Lindsay Lohan was planning on making a career comeback after her trouble with the law. The one where she faced no consequences. Anyway, her comeback isn’t going so well. She started by being downgraded to a bit part and then to “we’ll think about it” in the Gotti biopic which is running into a lot of roadblocks.
Now reports are surfacing that Lindsay almost snagged a part in Steven Soderbergh’s new film Magic Mike starring Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer. She would have played Pettyfer’s girlfriend described as a character that’s “trouble with a capital T.” That’s pretty much Lindsay in a nutshell. Instead, the part went to Riley Keough (Elivis’ granddaughter and Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter), a newcomer. Why a newbie over a “seasoned vet” like Lindsay?
“He didn’t want to deal with all that,” our source spills. “Nobody wanted to go there.”
That’s telling when not even Steven Soderbergh will take a chance on you. He cast a porn star in Sasha Grey whose only film experience is going “uhhhh” on camera and an MMA fighter in Gina Carano whose only experience is kicking ass but not Lindsay Lohan. She’d be too much to handle.
Since Lindsay’s unemployed, she needs to find other ways to make money. Hence, the lawsuit she filed against Pitbull over his song Give Me Everything. Lindsay claims the lyrics “Hustlers move aside, so I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’, I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan,” is damaging her reputation. Lindsay wants an injunction to stop the broadcast of the song and, of course, unspecified damages.
Lindsay is pissed, claiming in her lawsuit … “the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff.”
Lindsay, who claims in the lawsuit she is “a professional actor of good repute and standing in the Screen Actors Guild, is suing under the New York civil rights laws, which protects people from having their name exploited for commercial purposes.
Lindsay alleges the appearance of her name in the song “causes [Lindsay] to be associated and identified in connection with defendants.”
I guess Lindsay doesn’t want her name sullied in places where people haven’t read about what a complete screw-up she is. Like in that one region of New Guinea where they just discovered a new tribe.
