However, this is Lifetime we’re talking about, and they are no shame to trolling for money. And what’s the best way they can do that? By casting Lindsay Lohan as one of the most beautiful actresses of all time and tossing in Cooter from True Blood (real name: Grant Bowler) as Richard Burton in their biopic Liz & Dick.
Yesterday, Lifetime tossed out the movie’s first teaser and to the surprise of no one, it looks like a hot ass mess. Note the far away shots of Blohan’s face, because by this point the meth and work she’s had done has fucked it up beyond repair. Her raspy, old woman cigarette smoking voice toward the end is a nice touch, as well.
I’ll be honest, though. The night this shit show premieres, I’m gonna be front and center on my couch with my two best friends, Vodka and Martini, cringing through every singular spectacularly horrible minute of this.
So here’s Blohan as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick.
