Lindsay as Stevie Nicks?

11/27/2006 10:44 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has released a couple of records, but is still much better known for her acting roles and late night Hollywood activities. She's yet to deliver a smash hit to transform her into a bona fide music star.

Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Lohan
To increase her chances of making a breakthrough on the charts, she might take a page out of Jamie Foxx's book and use a movie role to boost her music cred. Foxx, of course, was brilliant in "Ray," and as TMZ noted the other day, used the role as a vehicle to launch his music career.


According to a source quoted in Life & Style, Lindsay may make a Ray-like film portraying rock goddess Stevie Nicks. "Lindsay says that movies like "Ray" and Walk the Line" are good examples of the kinds of projects she'd like to do," the source says. "She feels like she's found a dream role in a story about Stevie Nicks at the height of Fleetwood Mac's fame. Lindsay loves the music of that era." Linds may even be looking to wear a producer hat for this project as well.

Lindsay recorded a breathy version of Stevie's hit, "Edge of Seventeen" (I still prefer Jack Black's in School of Rock), on her record released last December, "A Little More Personal (Raw)." Even though the record didn't garner rave reviews, it makes sense that Lindsay may think she can pull off something like this. A Lohan rep says she has "no clue" as to whether La Lohan is seriously considering the role.

A mediocre rock band??? You must either be really old, or extremely young. I was a teenager, during the seventies and everyone, I mean EVERYONE, loved Fleetwood Mac. What were you listening to.....The Partridge Family?

This request is directed at the ones who are insulting Stevie: Kindly keep your rude opinions to yourselves, because they are unnecessary, untrue, and completely degrading. I saw her concert in Las Vegas, by the way, and she looked stunning (as always) and her voice had me mesmerized. I've been a fan for thirty-one years, and it hurts to see rude things said about her. If it does that to a fan....imagine what it would do to her....think about it.

Um, there's a world of difference between Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and Stevie Nicks. There's really no one out there clamorning for a Stevie Nicks biopic. There's no script, there's no story...sounds like an awful lot of wishful thinking. Much like Lindsey's singing career. I hope she's not just jealous of Paris'...ahem..."career".

Though Ray was a good movie and all I think Jamie Fox would have made it in the music bizz even if she had not done the movie because he's a good singer! Lindsay has no talent as a singer so it does not matter if she does the movie or not!

FYI, Jamie Foxx did not use RAY as a vehicle to launch his music career, Jamie, actually launched his music career and his first album in 1994, titled Peep This!

Puh lease, she's not even good enough to hold Stevie Nicks's dogs leash. Stevie Nicks is a true songstress and if I could only take one CD into a cave with me you better believe it would be one of hers and not one of La Lohan!

We, are not amused.    

Doesn't it look like someone is holding a small, but very stinky turd under the nose of CARRIE FISHER in that photograph?

Good god NO!! That skag is not fit to drape Stevie's shawls. Please find someone with TALENT. How about some unknown actress that deserves a break. Not some slut that got the role for her oral skills (and I don't mean singing).

I'm a huge Stevie Nicks fan and wouldn't cross the street to see a film with that Lohan whore in it.

It doesn't really matter if Lindsay does this movie or not, fact being, Lindsay Lohan is a horrible actress and singer. Not to mention.. she's what 20, 21 years old?? She sounds almost like a 30 year old man!
