Lindsay Lohan will have a busy August

Lindsay Lohan once said that a film set is one of the safest places she can be, and it looks like that applies to late night talk shows, too.

The 27-year-old actress has lined up a temp job on E! following her latest stay in rehab. (TMZ reports that the star is officially free to go on Wednesday.)

Next Monday, August 5, Lohan will fill in for Chelsea Handler on "Chelsea Lately" as the night's guest host. She'll take over all of Handler's typical duties, including leading the roundtable chat and interviewing the night's celebrity guest.

The actress has been technically off the grid while serving her 90-day stint, but that hasn't slowed her down. In addition to her guest hosting gig, Lohan has lined up an interview and an eight-episode docu-series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN, the first of which will air in August.

On top of that, her movie "The Canyons" with the porn-star-next-door, James Deen, will debut in select theaters and as video on demand August 2.

Critics have shredded the project, which was written by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader. IndieWire gave it a D+, warning that "the best moment of 'The Canyons' arrives before any of its actors show up."

The Hollywood Reporter called it a "non-entertaining, pseudo-arty" film that's "far from the renegade, boundary-pushing, sexually explicit sensation that its makers have been suggesting." Instead, "The Canyons" "is a lame, one-dimensional and ultimately dreary look at peripheral Hollywood types not worth anyone's time either onscreen or in real life."

Even with such biting reviews, the New York Daily News acknowledges that the urge to watch "The Canyons" is still a strong one, fueled primarily by a desire to see what Lohan will do. And yet, while she does prove "watchable" as a struggling former actress involved with a dangerous small-time film producer, in the end "there is only boredom."

Yet one critic out there didn't think it was so bad. Variety's Scott Foundas found Lohan's presence in the film to be "fascinating," providing "one of those performances, like Marlon Brando’s in 'Last Tango in Paris,' that comes across as some uncanny conflagration of drama and autobiography."

"Wow," Lohan tweeted in response to Foundas' critique. "Humbled and feeling so much gratitude."

    Bret Easton Ellis hasn't written anything relevant since the 90s. Depressing since I loved all his stuff from back then. Please god someone take his twitter away.

  8. Have you tried hair ball medication?

    whenever my cat starts heaving and hacking, I give her hairball medication (it's a gel in a toothpaste tube) and that clears everything up.

    The carpet most definitely matches the drapes. Only she has hardwood floors with a runner instead of wall to wall carpeting.

    Just what she needs to stay on the straight-n-narrow...more celebritydom. Stay off the screen and it means one less druggie off the street and one more person staying alive on the roads.

      Snook > Lohan ? I respectfully disagree. The freckles alone, let alone her a ss tilts it in Lohan's favor.

      I've tried several times and have edited it, but it still won't post. I don't think it's offensive, especially compared to some of the other comments.

      If there are words that are potentially offensive, try spacing out the letters, or inserting dashes. Example: s e x, or s-x; can sometimes scramble words and the still make sense (FCUK), or just shorten them (FUK).

      You can post the word penis, but b o n e r has to be spaced out like that. Cootch / c o o t c h is hit or miss.

  23. Really...

    Why did the reporter refer to Lindsay Lohan as a "27 year old actress," when in reality she's a 27 year old has-been?

      My suggestion for a career revival is to focus on R-rated, boob-centric roles from here on out. Her funbags should be prominently displayed in every film, whether or not the nudity is integral to the plot. Boob-roles, Lindsay. That's your salvation.

      Her rack hit sagging territory years ago – pretty pathetic for someone in their 20's
