They were the Brangelina of their time — and now the roles of both Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton have been cast in Liz and Dick.
About a month after Lohan, 25, was confirmed to play late screen legend Taylor in the Lifetime biopic, actor Grant Bowler has signed on to play Burton, arguably the love of Taylor’s life, who married and divorced her twice, E! News confirms
Bowler (who has appeared on True Blood, GCB, Lost, Ugly Betty and many other TV shows and films) is a full 18 years older than Lohan.
“Richard Burton was quite older than Elizabeth Taylor. This is from a visual point of view just about equal to Liz and Dick. Visually speaking it is a perfect match,” Liz and Dick producer Larry Thompson explained to E! News.
