Don’t get me wrong. It makes perfect sense that she was picked to be in the made-for-cable offering as Lifetime will get huge ratings because the wild Lohan is attached to the project. My problem with her casting is the same I have when an actress is selected to play Marilyn Monroe. Both women are such iconic figures that no actress seems worthy of playing the parts.
The film also stars Grant Bowler as Richard Burton and is scheduled to air later this year on the Lifetime channel.
Here’s one of the photos the cable channel has released. Let me know if you think Lohan was a good pick or if you have a better suggestion on who should have played Taylor.
