Yesterday in a press release, it became official that Lindsay Lohan would be playing a young Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime biopic, ‘Liz & Dick‘. Of course given Lohan’s less than favorable real life drama that has played out in the media over the last several years, some are skeptical that she is up for the job or even capable of pulling it off.
One of these people is Rosie O’Donnell. Perhaps bitter that her show was canceled and people like Lohan are getting new opportunities, O’Donnell was on ‘Today‘ with Matt Lauer, Donny Deutsch, and Star Jones and felt very strongly that Lindsay Lohan was “not capable” of this role. “She’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including ‘SNL.’ She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she’s not in a place to work.” She continued, “I feel sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of time away… I don’t think she’s right for the role, and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.”
Watch the segment on ‘Today’ below and share your thoughts on Lindsay taking on this notable role.
