Lindsay Lohan is ready for her close-up as Elizabeth Taylor!
Lifetime's Taylor biopic, Liz & Dick, doesn't premiere until November, but the network released a sneak peek poster on Wednesday that features leading lady Lohan as the iconic film star.
Clad in a black cocktail dress and dripping in Taylor's signature diamonds, Lohan — sporting a jet black dolled up 'do — poses seductively as phrases including "provocative," "tabloid front page," "child star" and "scandal" surround her.
Liz & Dick marks the 26-year-old troubled star's first acting project since 2009. In the made-for-TV movie, Lohan appears opposite Grant Bowler, who stars as Taylor's former husband Richard Burton (whom Taylor married and famously divorced twice among her seven other marriages!). "I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor," Lohan said in a statement to Us Weekly in April of the late actress, who passed away in March 2011 at age 79. "She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role."
Also on Wednesday, news broke that Lohan was arrested in New York City for leaving the scene of an accident in which she bumped into a pedestrian. Lohan was behind the wheel of her Porsche Cayenne (with her manager and a male pal) in an alleyway near the Dream and Maritime Hotels in NYC's Meatpacking District around 1 a.m. "While driving down the alley, she was trying to get people to step aside by flashing her lights," NYPD tell Us. "Everyone moved except one person. The individual is claiming a knee injury and was taken to Bellevue Hospital."
Because this particular crime was a misdemeanor, Lohan was released without bail. Alcohol was not involved in the incident, according to police documents.
