From Playboy to A Place in the Sun Lindsay Lohan is in talks to play Elizabeth Taylor on the small screen
She recently vamped it up as Marilyn Monroe in a steamy shoot for Playboy magazine, and now Lindsay Lohan is moving on to another screen icon.
The troubled starlet,25, may be morphing in to none other than Elizabeth Taylor.
She is in early talks to play Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie based on the recently deceased actress' life.

Here's trouble: The 25-year-old starlet actually has many similarities to the deceased icon
According to Deadline.com, Lindsay has been discussed to play the starring role in Elizabeth & Richard: A Love Story.
It will chronicle the ongoing love affair between Taylor and actor Richard Burton.
Their romance was the most highly publicised and notorious love affair of its time; Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt might be their modern-day equivalent.
The made-for-TV movie, produced by Larry Thompson, was originally announced as part of Lifetime's 2011-12 development slate.
Linsday's career, which seemed so promising from her early days as a child star in films like Freaky Friday and The Parent Trap, has stalled as of late.
She has become more known for her off-screen antics, including various stints in jail and rehab.
However, a 2004 Slate story suggests that the starlet may, in fact, be the perfect person to play Taylor.
It reads: 'Both had domineering stage mothers, little semblance of a real childhood, fame from a young age, substance abuse issues, public emotional outpourings, and copious amounts of tabloid drama.'
The actress died of heart failure at the age of 79 on March 23, 2011.
