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.

If a probation officer finds that the person has violated his/her probation condition, then it is our responsibility to bring them back to court and face the judge. That’s why you see so many court appearances made by this individual.

And will continue to see these numerous court appearances, ad nauseum.

Thanks for sharing this interesting email, suza271. For those people who work as probation officers and who DO care and give a damned about trying to rehabilitate people, it certainly MUST be frustrating.

Noone here begrudges her getting a job. She has one. "Escort" for the hotel guy and he is parading her around doing her "job".

This? This is just media spin to try and make her look good and marketable. tick tock tick tock closer and closer to court day.

Does anybody remember the SOPRANOS episode where Christopher makes that slasher-mobster movie CLEAVER with the other gumbas?

That must be where this idea came from....AWESOME!

Like she said Gotti made sure she got the roll no other way it would have happened. What about her trial.

Still… this isn’t going to happen. Lindsay can’t get insured, and even if she could, she has that crack trial coming up. It’s a scheduling disaster!

Of course… now that I know the Lohans actually have a connection to the mafia, it’s making me rethink a lot of stuff. Was this the missing puzzle piece to understanding the Lohans all of this time?

Heheh, maybe the Mob is going to front the insurance money? ;-)

Nothing like a hefty bunch of morning BS to wake up to, though.

Nikki says, "non, non," about the alleged Dina/Victoria Gotti association. I must say, even if there is no connection, Dina has the Boss Tweed-esque (not a mobster, but he certainly could have passed for one) moves down pat.

In all honesty, I've wondered in the past if Dina didn't have Mob connections. Things move more smoothly in Lindsayland than I've ever seen anywhere else. And people certainly do fear getting entangled with the Lohans. Of course, it could simply be that Dina is an amazingly ruthless and greed-motivated person.
