Lindsay Lohan has a trio of handsome gents to choose from to play Richard Burton opposite her in her upcoming Lifetime Elizabeth Taylor biopic. And she doesn’t like any of them.
According to RadarOnline, the TV movie has a number of actors on the shortlist to play Elizabeth Taylor’s tempestuous love interest, Richard Burton, including Gossip Girl’s Matthew Settle, CSI’s Craig Robert Young, and Sean Maguire. But Lindsay isn’t convinced that any of them are right for the role.
"Lindsay declared that none of the actors were the right fit and that she wanted to go to London to look for a possible Burton actor there," a source said. "Lindsay is being an absolute nightmare about who should play Burton. She believes Matthew Settle is too old to play the role, and she wants a major A-list star to be her co-star. However, her salary for the role took up a major portion of the budget, and the Burton gig will likely only pay $200k, max."
Producers want to keep LiLo happy, but they don’t actually need her go-ahead on casting decisions — but it sounds like this won’t be the last battle they fight with their star. After she spent a night partying with Barron Hilton, Paris Hilton, and Brandon Davis, the production is reportedly worried that she’ll relapse into her wild ways.
