In case you hadn’t heard, Lindsay Lohan was selected to portray Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime movie “Liz And Dick”. We’ve heard reports that Lindsay was causing some trouble over the casting decisions about who would star opposite her in the movie. She wanted approval over who should be cast as Richard Burton in the flick.
Since we first heard of Lindsay’s search for Dick, there were numerous sources that said Lindsay was not happy with any of the casting director’s choices for the role. It was so bad that she even wanted to venture off to London in search of her Dick. Now, it appears her search is over. Her Dick is “True Blood” actor Grant Bowler AKA Cooter!
The movie’s producer, Larry Thompson said, “Richard Burton was quite older than Elizabeth Taylor. This is from a visual point of view just about equal to Liz and Dick. Visually speaking it is a perfect match.”
On Thursday, Lindsay and Grant met for the first time. The producer went on to reveal, “This morning we had Lindsay and Grant come into a room at Lifetime and the chemistry exploded. It was just Fourth of July firecrackers going off in the room. We knew from the chemistry that Liz and Dick live again.”
