Both in New York but neither having been invited to the 2012 Met Costume Institute Gala, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Lindsay Lohan were Lincoln Center for the A&E Networks 2012 Upfront. As we mentioned yesterday, Jennifer Love Hewitt’s The Client List has been renewed for a second season and as for Lindsay, she’ll be starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz and Dick, a movie about Elizabeth Taylor’s romance with Richard Burton. Naturally trying to hype Lindsay, Lifetime president Nancy Dubuc is quoted to saying that both Lindsay and Liz have much in common and it’s not simply just for ratings (even though they had to take out extra insurance) that Lindsay got cast:
“The creation of the paparazzi really came from the beginnings of the relationship with Liz Taylor and Richard Burton and clearly Lindsay has had to endure her own challenges when it comes to that and the attentions that she garners.
“I think that this role will be a really interesting journey for her and hopefully one that the audience will embrace wholeheartedly.” [Source]
