Actor Selected To Play Richard Burton Opposite Lindsay Lohan In Elizabeth Taylor Biopic
New Zealander and True Blood actor Grant Bowler has signed on to play Richard Burton in the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, which will star Lindsay Lohan.
According to executive producer Larry A. Thompson, “The chemistry erupted in the room… Grant will add gravitas to our couple and bring to life one of the greatest actors who has ever lived. Burton was a Welsh poet, a rascal, and a man’s man, who swept Elizabeth Taylor off her feet and flew her so close to the sun that they both exploded into stardust that still lights up Hollywood.”
The production is scheduled to begin in June.
