Lindsay Lohan

Late for 'Glee'

After a Night Out

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan
was late this morning for her guest appearance on "Glee" ... following a night out on the town. Coincidence?

Dot Marie Jones -- who plays Coach Beiste on the show -- tweeted, "Gonna be a long day!! Some ppl show up late and just throw a wrench in things. Not cool! I'd rather be an hour early (I was) than 5 minutes late!"

Dot didn't say who was late, but we've confirmed the person MIA was LiLo. 

Now here's the good news for Lindsay ... Sources connected with the production tell TMZ, Lindsay shot her big scenes the other day, and director Eric Stoltz has been saying she was "very professional." We're told she nailed her lines and was very polite to cast and crew.

Lindsay is back on set today just for reaction shots when the kids sing on the show. We're told her tardiness did not hold up production.

By the way, I seriously doubt anyone involved with the show will say anything publicly about how terrible she was, until after the episode airs. Doing so beforehand would hurt the ratings and possible cause her to not come in if they need her for retakes. Wait until after it's on, it bombs, and they're criticized for having her on it. Then the truth will come out.

Hope he has a plan B for a actress. Lindsay is never going to make it till June.


Elizabeth Taylor Biopic Producer: Lindsay Lohan "Most Insured Actress That Ever Walked"Tue., Apr. 24, 2012 5:45 AM PDT by Ken Baker, Ted Casablanca and Alyssa Toomey

Yesterday, it was officially announced that Lindsay Lohan will play Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick.

And while we've already given our stamp of approval, many of you readers are less than thrilled. There were some pretty harsh comments dissing the oft-troubled star, and it's clear plenty of you don't believe Lindsay has what it takes to play the Hollywood legend.

So perhaps it will make some of you Lindsay malcontents just a tiny bit happy to learn what a difficult time producer Larry Thompson's had insuring his controversial star:

READ: It's Official! Lindsay Lohan to Play Elizabeth Taylor, Producer Gushes LiLo Has "Sparkle of Today"

"Well, we have more than a Plan B actually," Thompson revealed in an exclusive interview with E! News, "[because] Lindsay Lohan may be the most insured actress that ever walked on a soundstage."

.Thompson declined to specify what the plan was, exactly. Megan Fox on standby? Who knows, but at least the dude's got another option!

Shocked? Well, ya shouldn't be—technically, any actor can be insured—Linds just holds a higher price tag based on her volatile past. Think along the lines of Robert Downey Jr., another actor who once had remarkably high insurance rate because of his high-risk behavior.

Thompson also admitted to moving the shooting location from Canada to L.A. in order to "minimize some risk," but it's clear he's still confident in his casting decision, specifically pointing out Lindsay's softer side of "vulnerability" needed to play the highly emotional legend.

READ: Five Reasons Lindsay Lohan Is Perfect to Play Elizabeth Taylor!

"Now if I learn to regret it sitting here today I think it is still for the movie a great risk to run."

Lohan, for her part, says, "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor. She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."

Added Thompson: "[Lindsay's] really excited by the challenge. She has a noble purpose; it's not like she's going to go do a little job—the responsibility of playing Elizabeth Taylor is large."

Totally. Almost as large as the insurance premium

She was out partying again? And she seriously expects to be able to do a movie about Liz Taylor? If I was the producer/director for the Taylor movie, Linds would be out of a job. She simply doesn't care about being on time unless being late can send her to jail for contempt of court. She still hasn't learned any lessons from her wild drinking and partying days.

Has anyone written the fox channel about Greta's decision to take Lindsay to the dinner? I know they read their letters. I'm not a fox fan, but a few years ago I sent off an e-mail about a writer (I can't remember who it was now), but Fox had that writer on the next day, and this was an obscure person.

Not surprising. She's a total f*** up. There is NO big come backk. She hasn't changed at all. Still out clubbing/partying, still lying about it and blaming everybody else, still committing crimes and probably still drinking and drugging.
Her doing a crappy made for TV Lifetime movie and a guest spot on Glee isn't going to do a damn thing for her career. When a former A-List actress starts doing Lifetime movies you know her career has gone down the toilet. And now she's again proven just how unreliable she is and then made excuses as to why she's late. Total has-been.

She gets chance after chance and this is their reward, she shows up late. Unprofessional, it doesn't matter if it's just for a minute reaction take or a days work, you show up on time and be ready to work. They have to quit covering for her and making excuses because she will never change if everyone keeps kissing her ass. At this point in her so called career, there is no excuse for tardiness.

It's called work ethic and the simple fact that this woman can't show up on time for a job because she had to go out all night shows that she could care less about Glee and thinks clubbing is what she should do instead of getting a nights rest before working. the fact that these were not her big scene being shot means nothing it just shows she cares nothing about those who are trying to give her a shot

Lindsay Lohan still gets herself caught again in her own lies. Right up where she claims was home watching TV, when she was not. Turns out Lindsay Lohan was lieing and got caught again. Who's fault this time.
