Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox vying to play Elizabeth Taylor



rsz_tbd-meganfox011812.jpgWhat's worse than the idea of an Elizabeth Taylor biopic featuring Lindsay Lohan? One featuring Megan Fox, natch. Good thing it's only for a Lifetime movie.

"I've been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox," Liz and Dick executive producer Larry Thompson told E!. "It's a very serious selection. It's like casting for Hollywood royalty." Why are tehy fishing for stars in the shallow end of the actress pool, then?

Thompson declined to name other names, but he did say a selection will be made soon so shooting can begin in the spring. There also was no mention who would potentially play Richard Burton, although we'd bet Channing Tatum would have a shot, at this rate. The only way this could sound like a worse idea is if the air date was slated for Dec. 21, 2012. The Mayans were right!
