Entertainment news reveals that LINDSAY LOHAN‘s leading man in the upcoming ELIZABETH TAYLOR Lifetime biopic is “Blue Heelers” star, GRANT BOWLER.
Lindsay has been made to play the role of the great Liz Taylor for her much-awaited film story, “Liz and Dick“—no matter how much other people would like to deny it—but the spot for the actor who gets to play the legendary Hollywood actress’ mate, Richard Burton, has been questioned for weeks…
…until now, because Grant Bowler, who starred in ”Blue Heelers,” the third season of “True Blood” and is currently the host of “The Amazing Race Australia,” has reportedly been chosen for the coveted role.
We know what you’re thinking… he seems too old to be starring as Lindsay‘s (Taylor‘s) man—18 whole years, in fact!—but the film’s producer, Larry Thompson, defends the choice to E! News:
“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.”
Thompson even promises that there will be a lot of steamy scenes for the Linds and the hunky werewolf from “True Blood.” After all, they have really strong chemistry. He explains:
“We had seen him [Bowler] on tape and liked him but wanted to confirm the chemistry between the two. But this morning we had Lindsay and Grant come into a room at Lifetime and the chemistry exploded. It’s Fourth of July firecrackers going off in the room. We knew from the chemistry that Liz and Dick live again. Chemistry means movie magic for sex.”
The director added:
“This movie will definitely have as much sex as Lifetime will allow.”
So Lindsay gets to hook up with an older guy on screen—as Liz, of course.
Do you think Bowler looks perfect for the role or is this just gross?
