Lilo has finally settled on an actor to play Richard Burton opposite her Elizabeth Taylor!
Although not an A-list actor, New Zealander and True Blood biker-werewolf Grant Bowler wowed the biopic's execs during a recent reading with Lindsay Lohan.
Executive producer Larry A. Thompson expressed:
“The chemistry erupted in the room… Grant will add gravitas to our couple and bring to life one of the greatest actors who has ever lived. Burton was a Welsh poet, a rascal, and a man’s man, who swept Elizabeth Taylor off her feet and flew her so close to the sun that they both exploded into stardust that still lights up Hollywood.”
Wunderbar! We are thrilled Lilo found herself a Dick - and only 10 days before production is supposed to start!
Please, please, please commit Linds! No diva behavior from his point forward… cool?
