Will Lindsay Lohan make a great dame?

It was announced on Monday that the troubled, 25-year-old year old Mean Girls actress would indeed portray the late Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime Movie, Liz & Dick, which many are assuming could lead the way to her long-awaited comeback. However, there are still those who are on the fence as to whether Lindsay will do the legendary actress justice, thanks to her lukewarm episode of Saturday Night Live last month, which have many thinking she has lost those once fine acting chops.

We decided to ask our Facebook readers what they thought about Lindsay's new gig, and we got some interesting responses.

Erica A. said: umm not sure

Marysia J. said: i can see ita ctually [sic]

Monika J. said: I hope this brings back her career! I really liked her before she went down hill :)

Cindy R. said: ummmm i dont think so...i go wit megan fox!

Britney L. said: She is very talented, nobody can deny. Give her another chance, God is the only one who can judge and give new opportunities, stop insulting her. Go Lindsay :)

Angela R. said: Umm..NO! The way her acting performance has been lately, not really spectacular. If she is given the role? She has ALOT of Researching to do and practicing! Just saying!

Ryan L. said: Hopefully this will be the movie that kick starts her career again. I want to see her do well! :-)

Tia C. said: noo wayy!!! i want megan fox too.. she would be a better one.

Jessica A. said: I am surprised they would pick LL?? I hope she does Elizabeth Taylor right IDK if this is a smart choice

Jean L. said: Well - she will really hve to show us she can act.

Maybe her guest starring role on Glee will give us a better insight as to how well she'll do with this project?  

What do you guys think? Keep the debate going in the comments!

    They really look like each other a lot, but I have serious doubts about Ashton's acting talent.

    I think she will be better than Reese Witherspoon. Too bad it's only a TV movie.

    I am still in shock that she will portrait this legend, but the movie is sure gonna bring a lot of rating for Lifetime.

    I am a huge huge fan of both Jewel and June Carter! Honestly, to my ears, both of these ladies have a SWEET HEAVENLY ANGELIC VOICE which is such a comfort and consolation to listen to especially before going to bed or if you have some kind of constant troubles in life! Jewel is the most beautiful girl inside and out (Should be noted as the MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL because she is!) So is the gentle yet strong beautiful June Carter! Jewel a pure country rooted who loves the real nature of the sweet country side. To have JEWEL to play June Carter Cash is the BEST and RIGHT choice that ever happened!!! I already looking forward so much into this. Jewel and June, the most inspiring women in my LIfe! ~♥~

    it's like WWTDDdotcom says, Liz Taylor was beautiful beyond compare and incredibly talented, and Lindsay now is just.. unattractive. She has injected so much stuff in her face she doesn't even look like herself anymore. And honestly.. I never thought Lindsay was that talented. I saw Mean Girls and she was all right, but I didn't go, "ooh she's going to win an oscar someday!" Just.. "meh" on her acting ability.

    i think people should really give her a chance and stop shunning her. she hasent gone any where shes been there shes been around but people are way too negative. i think what if it was your daughter or sister or cousin you never turn your back on anyone because they screwed up you just fill them up with more love and give them the needed attention not negative attention. like in cochella everyones like oh no shes surrounded by drugs and alcohol lets watch her relapse but this is real life and not our life its lindsay's life and when you make polls like this you just fill the audience with anguish and they already dont like it without watching it. never judge by what others say make your own choice by watching it yourself. megan fox yea shes sultry and full of sex appeal but weyll be thinking the same of megan like we do of lindsay's in a few months or so because someone new comes along they always do and i just think everyone needs to drop the lindsay thing just like we did for paris and britney focus on your own life you wouldnt live in your neighbors life like this why hers and why now. and im just a fan

    I'm happy that Lindsay is getting back into actual acting. However, I don't think she's ready to even think about playing Elizabeth Taylor in even a Lifetime Movie about her. Looking at her performance on SNL, it could be a disaster. Then again, Lindsay could surprise us all. One can never know.
