants to make sure as many people as possible hear about and follow the news of their client’s production.

  3. dude!

    I say go with Ms. Fox. Hands down

  4. Austin "Danger" Powers

    They can compete all they want for the role neither of them will be getting.

  5. No really

    Somehow I don’t think that the freckelslady ressembles Cleo.
    You go Megan!

  6. Just Saying...

    Hasn’t Jolie already been cast for this role?

  7. it had to be said

    I don’t know if I’d let Lohan “compete” for the role. I don’t want to get an STD just for the sake of “competition.” Fox, on the other hand, is too skinny with no tits, but does have a pretty mouth, so she might be able to “compete.”

  8. Clarence Beeks

    At least it will force Lohan to have dark hair for a while. She looks good with dark hair.

  9. I think Lindsay meant to audition for another “Liz & Dick” movie… Just sayin…

    • Star Droppings

      “Who the hell are ‘Liz and Dick’?! My agent told me ‘Lez and Dick’ was MY life story!”

    As I said last time this story came out, I’m calling BS on every front. This is simply to create “buzz” for everyone and it’ll never get made, because to quote David Mamet about Hollywood, they’re all whores. But it’s a people business.

  11. So, a Lifetime movie. Isn’t this where people who were not popular enough to be on Dancing With The Stars or Celebrity Wife Swap go to make rent money?

  12. Grand Dragon

    If Megan kills and eats Lindsay, then this might be feasible.

  13. adam

    Playing a woman who got married eight times would kill Jennifer Love Hewitt (allthough it might be a good opportunity to get rid of the three rings…)

    It’s like a clash of the Titans…if Titans were washed-up skanks who no director or production insurance company would touch with a ten-foot pole.

  16. Frank

    They’re both rotten, talentless, hacks.

  17. Richard McBeef

    i’m not sure how this can be settled outside of a bra and panties wrasslin’ match or just a choose your medieval weapon of choice fight to the death. either way it’s being ordered on pay per view and masturbated to.

    Tough choice. On the one hand you’ve got an untalented, self-important bitch who badmouths everyone she works with (not to mention the ghost of Marilyn past haunting the place up), or a crackwhore who doesn’t show up for work and basically snorts coke off the best boy’s cock in exchange for more TP in her dressing room toilet (which they’d have given her for free for just asking”.

    How can this movie not ROCK???

    • The Critical Crassness

      Good assessment McFeely……at least Lohan has one attribute that could mirror Liz…..big boobs…

  19. Mando

    Lindsay for Elizabeth! Megan is like a wet noodle.

  20. Venom

    That is going to be one lucky casting couch.

  21. Rico Jones

    Megan Fox is already reduced to doing LifeTime movies?

  22. mrsmass

    megan fox needs to lay off whatever she’s doing to her face. she’s almost unrecognizable.

  23. Okay, let me get this straight… Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan are in competition to play Elizabeth Taylor in a LifeTime movie? Is vultures fighting over a corpse in the desert an apt metaphor?

  24. LillySawko

    Megan Fox vs. Lindsay Lohan. It’s like watching Celebrity Deathmatch. Or Robot Chicken.

  25. thread killer

    This competition will make perfect sense after either David Arquette or Tom Green are chosen to portray Richard Burton.

  26. LJ

    Got to keep in mind that this is the same Larry Thompson who was Executive Producer of the Opra Biopic film for Lifetime in 2010…..how’d that work out.

    Larry Thompson looks like he’s a bigger whore than these two girls and half the porn actresses in LA.

      Your link worked well! Want some tciehe help?She looks scrumptious. I’d kiss her. :-)PS: Windows Live Writer, free, makes posting links and pics really, really easy. It’s like Microsoft Word (but much better) for blogging.

    More likely, Liz is spinning faster in her coffin than a PG&E turbine.

  29. Jade

    I hope Fox gets it. I won’t watch any new movie that stars Lohan. I view any movie that Lohan, from this point on, might be in as low budget and bad if they have to stoop that low to go to her.

    Having Lohan play Taylor is a slap in the face to the poor dead woman. She wasn’t a piece of trash, so why portray her with a piece of trash?

  30. cc

    I think these two thespians are excellent choices for this role. Elizabeth Taylor, if she’s watching, would swell with pride.

  31. Just throw the two of them in a cage to duke it out for the role. If we’re lucky, neither of them will make it out alive and the role will go to someone with talent.

    Look at what that idiot has done with the tatoo on her arm. Stupid bitch.

  33. I smell a reality show – “The Ultimate Bitch-Off”.

  34. Mama Pinkus

    Ms. Taylor was true natural beauty – Megan is too plastic to play the role and Ms. Lohan – she’s not capable of acting in school plays these days

    Well, both are shitty actresses. And one looks like a crackhead while the other looks like a mummy thanks to the botox. Who else is going to audition? Kim Kardashian?

    Larry Thompson just figured how to get blow jobs everyday for free. Congratulations!

    She looks as though she can’t breathe.

  41. TaT

    I think Megan is really good in cheesy campy horror movies, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, alot of people like camp. I loved her in Jennifers body. But, Elizabeth Taylor? No.

    • T-800

      Agree, Fox could find a niche for herself. But not until she gains forgiveness from the Godfather of Hollywood she upset with her stupid comments.

  42. CranAppleSnapple

    Ew, they actually look really alike. In two of the photos they share the same facial expression. Probably from the same silicone mould.
    I’d rather they did a porn remake of The Patty Duke Show than besmirch Liz. Why hasn’t that ever been suggested?

  43. T-800

    If Fox dropped her ego she might become an acceptable B actress. As for Lohan, she’s pretty much done for. Sad really, for both of them.

  44. Ed Nonymous

    They both suck.

  45. Jay

    God, Megan looks more retarded than ever. That eightball didn’t make you OD hard enough? Then why not just run out and play in traffic like the good little mongoloid that you are.

  46. me

    What happened to their faces?!

  47. Neutral

    Certainly they could find someone that is at least pretty to play Elizabeth Taylor. She was BEAUTIFUL. Lindsay looks like she’s been rode hard and put up wwt. With all the beautiful women in Hollywood, this is the best they can come up with?

    The best thing about this picture is her “removed” Monroe tattoo. Tattoo fail — just like her lip/cheek implants fail.
