Lindsay Lohan wants to go to London to find Richard Burton


Lindsay Lohan has finally signed an official deal to play Elizabeth Taylor in a (snicker) Lifetime movie, and she's already acting like the diva we all knew she was and has no right to be. It seems she wants an A-list actor to play Richard Burton. She does realize this is Lifetime we're talking about, right?

It sounds like the lead choices are Gossip Girl's Matthew SettleCSI's Craig Robert Young or Sean Maguire. Those are unacceptable, as far as Lohan is concerned: "Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there," a source told "Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max. The producers don't need to get Lindsay's approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy."

Well, that's their first big mistake. Wait, no, the first mistake was hiring Lindsay in the first place. Not they're stuck with her and her demands to go to England to find a costar. Just put a CPR dummy up there with her -- not only will she not notice the difference, she may even get upstaged.
