In case you forgot, Lohan takes on the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic, and you can't make a movie about that actress without including "Cleopatra." Still regarded as one of the most expensive and tortuous productions of all time, the making of the movie was tabloid manna from heaven, as Taylor and Richard Burton (played by Grant Bowler) began a torrid affair that spilled out very publicly, and combined with many other factors, caused delays on the film. The movie went well over schedule, taking nearly a full year to shoot. But somehow, this still image makes the sumptuous 20th Century Fox film look pretty cheap. But hey, it's Lohan as Taylor as Cleoptra – that is something, we suppose. Meanwhile the other pics show Taylor and Burton in happier times, with one more of the actress shielding herself from the cameras. Something Lohan is familiar with.
No word yet on when this will air on Lifetime, but when we find out, we'll be sure to let you know so you can set your DVRs.
