As of last week we weren’t sure if Lindsay Lohan was going to get the part… but it’s official!

Lifetime TV executives confirm Lindsay Lohan will play Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming film about her life.

Robert Sharenow, EVP of Programming for Lifetime, said “We are thrilled Lindsay will portray beloved Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor, she is one of the rare actresses who possesses the talent, beauty and intrigue to capture the spirit of such a provocative icon.”

Lindsay says she is “honored” to play her… Hopefully she stays out of trouble long enough to get the movie made!
