Lindsay Lohan has confirmed the long-standing rumor that she is cast as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's "Liz & Dick". Speaking in an interview with Matt Lauer, the 25-year-old singer/actress reveals that she'll start production for the TV movie soon.

"I've been doing tons of research," she says of her preparation to play the late "Cleopatra" beauty. "But I've always kind of researched her. She's always been a fascinating woman to me. So I'm really honored." She also promises she "will not let anyone down, especially myself."

While prepping for the biopic, Lohan is set to host "Saturday Night Live" this week. Words are, she may appear as the wife of Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, Callista, in a skit. However, Lohan's spokesman Steve Honig refused to comment on the news and NBC has not released a statement on the matter.

"SNL" episode featuring Lohan will air Saturday, March 3. Jack White has been booked as a musical guest.

I think she would be perfect for the role...she has the same body and face and just needs to work on the voice and BOOM...SHE HAS IT! Good Luck Lindsay!

YUK,YUK. Please isn't there anyone else? They need to find a total unknown and then the portrayal might have some credence. Dame Elizabeth must be spinning in her grave or maybe she wouldn't care anyway-although she did say, No one would play herself but herself-unfortunately that was before her sad passing. May you rest in peace Dame Elizabeth.
