Lindsay Lohan

HANDPICKED

By Victoria Gotti

4/8/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan beat out Blake Lively AND Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti -- and TMZ has learned ... Victoria herself made sure that happened.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role -- but John Gotti's famously blonde daughter wasn't having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead ... and producers loved the idea.

Not all that surprising -- according to sources, Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family ... and she often spends time with them on Long Island.

Meanwhile, Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for "Superman" -- but we're told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th ... to close the Gotti deal for good.

Lindsay was picked because the other actresses do not look 'aged' enough to play Gotti.

I read on another site that the production company for the film denied this rumor. If it does happen, hey, good for her. However, I am skeptical to say the least. We"ll see.

Another stellar move by Lohan and another stellar performance, I'm sure. Let her pick up the dirt parts out of the bottom of the barrel. So exciting for Lohan, to actually have a script.

So, talent was never considered. This was just a case of connections throwing this job her way. This movie is starting to stink. I'm beginning to doubt that John Travolta will be stupid enough to take a roll.
I doubt that Blake Lively and Sienna Miller were considering playing the part.
It seems like I heard that the movie will be directed by a photographer, not a real director. Hold your nose.

On last night's E!, they stated that E! called the producers to verify this rumor and were told by the producers that THEY HAVE NEVER SPOKEN TO LINDSAY LOHAN AT ALL ABOUT THIS PART. E! called it a false report.
If she did get the part, then good for her. Hope she turns her life around. BUT after yesterdays item in blindgossip.com, it seems she hasn't changed one bit. Personally, I think there are far better actresses around than Blowhan and a lot cheaper, insurance wise.

Way to go, Linds. Keep up the good work putting your life back together. Unfortunately, there will always be these haters who can't stand to see you succeed.

Break a leg, kid.

E news just reported on its "So True/So False" (11:52 pm EST) that the rumor of Lindsay on this film is "SO FALSE" - they contacted the owner of the production company.

Wow, I didn't realize that this was a Victoria Gotti production. Kind of like Escaping the Game is really a Lady Victoria production. Couple of Hollywood powerhouses there. I must admit though that I am surprised that Victoria G would lower herself to call Lohans personal friends.

Way to go LL. Most of the haters out there just jealous because they can not get into acting. Live your life while the haters out there hate theirs.
