Could Lindsay Lohan Star as Iggy Pop?

One’s the grizzled, 63-year-old Godfather of Punk. The other’s a troubled, 24-year-old starlet who’s currently cooling her heels in yet another rehab stint. But Iggy Pop and Lindsay Lohan have more in common than meets the eye … at least as far as Pop sees it.

During a recent Australian radio interview, “Lust for Life” singer Pop opined that Lohan would be the ideal candidate to play him in a biopic. (A planned biopic with Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood playing the musician was recently shelved.)

According to Pop, whose own drug dalliances and brushes with the law are a well-documented matter of record,

“She looks like me, and she’s the only one with enough attitude too. They could tape her boobs up or something. She’s been in jail at the right age and everything, so I think she could do it.”

If nothing else, it would probably provide Lohan with a bigger acting challenge than the Linda Lovelace biopic that she’s slated to star in.
