Who would be a better fit to play Elizabeth Taylor than Lindsay Lohan?

Obvious answer is "anyone", but would still be interesting to hear others' ideas. Maybe Camilla Belle? She could use a career picker-upper, and she definitely looks the part.

Here's the original article about Lindsay potentially playing her in a new Lifetime movie:

I saw this and my first reaction was this has got to be a joke. I totally agree that anyone would be better.

My first thought was slap a wig on Amanda Seyfried, but how about Anne Hathaway?

This may be a bit "out of the box", but for some reason, I think Annie from community would be great; of course, that's just me selfishly wanting to see more of Alison Brie...

Hmm Seyfried does have those big eyes and similar bone structure, though it's easier to picture Hathaway doing it. At the very least, both are good actresses. Oh, in case you hadn't heard, Megan Fox is now reportedly in contention for the role: http://www.hitfix.com/articles/megan-fox-competing-with-lindsay-lohan-for-role-of-elizabeth-taylor Hmm...

It is out of the box, but hey, you just never know. Now that you mention it, she actually does look quite a bit like her!

Neither. They're both disgusting, used-up skanks.

I saw that article. It seems like a headline from The Onion. I am totally astounded that the name of the movie is "Liz and Dick." This is the best thing to happen to late night comedy writers is a long time.

Keep in mind that this is a Lifetime movie. No stars with real film careers would do this. It is being touted as a triumph for Lindsay (entirely by her camp) because no one wants to make a movie with her and she is un-insurable. Hard to believe a Lifetime movie would be a comeback for anybody, no?

So who would actually be at a point where they would do it?
