Lindsay Lohan
's finally looking the part -- trying on some crucial Elizabeth Taylor-inspired outfits for her new movie ... and TMZ has obtained pics of the wardrobe action.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, the actress is dead set on nailing Liz Taylor in her upcoming Lifetime movie "Liz and Dick" -- so she's spending countless hours trying to pick out the PERFECT outfits for the role.

We’re told Lindsay has final say on all wardrobe decisions for the film and has been giving major input into how to perfect Liz’s looks.

As we reported, Lindsay's been obsessing over Liz trying to get into the Hollywood legend's head, studying her constantly for the last few months.

The photos were snapped earlier this week during a wardrobe fitting. The first outfit was selected to recreate a famous photo shoot from Elizabeth's teenage years. The second is based on a Valentino dress Liz once wore.

"Liz and Dick" is scheduled to start shooting next month.

I'm sorry, but you guys just don't get it. Lindsay Lohan is the female lead in this-we'll call it a movie, to be polite.
Lindsay Lohan is also the wardrobe director.
Lindsay Lohan is also the casting director.
Remember her multiple roles in that awful remake of The Parent Trap and (dare I saw it) I Know Who Gagged Me???
SHE'LL BE HER OWN DICK!
In fact, the way this is looking, she could attempt to impersonate another actual actor and do an Alec Guiness in Kind Hearts and Coronets by playing almost all the key roles. But that assumes that there will be other roles besides LiLiz and LiDick, which I doubt. How long would it take her to cast them?

I'm not sure if this article has been posted. It's funny that they use the name of Dick



Lindsay Lohan not happy with choice of Dick


22 May 2012

Lindsay Lohan is very unhappy with the actors who have auditioned for the role of Richard Burton in her new TV movie.

The troubled actress is set to play the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor in 'Liz and Dick', but is not content with the possible choices - Matthew Settle, Sean Maguire and Craig Robert Young - and wants new auditions to take place in London.

A source told RadarOnline.com: 'Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there.

'Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star.

'However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200,000, max. The producers don't need to get Lindsay's approval of who will play Richard Burton, but they want to keep her happy.'

Producers will not be following up on Lindsay's request for a trip to the UK because there is not a big enough budget, but are trying to appease her wishes.

The source added: 'There just isn't any money in the budget, or time, to do so. The producers will try to land someone that Lindsay likes, but, if push comes to shove, they will just cast the role without her approval.'

The movie is set to begin filming in a few weeks.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I hope Larry didn't pay her upfront. She will use that money to pop off to Cannes and will 'lose her passport' when its time to start filming. He was warned. . . .

I am sure that Lindsay is already in London, France. She never was able to spell Cannes. Larry should have known this about his star.

You know how they say that "The Devil is in the details" well that saying fits in this picture. Look at the sleave of Lindsay's jacket, look to the left of the studs. What do you see?

For real to ROL, of course Lindsay is not happy with her choice of Dick. That is why there is Sam Ronson.

I can hardly wait until the whole Lohan family does the county fair circuit. Sam Ronson and the Deaf Tones will be the lead act.

Utter failure. No comparison. She can't pull it off and she's gonna sound like a fool trying to speak like her.

The wardrobe looks nothing like the original piece.

That green dress Liz wore is "Taylor" and more flattering. The green 80s prom dress that is straight off the rack is nasty. One thing Liz is known for is her taste in fashion and Jewelry. It's like putting Liz in a green sack and saying it's the same look... Meh!

Maybe she'll learn from this role. Liz has been ****-face drunk in front of the media and did it BEAMING with class.

Still think Hollywood Studios should go back to media control and yearly contracts. All the stars had way better handlers then and less fluff filled gossip.
