‘Liz & Dick’ trailer released: Watch Lindsay Lohan do her best Elizabeth Taylor

Yahoo Celebrity

The moment is here: We get to finally see how Lindsay Lohan does as the iconic Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime made-for-TV movie, “Liz & Dick.” On Thursday, the network unveiled a 31-second trailer of the highly-anticipated release – but it hardly gives much of a glimpse at the troubled star’s cinematic comeback.

The brief clip is mostly just snapshots of Lohan as Taylor (Grant Bowler plays her on-and-off lover, Richard Burton) with words like “infamous” and “scandalous” stamped onto them, as Alex Clare’s “Too Close” (you know, that song from the Microsoft commercials) plays. Lohan, 26, says a total of nine words in the trailer … is that a clue as to how she performs in the movie?

But she does have a lot to say about that alleged hit-and-run she was arrested for in the early hours of Wednesday morning in New York City. Lohan was taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. as she left the Dream Hotel, two hours after a man claims she struck him with the Porsche she was driving … and then just kept on going. Although there has been conflicting reports about whether or not Lohan actually made contact with the man, the actress has a notion as to why she was arrested, even if it doesn’t really make sense.

“A paparazzi sat on the hood of my friends car and they arrested me,” Lohan tells HollywoodLife.com. “It’s so absurd, completely unfair and unjust. It’s just because it’s me – it’s unfortunate.”
