First Pics of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick



Last night Lifetime released the first of their official shots of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick with the delectable Grant Bowler playing the part of Richard Burton nuzzling on her neck and it has to be admitted that she looks fabulous. Albeit photo shopped fabulous.

I'm holding my hands up here and saying I'm sceptical about the feasibility of LiLo, the notorious tangerine partier, pulling off such an iconic role but I'm also hoping against hope that I'm wrong.

Making a splash online from E! yesterday too was an on site shot of Lindsay posing as Elizabeth in swimwear that I'd give at least 2 diamonds (ok cubic zirconium) for.
  


I want that suit, muchly. 

Shooting for this biopic started yesterday and is expected to last just 20 days in various 'secret locations' throughout LA, considering we've already had shots from day one, how secret can it be?

I'm just hoping there's no on set melt downs and we get the glamorous end product that would truly do Liz justice.

What do you make of Lindsay playing this part? Reckon she'll draw on her Mean Girls acting experience to pull it out of the diamante encrusted bag?

I am not, Lindsay might surprise us all and deliver a good performance and I really hope she does, I've always liked her. But she just does not have that air of class and elegance about her that Taylor had. Her years of drugs have taken it's toll on her face, she looks worn out.

I'm going to be a big meanie and say I don't think she deserves the part. I'll be interested to see the final result though.

She looks amazing to be fair but I have to agree I'm not sure she's deserving of the part of such an icon. But then again I'm sure Ms Liz would have been happy with the casting.

Disaster. Liz was a true movie star and an icon, lindsay is not. I shall remain sceptical.

She's an awful gobshite but she looks gorgeous in the very top photo. I will totally go to see this film so I can slag her but probably won't have to as the Daily Mail will be showing us daily screenshots of it!!
