Lindsay Lohan's "Liz & Dick" Premieres on Lifetime: Will You Watch?
[Editor's Note: I spotted a Liz & Dick promo poster on Sunset Blvd. the other day and my mouth hung open. They're certainly not shying away from Lindsay's troubled image in promoting this film. Bitten and Bound has some interesting tidbits from the movie's producer, Larry Thompson, plus video. Will you watch tonight's premiere? --Morgan]

With the television film premiere of ‘Liz & Dick’ set to air Sunday night on Lifetime, Hollywood producer Larry A. Thompson talked candidly about the risks of casting Lindsay Lohan in the lead role.
At the time Thompson was negotiating with Lilo to portray the iconic Elizabeth Taylor, the actress was up to her ears in jail stints, rehab and probation issues.
He admits, “Making a movie with Lindsay Lohan is like jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet with a bolt of white nylon, a string, and a sewing machine. You’re building a parachute as fast as you can.”
