When I first read Deadline.com's report that Lindsay Lohan was in talks to play Elizabeth Taylor I thought it must be Lindsay playing a role like in a Miami dinner theatre production of National Velvet where the actors have little wooden horses they ride on stage while the waiters are clearing the appetizers. This is pretty much the stage at where Lindsay's career is right now. Yes, I see what you are saying and you could make the case that she could do some community theatre in certain small towns.
“Both had domineering stage mothers, little semblance of a real childhood, fame from a young age, substance abuse issues, public emotional outpourings, and copious amounts of tabloid drama. The key difference, though, is that Elizabeth Taylor had a true record of achievement before she became the most notorious movie star in America.”
