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.

Yup    

i think this is a awful idea. however, like some people already stated, this is a great way to get press for a low-budget film. i was hoping that it would be a bigger project, but now that LL is in it, it ruins it. v.gotti should stick to what she does & let the agents do the auditioning!

Good. I'm happy for her. She needs a break after all the crap she has been going through. Even if she has brought a lot of it on herself. Maybe this will give her a new lease and encourage her to stop acting like an immature little party girl running around clubs and garbage like that.

I've often wondered about the "connectedness" of the Lohans. This confirmed my suspicions.

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.

Thank you, Miss Nikki. That's certainly interesting and contradicts TMZ's story.

Why is it not surprising that the Gotti's and the Lohan's are friends?

Going with what Nikki has told us:

Lindsay is getting TONS of free "positive" publicity for this stunt, which looks great for her upcoming trial. Brilliant manuver on Dina's part...but they've played the "oh, she has a film she needs to get to, she can't go to jail," card before, and was proven wrong that time, too.

IF the rumor were true, Victoria Gotti would have seriously sold herself short if she allowed LL to play her. Victoria looks a HECK of a lot better than Lindsay.

IF it were true, would Victoria think that lowly of herself to have herself portrayed by an unattractive, lying idiot? THAT'S what she wants to be remembered by?

This is probably gointo be a great film. Show's you how dumb Victoria Gotti is, if she thnks any portrayals will be flattering?(Niether should they be) What an idiot. She never did get that she was the butt of her own show.

As for Lindsay. A job is a job. I guess she could put up her own insurance. NONE OF THIS will change what happens in court.
