Stars competing for role as Liz Taylor in TV movie

17 Jan 2012
Both Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan are battling it out for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in a brand new movie. However, despite the fact that both actresses are household names (albeit for very different reasons these days), the movie isn't one that is set for the big screen, instead it will be screened on Lifetime.

Speaking to E! News, executive producer of the movie Larry Thompson said"It's a very serious selection! It's like casting Hollywood royalty. I've been talking to Lindsay Lohan directly, and with her reps, and have been in conversation with other actresses, including Megan Fox."

Given the high regard Taylor was held in within the showbiz circuit, it's not entirely surprising that interest in the role is high, but having names like Fox linked is a little unexpected.
