Sneak peak at Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor

Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor?

We cringed when we first heard that cable channel Lifetime had hired LiLo to play Liz in the upcoming biopic, Liz & Dick.

Can Lindsay Lohan pull off a convincing Elizabeth Taylor?

We still cringe.

Could LiLo ever match Liz’ emotional explosion opposite Montgomery Clift in the psychiatric hospital scene from Suddenly Las Summer?

Could LiLo –  who suffers from the hot-young-American-girl-syndrome: Hyper-aware of her body, willing to use it as a tool for distanced, visual seduction, but totally uncomfortable inhabiting herself – ever replicate Liz’ lewd, yet moving sexual desperation opposite a glacial Marlon Brando in Reflections in a Golden Eye?

In a word, no.

We cringed when we got an email today from Lifetime containing a sneak peak photos from the biopic shoot: One of LiLo made up as Liz, a second of Grant Bowler, as Richard Burton, Liz’ on-off-on-again-off-again-on&on-again-off&off-again real-life lover, wife, hater, friend, enemy.
