Here's Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor

It was announced a few weeks ago that Lindsay Lohan would be playing actress Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime biopic Liz & Dick—and today, we got a peek at what's to come.

In this image released by Lifetime, LiLo looks startlingly like the late screen legend as she nuzzles True Blood's Grant Bowler, who will play Taylor's two-time husband Richard Burton. Hopefully it isn't just the dramatic eye makeup and beauty mark that has Lohan so in character—despite her various personal troubles over the years, we've been rooting for an onscreen comeback that rivals her infamous Mean Girls performance.

What do you make of Lindsay's new role—does she have what it takes to embody Liz's infinite glamour? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned for more pictures...we can't wait to see the wardrobe for this one.
