Well, it’s finally here—after all the scandals, the public flame-outs, the embarrassing reveals, the posing for Playboy, the car accidents, the arrests, the plastic surgery, the dwindling film roles—the public persona of Lindsay Lohan has finally struck its nadir. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you: Lindsay Lohan starring in a Lifetime original movie called Liz and Dick. Behold its awful goodness.
While we’ve known for some time that the physical embodiment of human trainwreck-ery made into flesh (also known in some circles as “Lindsay Lohan”) was intermittently working on a Lifetime original film designed to cash in on the death of Elizabeth Taylor, we just kind of assumed it was one of those urban legends, like the Loch Ness Monster or Shia LaBeouf’s talent—it’s something you hear about, but you know you’ll never see any real evidence that it actually exists. It’s just too ridiculous.
And then, boom, a trailer hits the internet featuring Lindsay Lohan doing all manner of Lindsay Lohan things (drinking, smoking, bloating) but with a black wig on so that means she’s totally Elizabeth Taylor, you guys. Anyway, trailer:
And thus, as it was foretold in ancient prophecies, we now view the final trajectory of this fallen starlet’s tragic arc: slapping a wig and some heavy makeup on in order to be used by the freaking Lifetime Network in a desperate bid for ratings and attention. I think I saw it written on an ancient scroll somewhere. Or it might have been an episode of South Park, I can’t remember.
Liz and Dick will premiere on Lifetime in November.
What do you think of the trailer?
