Rosie O'Donnell: Lindsay Lohan "Not Capable" Of Playing Elizabeth Taylor
Rosie O'Donnell certainly won't be receiving any gift baskets from the Lohan family anytime soon!
Rosie sat alongside Donny Deutsch and Star Jones this morning during a segment of Today's Professionals for an outspoken rant about all of today's biggest headlines.
One topic broached? Lindsay Lohan's recent casting as Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz and Dick.
"I feel very sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of help," Rosie said. "She needs time away. I don’t think she’s right for the role, and I don’t think she’s capable at this point of doing what’s needed to portray that character."
Rosie sniped that Lindsay wasn't a good SNL host and that she hasn't lived up to expectations in anything recently. Donny, on the flipside, thought the casting was perfect — even going so far as to call Lindsay this generation's Elizabeth Taylor.
"You're out of your mind," Rosie fired back, saying that Lindsay hasn't acted well since she was 16. "You're a crackhead."
While both Star and Donny seemed to think Lindsay's "trainwreck" persona would attract viewers to the TV film, Rosie felt that casting Lindsay wouldn't arouse enough interest.
Do you think Lindsay is a good fit to play Elizabeth Taylor?
