| Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm FlickersElizabeth TaylorHelena Bonham Carter

Is it time for a reboot already!?

Helena Bonham Carter apparently thinks so because she's portraying Elizabeth Taylor for the BBC in another biopic about her tumultuous relationship with Richard Burton!, and we have the footage that proves it!!!!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer for Burton and Taylor (above)!

Whoa!! Intense!!

We love us some Lindsay Lohan, but, let's face it, Liz & Dick was a debacle wrapped in a disaster covered in melted turds!!!

Plus, if there's one gurl in the world who knows what it's like to bang a dude with the last name Burton, it's HBC! She's been dating director Tim Burton since 2001!

Burton and Taylor, which also stars The Wire's Dominic West, premieres October 16th on BBC America.

Matt Bomer Cast As Montgomery Clift In Biopic!

| Filed under: Film FlickersElizabeth TaylorMatt Bomer

matt bomer montgomery clift biopic casting monty clift movie

Matt Bomer fans may want the seksi star won't be in 50 Shades Of Grey, but it looks like they're going to have to settle for black and white.

The Magic Mike star will be fulfilling a personal dream to portray actor Montgomery Clift! He told GQ Italia last year:

"I would love to do a Montgomery Clift biopic. I would love to just keep working with really great directors who really inspire me."

And now it's coming true! Matt has been cast in the title role of Monty Clift, the story of the affair between Montgomery and his A Place In The Sun costar Elizabeth Taylor!

After Lindsay Lohan and Helena Bonham Carter, who will be playing his Liz? We can't wait to find out!

But she better be good- because Matt is the spitting image of the iconic Montgomery!

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) of both actors in their prime.

Helena Bonham Carter Gives Us Her Best Liz Taylor In Burton And Taylor Trailer! Watch It HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsElizabeth TaylorHelena Bonham Carter

Here we go again!

We already got a taste of Elizabeth Taylor's life with Richard Burton when Lindsay Lohan did her thing in Liz & Dick, but now we're getting some more goodness with Helena Bonham Carter taking on the challenge of portraying the legendary actress.

We showed you the first pic of Helena as Liz in Burton and Taylor, but now we're getting a sneak peek of the action to come!

Starring alongside Dominic West as Richard, these two certainly bring a very different energy to the roles.

We're not going to call which will be better just yet since we haven't seen the BBC TV movie, but we have our suspicions, and it ain't looking good for LiLo!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and tell us which you think will be better!

You know Debbie Reynolds. She’s the one Lindsay Lohan didn’t play in Liz & Dick. (Small favors, Debs!!!)

Debbie was America’s Jen Aniston-level sweetheart in the 1950s, but, sadly, her husband, ladies’ man singer Eddie Fisher, who died in 2010, didn’t feel the same, leaving Debbie for the late femme fatale Elizabeth Taylor — the Angelina Jolie before Angelina Jolie.

While promoting her current film, HBO's Behind the Candelabra, Debbie explained:

Helena Bonham Carter Trumps Lindsay Lohan In Burton And Taylor! See First Pic HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsLindsay LohanFilm FlickersElizabeth TaylorHelena Bonham Carter

helena bonham carter dominic west bbc america burton and taylor first look

Lindsay Lohan gave us a performance that was AH-MAZING for all the wrong reasons in Lifetime's epic Liz & Dick!

But BBC America thinks they can do a classier job capturing the magic of Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor with their upcoming Burton and Taylor!

This time, Helena Bonham Carter and The Wire's Dominic West will play the ultimate on-again, off-agains, and they've got the makeup to prove it!

We think Helena looks incredible! This might also be the first time since she married Tim Burton that we've seen her without her kooky goth look! She may be the only actress who has to tone down the eyeliner for the Cleopatra scenes! LOLz!

One serious question though- why not Johnny Depp for Richard Burton? He loves working with Helena! Sure, he doesn't look anything like him, but come on! Johnny Depp!

What do U think? Helena or Lindsay??

EXCLUSIVE! Lindsay Lohan Admits Press On Dick Drove Her Nuts! See The Vid HERE!

| Filed under: TV NewsLindsay LohanExclusives!Film FlickersElizabeth Taylor

By almost any measurable metric, Lifetime's Liz & Dick was an utter disaster!

Ratings were low, critical response was unflattering, and most viewers were displeased with Lindsay Lohan's uninspired portrayal of glorious film goddess Elizabeth Taylor!

That isn't to say LiLo didn't learn a few things playing the oft-married celeb, however!!

In fact, she thinks the two of them had a ton in common, especially as far as living a life in the limelight is concerned!

Ch-ch-check out Lindz comparing herself to Liz in a DVD special feature sneak-peek, given EXCLUSIVELY to us (above)!!

In a rare moment of unscripted candor, the Mean Girls star opened up about how incessant media attention drives even the most secure of celebs a tad bit wacky!!

Hmm, maybe this mandatory stint at Betty Ford (and away from media scrutiny) really will help her refocus on what matters!

The Liz & Dick DVD hits shelves on May 14!

Lindsay Lohan Scrambles To Make Plea Deal Happen Before Court Hearing!

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal MattersElizabeth Taylor

Lindsay Lohan

Let's hope Mark Heller is really the genius Lindsay Lohan thinks he is!

In a last-ditch effort to get the best plea deal possible for lying to the cops, Linds is meeting with her lawyer before she faces the jury in less than two weeks!

Everyone from LiLo's bodyguard to ex-assistant has been subpoenaed against her, but Mark apparently still thinks they have a shot at making a deal as good as a free meal.

A source explained:

“Los Angeles City Attorney Terry White has told Lindsay’s lawyer, Mark Heller, he would be willing to meet with her before the trial is scheduled to begin on March 18. Both sides are working towards hammering out a plea deal in the case, but as of right now, the possibility still exists any deal could include her going to rehab. Lindsay strongly feels that if she is able to talk to the prosecutor he will be able to see that she doesn’t need to enter a treatment facility. However, White is a respected and smart prosecutor, and he won’t be influenced by Lindsay’s celebrity status. He is treating her as he would any other defendant.”

Hopefully she'll put on her best performance yet during that plea deal, because gurlfriend is going to need it if she hopes to stay out of jail and rehab!

We would take whatever that prosecutor hands out, even if it is a stint in rehab!

On the slight chance that Linds does win in court, she could still face up to 245 days in the slammer for violating probation in that necklace theft incident.

Hopefully she didn't piss off Elizabeth Taylor's ghost too much, because she going to need all the supernatural help she can get!
