Check Out The “Provocative” New Poster For Lifetime’s Original Film ‘Liz & Dick’

Controversial. Child Star. Scandal. Tabloid Front Page.

Those are just a few of the words splashed across the poster for Lifetime’s original film Liz & Dick, a biopic that explores the tumultuous love affair between iconic actors Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. As much as those words apply to Taylor, they also apply to Lindsay Lohan, who will be portraying Taylor on the small screen.

Lohan is looking sultry and very Taylor-esque on the poster thanks to her perfectly coiffed dark hair and rose red lips, fingernails and jewelry. If the film is a hit for her, it could finally return the conversation to her acting and move it away from the real life drama that has overshadowed her career in recent years.

Although not pictured on the poster, the Burton to Lohan’s Taylor will be played by Grant Bowler, who is a familiar face to TV fans, as he has appeared on everything from Lost to True Blood in recent years. If you can’t wait to see the duo together, take a look at the previously released cast photos.

Liz & Dick will premiere November 2012 on Lifetime.

Do you think Lohan will do Taylor justice?
