Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, wouldn’t be much without a Dick. Luckily, executive producer Larry A. Thompson has announced that they’ve found her leading man: former True Blood guest star Grant Bowler. With shooting due to begin on June 4, they certainly cut it close!

Thompson tells Deadline that they auditioned actors all over the world before finally finding Grant. They made their decision after a reading with Lindsay, which apparently was fantastic. “The chemistry erupted in the room,” explains Thompson.

Although Lindsay had originally commented on how much Gerard Butler looks like film legend Richard Burton, Grant seems like a good fit. Besides, we didn’t really expect that to happen.
