Lohan in talks to play Liz

We thought that she saw herself as more of a Marilyn. But Lindsay Lohan is in ‘early talks’ to play Elizabeth Taylor in a TV movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story, in development since last May, will explore Taylor’s defining romance with Richard Burton.

Should Lohan secure the part, it will be her first movie role since something called Machete was released straight to DVD in 2010. Since then, Lohan has done jail time and posed for Playboy—an exploit she holds in common with Taylor. The icon posed mostly nude in 1963, the year , her first film with Burton,was released.
