Lindsay Lohan really is playing Elizabeth Taylor




You know how Lindsay Lohan has been saying and saying and saying she's playing Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime movie? Of course you do, because you read this trash every day (thanks for that, by the way, because daddy has a baby Juice* to feed). Problem is, she hadn't actually been offered the job. Well, until now.

LiLo will now officially play Liz in Liz & Dick, according to a network announcement to Entertainment Weekly. It will focus on Taylor's adulterous wooing of and two marriages to Richard Burton, and is slated to beign shooting in June. That gives Lohan plenty of time to get arrested for something else and ruin her chances at ever starring in anything ever again.

"I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," Lohan said. "She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."

One person not too happy about the selection, however, was outspoken Rosie O'Donnell, who freaked on the Today show Tuesday when Donny Deutsch called Lohan "our generation's Elizabeth Taylor" by shouting, "You're out of your mind! You're a crackhead! ... The last thing she did good she was 16. ... I don't think she's right for the role and I don't think she's capable at this point of doing what's needed to portray that character." Watch that clip below. Our resident Elizabeth Taylor fan, Deal Diva Stephanie, had only one reaction: "Wow. No. ... Just because they both went to Betty Ford doesn't make them duplicates."
