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.

No reports on Deadline or The Hollywood reporter announcing it. Until then, I say Lindsay doesn't have the role.

Whoever cast her in this is an absolute fool. Is this a b movie or something? Kate Winslet was the obvious choice for anyone looking to make a respectable film. Elizabeth Taylor would be up in arms, as she should be.

What a disgrace to have this skank-loser play one of the greats of Hollywood who actually had talent. This is a major blow to Elizabeth Taylor fans.

Wel, alrighty then!! I guess Lifetime can't afford a real actress, so they went for this bargain basement skank who'll take some lines of blow for payment. Disgraceful!!.

Until I read an official release from Lifetime, I still say B.S. It's awful convenient Dina is in Los Angeles and spinning this. How many times has her camp said she's gotten some role only to have it blow up in their washed up faces?

Plus Liz had a very cultured beautiful sounding voice.
She was so well spoken.
This ho's voice is a gutter crack sound.
Strictly lower class.
