Lindsay Lohan -- Up for a Role in New 'Superman'

2/8/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... Lindsay Lohan?

0206_lindsay_lohan_superman_ex
Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ ... Lindsay's people have had multiple phone conversations within the last few weeks with the people behind the new "Superman" reboot. We're told Lindsay is up for a role in the flick -- and while it isn't Lois Lane, we hear it would be a "major character."

We're told Lindsay is supposed to meet personally with the "Superman" people soon -- but she might be a little busy with that felony grand theft charge thing. 

According to our sources, Lindsay is "dying to show people again how talented she is" and is worried this latest run-in with the law (for which she maintains she's innocent) could ruin her shot at the movie. 

Apparently that necklace she's accused of stealing is made out of kryptonite.

Reps for Warner Bros had no comment.

everybody should just stop paying attention to this girl-woman...any "news" about her is just old news...she's done in terms of an acting career...really not much left for her...if she isn't properly punished for this alleged theft there is definitely something wrong with the justice system.

"SOME OF THESE HIDEOUS COMMENTS MAKE ME WONDER WHAT THE CHILDREN OF THESE "LOSERS" ENDURE, THAT IS IF THEY HAVEN'T LEFT THEM IN A HOT CAR OR LOST ON A CAMPING TRIP SOMEWHERE. AND FOR GOODNESS SAKE..............PLEASE, PLEASE, DON'T ALLOW THEM TO HAVE PETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

SamRo, can you please come and get Liehan? She's having a meltdown here. And don't forget, she has to save some of the high drama for her upcoming court case.


I SHUDDER TO THINK OF THE PAIN OTHERS GO THROUGH JUST BEING AROUND THESE NEGATIVE LINDSEY HATERS, MUCH LESS BEING RELATED TO SAY "DAVEY BOY" DID YA NOTICE HOW HE KNOWS "EVERYTHING" LINDSEY? TO QUOTE SHAKESPEARE....."THE LADY DOTH PROTEST TOO MUCH" NUFF SAID

No, better still, instead of quoting Shakespeare, Liehan, why don't you dig out the Constitution again and look up all of the various ways in which your "rights" have been violated. Or better still, the Declaration of Independence! "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights..."...Lindsay Lohan should NOT be locked up. How in the Hell can she take part in the pursuit of Happiness if she can't get hold of a line or twelve! And it states RIGHT THERE that all men (and that includes women too, btw) have the unalienable Right to Pursue Happiness. Your Honor, snorting coke is my unalienable Right!

(Liehan sits down, satisfied with her defense.)

Hahahaahaaa!!! Lindsay expected a discount from Betty Ford because she's a celebrity and would bring POSITIVE PUBLICITY!!...........

You know the old saying: You can take Lindsay Lohan out of Hollywood, but something something something she'll a spoiled little self-entitled bitch. Wait, that's a saying, right? From the Chicago Sun Times:

[Lindsay] Lohan has been given a bit of a cold shoulder about her request for a discount on the $30,000 monthly fee [at the Betty Ford Clinic]. While the actress thinks her being there has brought the clinic a lot of positive publicity, a longtime staff member tells me, “We don’t need PR. Betty Ford has a waiting list. We have never had to promote ourselves. People are always anxious to come here.”

Lindsay's trying to squeeze money out of an everyday situation no matter how tacky or tasteless it makes her look? Obviously Lindsay doesn't realize that rehab facilities don't have to promote their services. There'll always be a need for them as long as there's drug addicts Hollywood.

Up for a role in Superman? As what? Perhaps as the street hooker who points and then yells "the black kid did it!"

I heard Mandy Moore might play Lois Lane she might not like Lindsey Lohan in it she doesn't get along with her at all. I don't Mandy Moore think doesn't get along with her at all.

Notice they didn't say the Superman people were courting her! Fact is, the Hohans have probably been stalking the people and begging them to give Lindsay a part. Her meeting is going to be in the street outside their building where she will wait until they come out and then beg them for a chance.

Is this a repeat role? I thought she did that years ago!? Ohhh... were talking about her having a role in a Superman movie, not being an inspirational subject in Eminem's song "Superman."
