Lifetime's Liz & Dick premiered last night, and a whole lot of complaints (and jokes) were filed on Twitter as it aired. Most people felt apprehensive about the casting of Lindsay Lohan from the moment it was announced (but critics agree she is not the only part of the movie that didn't work). To be fair, Elizabeth Taylor is truly an icon, and it would be difficult for anyone to do her justice. Still, we doubt that will be the last Liz biopic, and it got us thinking about other actresses we'd like to see give it a shot.
One thing Natalie has going for her is that people rarely balk and say, "WHAT?!" when she's cast in a role. Acting since she was a child, Natalie has made pretty much every type of movie there is to make. She's done period pieces ("The Other Boleyn Girl") and achieved Oscar-worthy transformations ("Black Swan"). We're pretty sure there isn't much Natalie can't do, and taking on the role of Liz Taylor would be a great challenge for someone who has done it all!
