Perhaps instead of posing in a Marilyn Monroe-inspired shoot for Playboy, Lindsay Lohan should've been working on her Elizabeth Taylor portrayal.
Reports are circulating that the embattled actress may have the opportunity to play the Hollywood legend on TV.
Deadline has heard that Lohan, 25, is in "early talks" to play Dame Taylor in a Lifetime original movie called "Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story."
The TV film will follow the epic, highly publicized romance between Taylor and actor Richard Burton, and would be written by "Temple Grandin" scribe Christopher Monger.
Lindsay's rep, however, is staying quiet on the reports. He tells CNN in a statement, "We're not commenting on hearsay or comments made by unnamed sources.”
What do you think - can you picture Lindsay as Elizabeth Taylor?
