Lindsay Lohan

Danny McBride Wants YOU!

Lindsay Lohan
was such a pro on the set of "Eastbound & Down" ... its star Danny McBride wants to take her talents with him ... to a show he's developing for HBO.

Sources close to LL tell TMZ ... while guest starring on "E&D" Danny -- a.k.a. Kenny Powers -- and LiLo really hit it off. Danny was so impressed with her work he had several serious talks with her on set about a new show. He wants her to star in it.

We're told the show is being developed by McBride and his producing partner Jody Hill. It will be in the same comedic vein as "Eastbound" ... but revolve around a high school.

Our sources say Lindsay loves the idea and is hoping it works out.

A gig like this could help erase LiLo's last few performances -- "The Canyons" and "Liz & Dick" -- and put her back on track to having a real career.

ONTD has some good comments...

"Makes me laugh when people pretend she's so talented."
"mte. She was never more than an average actress at best. She can't even play a recovering addict convincingly."

ALL these movers and shakers get a taste of Lohan and they can't wait to star her in something. Then reality sets in and nothing ends up happening. These people are very slow learners. Lohan can't keep up the "I'm a professional actress" facade forever. Eventually her real personality comes through and people are shocked and stunned. Why? Don't they read TMZ and the other ragmag sites?

I wonder when these dum-dums in Hollywood who insist on giving her a chance will ever learn? She is bad for business. In fact, she is just bad. Not only professionally, but personally too. If you didn't know that, then you must be living under a giant meth rock.

She's had way too much botox to pass as a high school student. So if that will be her character, it won't work, imo. If it's Adult Ed, that's a different story I guess lol. If she has any shot of making a career for herself ("comeback" isn't the correct term for poor excuse of film work) she'll do best in the comedy genre. That I do believe. Because she just can't cut it as a serious actress - Liz & Dick proved that best.

Lindsay, I'm guessing you do visit TMZ so just want to say that America loves a good up from the ashes story. Good luck, young lady.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

Oh, how HILARIOUS, sounds like RW is again playing on ROL, this time not as 'EarthQUACKER' but as 'Chad' on the Jane Lynch thread. For those who love watching a NITWIT debate, have at it . . .

PSSST: SOMEONE has MAJOR misogynistic women 'issues'. . . .

What's with the kneejerk megativity? She was great in Canyons! Even those hated the movie liked her.
