Lindsay Lohan

I'm Living & Breathing Liz Taylor

to Prep for Movie Role

2/21/2012 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay just inked a deal with Lifetime to play Liz Taylor.
Lindsay Lohan ain't no slacker -- TMZ has learned, the actress is studying up hardcore for her new movie role ... doing everything she can to accurately portray a young Elizabeth Taylor.

In case you haven't heard -- Lindsay just inked a deal with Lifetime to play Liz Taylor in the network's new made-for-TV biopic called "Liz and Dick." Production is scheduled to kick off late March, after Lindsay's probation is terminated.

Lindsay is telling friends, she's taking her new gig extremely seriously -- "obsessing over getting the part right" for the film.

According to sources, Lindsay is doing nothing but watching old Liz Taylor movies to help her recreate the Hollywood icon's posture, speech, and every other little detail.

We're told Lindsay has also been watching old Liz interviews online and reading a bunch of Liz biographies.

Lifetime is taking a hard stance with Lindsay too -- demanding she complete ALL her probation requirements before filming begins ... which Lindsay has promised to do.

Yes, but can she stop being a crack-head? That is the key.

"Liz and ****"? Are you sure this isn't a VIVID Production? Read the fine print Lindsay.

Another failure waiting to happen. Why is Lifetime spending money on this no talent?

I would never support her movie no matter how well she does. People need to BOYCOTT the druggies! Sorry, Lohan, you will never be Liz, in real life or a movie.

Lindsay ain't no Liz Taylor. It's a shame Lifetime would hire such a skank to portray her.

Yuck. I can't believe they are casting this classless tart. Disgrace to Ms. Taylor's memory.

Regardless of her background or other matters, Lohan possesses facial bone structure that resembles beauties like Marilyn Monroe or Liz Taylor. Strictly from a visual standpoint, she may be able to pull it off.

What a joke! This ho can't act, a decade ago when she was a child "actress", she was playing herself, a child. I hope they focus on Taylor's later years, because Blohan looks 45 with freckles. Elizabeth Taylor is a Hollywood, and worldwide, icon. For this loser to play her, even on a crap TV channel - which one can turn off or change the channel - is a disgrace to Taylor's legacy. Blohan is a loser, has no talent, and should never have been given this opportunity.
