Soon after news broke that Lindsay Lohan will host “Saturday Night Live,” as previously reported, word surfaced that she has landed the role of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s upcoming TV movie “Liz and Dick,” Access Hollywood reports.
But there’s one catch, according to the report: Lohan has to stay out of legal trouble. The actress is due back in court Wednesday as her probation review continues. She has been doing well with it lately, and her deal with Lifetime reportedly stipulates that she has to continue to do so.
The Lifetime project, which has been in development since May 2011, will be overseen by producer Larry Thompson, the story reports.
The report notes that Lohan “was last seen on the big screen in ‘Machete’ in 2010 and on the small screen in 2009’s TV movie ‘Labor Pains.’”
