Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has signed on with Lifetime to portray Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor in a made-for-TV movie called Liz and Dick.

The biopic is called Liz and Dick and Lohan will play the role of a young Liz Taylor. Production will commence in late March when Lindsay is off probation.
Lohan is taking the role VERY seriously – one might even call it an obsession the way she is studying up on Taylor.
According to sources, Lohan is working hard to recreate Taylor’s speech, look, and mannerisms by constantly watching old Taylor movies and interviews.
Also, Lifetime has driven a hard bargain for Lohan to play in this role.
She must complete her probation requirements BEFORE they can begin filming, which Lindsay has vowed to do.
