LiLo won't be too thrilled about her new competition!

Megan Fox has joined the fray for Lifetime's biopic on Liz Taylor. Lifetime producer Larry Thompson commented on his search:

I've been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversations with other actresses, including Megan Fox.

It's a very serious selection. It's like casting for Hollywood royalty.

While Linds is stil one of the frontrunners, her probation status is not helping her cause, which is set to end in March.

So who would U rather see as the beautiful Liz. LiLo or Megz?

    Two worthless actresses…

    Miss Taylor turns in her grave.



  2. 2

    None of those two! Lilo is a junkie and Megan is beautiful but cannot act but I think Megan looks more like young Liz. But then I remember it's Lifetime! Lol… Megan all the way!



  3. 3

    Megan Fox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Perfect choice! (Didn't Elizabeth Taylor like Megan Fox or say she was one to watch a few years back?)



  4. 4

    For those old enough to remember, there has already been a biopic made about Liz. Sherilyn Fenn played her in a 1995 tv movie. So, why make another one, and pick someone who looks nothing like her. Sherilyn looked more like her than these two



  5. 5

    Much better choice. at least Megan has true beauty.



  6. 6

    id rather have megan do liz taylor than lindsay anyday.



  7. 7

    I swear I won't watch if this nasty drug addict with rotten teeth is in it. Megan all the way, I'd love that.



  8. 8

    mEGAN fOX…sHE LOOKS MUCH BETTER THAN lILO AND i CAN SEE HER IN MAKEUP AS lIZ. lILO IS A LOSER. sHE CAN PLAY lIZ'S DEAD BODY. SHE'D BE PERFECT!!!



  9. 9

    neither of these too. I like megan but she doesn't look like Dame Elizabeth at all, she's just a brunette and that's all. And Lilo…. I used to be a fan but pleaaaazzzzz what the hell did you do to your face!!! those lips are awful!!! you don't deserved to play Elizabeth Taylor anymore girl!



  10. 10

    They should find an unknown. Lohan is too big of a risk, and Fox has limited acting skills.



  11. 11

    lindsey lohan looks freek. her face is melting. megan a better comedic actress



  12. 12

    Megan Fox > Lindsay Lohan.



  13. 13

    Good lord, why punish a dead woman? Megan is gorgous but not that great of an actress and Lindsay is just one unending disaster, and in my opinion, also not that talented. Although truth be told if it does come down to the two of them, I'd rather they pick Megan, at least you know with Megan the movie will actually get done without major drama.

    I thought you said Lindsey was committed? The only thing w/ Megan is the acting of course, and ET was such a natural beauty and Megan face has been so altered which is great and beautiful, but not for LIZ ) ;



  15. 15

    Megan is actually a great actress, don't judge her by Transformers. Plenty major actors and actresses who have worked with her or auditioned with her have said she's excellent and under-valued. LET'S GO WITH MEGAN!!!!!! If Megan doesn't get this, she'll probably get the theatrical. lol



  16. 16

    your time frame is a little warped there PEEREX. of these 2 megan would be better, not good, but better. Can HOHAN even be insured/bonded??? Insurance people are pretty serious about druck addicts. 1,000,000 of coverage would likely go for about 25% premium for this skank.



  17. 17

    Taylor would be rolling over in her grave that these losers are even being considered. I am sure KArtrashian's media whore family will try to get one of them in that rold. Kim could do it, she is a big star in movies too! ROFL!!! Porn movies vs playing Elizabeth Taylor. I am sure she can do it. Kim can do everything! VOMIT!



  18. 18

    based on looks alone, Megan Fox looks more like Elizabeth Taylor. I would give her the role over Lindsay in a heartbeat. I actually think Megan is a good actress, and given the right role, she will shine.



  19. 19

    Re: rosebud99 – I agree, an unknown or even a lesser known actress would be better. Lindsay is cute (at best) Megan is pretty (when she doesn't mess with her face) but young Liz Taylor was GORGEOUS.

    The bigger problem is, why is Lifetime the network doing this movie. Liz is a Hollywood legend and film about her should be a major motion picture. Hell, it should at least be a miniseries on HBO! I have nothing against Lifetime, but let's face it, most of us only watch Lifetime movies on a rainy saturday, when we are on our periods, and don't feel like leaving bed.



  20. 20

    THEY BOTH LOOK PLASTIC!



  21. 21

    As far as looks go, Megan is the better pick but SHE CAN NOT ACT! They are both absolutely TERRIBLE choices for Liz! It would be a disgrace to Liz to have either of these 2 play her!



  22. 22

    both would make for TERRIBLE casting. Ugh Megan Fox cannot act, she just looks so void in the eyes and as we have seen is an ungrateful twit, and no one can insure Lindsay Lohan, and she just is not what it is, they should have some break out star do it, I am sure there are so many undiscovered talents out there that would be amazing for this role. these two are just not it.



  23. 23

    Re: Valentina – Your lie stinks..



  24. 24

    I've seen Megan out of transformers, and a lot of people agree that she can't act for shit. Especially with the whole stank/bitchy expression she always seems to sport on her face when she's sometimes reading her lines. It's not the good award winning bitchy either, it's more of the juvenile stanky expression of i-want-to-punch-this-girl-in-her-face kind of bitchy.
    Megan has the looks for Liz. But not the acting.
    Camille Belle has a bit of the looks and a bit of the acting.
    Lindsay has half the acting, but none of the looks.
    Kate has the acting, but not the looks of Liz.
    I say they keep looking until they find their "It" girl.
    Then again it's a lifetime movie, and i'm not exactly a fan of Liz taylor, so they can do whatever they want with it.



  25. 25

    Pre Transformers Megan was actuarially very good on Hope & Faith. She can act. She would be my choice. I should hate to see the memory of our Liz, the last star, denigrated by having Lohan attempt to portray her.



  26. 26

    The rumor about Lindsay being in it has already been shot down. At no point was she even being considered for the role. All her people do is feed everyone a bunch of BS. Larry may have spoken to her/her people, but that's because they contacted him, not the other way around. She can't act, she looks like she's in her late 40's, & no one will insure her. What are the chances of her ever working again? Slim to none, I'd say.



  27. 27

    I bet Kimmie Cakes wished she got asked for the part, after all she does think she is Elizabeth Taylor.



  28. 28

    Elizabeth Taylor did not have a skinny ugly neck like Megan. She was not a lollipop head. They mind as well through that porn star Kim Kardasian in the mix.

    That's just insulting to think that two of the worst actresses in all of history would even be CONSIDERED to play such a classic legend!! I could cry!



  30. 30

    If i had to choose, it would probably be lindsay. Comparing megan to lindsays performances before she went downhill lindsay was the better actress..



  31. 31

    How unsuitable for these two to be considered to portray a woman like Elizabeth Taylor. No one in the industry takes them seriously nor their acting skills, to say the least. There are better, more suitable (aesthetically/ talented) women in the business then these two.



  32. 32

    will be interesting to see who gets the role in the end
    definitely should go to Lindsay Lohan
    there are porbably some relatively unknown actresses who have tons of Broadway experience who would be up to the role and they would disappear into the role…without the baggage that someone like Lindsay brings
    you can't help but look at Lindsay and think drama- drugs-booze-shop lifting-court etc.
    she will never be able to disappear into the character because of that



  33. 33

    Re: *Sloane
    my sentence shoould have read
    "definitely should NOT go to Lindsay"
    lucky I reread what I wrote- horrified that I made that error!



  34. 34

    I like lindsay but i would much preffer megan fox, she's is vivacious and has beauty so definitely megan.



  35. 35

    Am I the only one who cares that neither of these girls are good enough actresses to play Liz. I mean Elizabeth Taylor is STILL the quintessential Cleopatra after allll these years. Don't get me wrong, I think Megan Fox is delectable and does a crackerjack job as the hott girl or the bad girl, but I don't know about this. Lindsey Lohan needs to get her life together and do some minor roles to work her way up. I think there are some ladies a bit older than Foxy and Lilo (who are both my age) who'd do just fine.

    Then again as I just read below, this is apparently a Lifetime original? In that case Megan Fox would do.



  36. 36

    Megan all the way….I would not waste my time watching LiLo…

    Neither rings the bell for this. They'd better keep looking.



  38. 38

    Re: Dick Gozinya – She was also in confessions with Lindsay (i'm pretty sure it was pre-transformers), and she sucked in it…



  39. 39

    Can't they ask Dita Von Teese or someone? Neither Lohan nor Megan F. would do this justice. This has got to be some sort of rumor. No producer in their right mind would even consider LL after researching her lack of popularity. Plus who gets a job when they've been in so much legal trouble? This is just more porky pies. You know British for bull sh*t stories.



  40. 40

    Re: caitinwonderland666 – I'm with you. Elizabeth Taylor was a brilliant actress. I mean she was fantastic in Butterfield 8, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cleopatra, Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf, I could go on and on but you get the point. Good God, to consider someone like Lindsay who's done nothing worth mentioning in her career, who is a total washed out junkie, who doesn't have one fraction of the talent that Elizabeth Taylor has is disgusting to me. At least Megan Fox has the looks and isn't on every kind of drug from here to the coast. To have Lohan play Liz is a spit in the face of all Elizabeth Taylor fans.



  41. 41

    LINDSAY ! Just because she has Dui's does not take away from her Talent ! Who in Hollywood has not been linked to drugs etc Wow what a shocker .
    May Lindsay get the part and , nail it and get an award for it ! OMG what HATERS !



  42. 42

    Neither. Lindsay looks terrible in that picture- did she get more plastic surgery done? And Megan Fox has also gotten a huge amount of plastic surgery done. An unknown that would look more similar to Elizabeth Taylor would be the best option.



  43. 43

    megan fox hands down!



  44. 44

    give it to megan, lohan's a mess
