Can Lindsay Lohan pull off a convincing Elizabeth 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.

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.

Tirdad Derakhshani was born in Tehran, Iran, and raised in London and rural North Jersey, where he closely studied a theoretical, radical post-Hegelian approach to cow-tipping. He moved to Philadelphia in the mid-‘80s to seek enlightenment, and instead received a B.A. in literature at Penn. While pursuing doctoral studies in modern religious thought and philosophy, he worked at the Inquirer as a news clerk, researcher, editor, and entertainment writer.

He hopes SideShow will help citizens better understand the vicissitudes of the Consumerist-Military-Industrial-Infotainment Complex, or, in other words, why Britney Spears has a tendency to shave her head, Brangelina to adopt children, and Lindsay Lohan to crave imprisonment.
