Hearst Publishing Heir to Play Lindsay Lohan in Upcoming Movie

You’d think any film based on the life of Lindsay Lohan would be a tragedy, but screenwriter Charles Casillo says he has written a screwball comedy. The actress he’s found to play the troubled starlet has a history of family drama that outshines even LiLo’s. 26-year-old model Lydia Hearst-Shaw is the daughter of Patti Hearst, best known for being kidnapped and brainwashed by political extremists in the 1970′s. Her great-grandfather is the publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst.

Casillo is not a well-known screenwriter, but by associating his project with two famous names, he is generating plenty of press. And he doesn’t think Lilo should mind. Casillo tells Page Six that the film:

is in no way mean-spirited towards Lindsay. It’s the kind of thing she has spoofed about herself in the past. It’s more of a satire about the crazy people around her and the situations they generate. It satirizes the obsession with modern celebrity.

We feel a Lilo lawsuit coming on…

Lindsay Lohan Loses Linda Lovelace Gig

Matthew Wilder has grown weary of waiting for Lindsay Lohan to get out of jail/rehab/more rehab. The director has recast the lead role of his Linda Lovelace biopic “Inferno.” Malin Akerman, perhaps best known for her role as Laurie Jupiter in “Watchmen,” will be taking Lilo’s place.

A rep for the actress tells TMZ it was a mutual decision, made so Lohan could focus on her recovery. Wilder, however, says she was fired. From the LA Times:

While saying that he’d “rather not pick the scab” of Lohan’s firing, Wilder said that finding someone to provide insurance for the troubled actress “was proving a really tough obstacle.”

“I really, devoutly wanted that to work out so badly, I really did,” he said. “I hung in for a long time — longer than most people would, I think. My respect for Lindsay’s talent is huge. But it ultimately was just not a doable thing.”

Probably for the best. Lohan has been whored out by her parents and by Hollywood since she was a child. We weren’t looking forward to watching her get whored out again — even in a fictional context.

Dina Lohan Threatens Glee With Legal Action

Dina Lohan is seriously pissed about Tuesday night’s episode of Glee. The episode featured guest star Gwyneth Paltrow as a substitute Spanish teacher who poked fun at Lindsay Lohan as part of her lesson plan. “Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?” she asked her student en espaƱol, and “How many times has Lindsay been in rehab?” (the answer is cinco).

Dina told website Gossip Cop that her lawyers are sending a letter to Glee about the, uh, defamation. And then a rep added some self-righteous drivel about how addiction is no laughing matter, or some such nonsense.

As Dodai Stewart of Jezebel noted, she might as well try to sue the entire internet.

Now if Dina wants to sue Glee over the show’s G-rated, gutless cover of Cee Lo Green‘s “Fuck You,” we are behind her all the way. Oh Cee Lo. How could you let this happen?

LiLo Back To Rehab, and Not Happy About It

Lindsay Lohan avoided jail time today, but was sentenced to live-in rehab until January at the earliest. After violating the terms of her probation by failing a drug test last month, Lohan could have been facing some serious time. But a handwritten plea to the court for more treatment landed her in prolonged rehab instead.

You’d think she would be happy about staying out of prison. But TMZ got a hold of court documents which reveal Lohan complained to her probation officer that a prolonged stay in rehab would damage her career.

“The defendant says her clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product,” the documents state.

Strangely, she may actually be right. If the Mexican mob can run California’s drug trade from inside prison, LiLo can probably handle her clothing line. Those rehab places are air tight though.

Even if her line does fall apart in rehab, Lohan will have work when she gets out. The director of Lohan’s next film “Inferno” told TMZ he’d wait for Lohan to begin shooting.

Reaction to Lindsay Lohan Radio Offer

lohans2.jpg

We told you last week about JVC Broadcasting wanting actress Lindsay Lohan to host a nationally syndicated radio show with her mother Dina.

The show’s would be based in Ronkonkoma, New York at the Party 105 studios.

The Long Island broadcaster, led by President/CEO John Caracciolo, is offering the Lohans 1 million dollars to lead the morning show.

Since that post, several former JVC and TMO [previous company name] employees got in touch with FishbowlNY regarding the possible Lohans hire.

“They already attempted this with Amy Fisher,” one former staffer says. “Interesting that when Long Island ladies go bad, TMO/JVC is there to put them on the air!”

Fisher was dubbed the “Long Island Lolita” for her tryst with mechanic Joey Buttafuoco. In 1992, you’ll recall, there was a media firestorm after she shot and severely wounded Buttafuoco’s wife Mary Jo.

After Fisher’s jail time, JVC management signed her to write columns for their Long Island Press and co-host a short-lived morning show in 2003.

As for Lohan, she is attempting to resurrect her career and her life. The Merrick, N.Y., native has had various personal issues in recent months, including DUI convictions and rehabilitation stints.

Messages left with Caracciolo were not returned.

Lindsay Lohan Coming to a Radio Near You?

The gossip pages’ favorite celebrity–actress Lindsay Lohan reportedly has been offered 1 million dollars to host a syndicated national radio show with her mother Dina Lohan.

Hollyscoop.com says the Merrick, N.Y. natives would host the show at Long Island-based Party 105.

JVC Broadcasting says in the press release that the Lohans would anchor the station’s popular Dance Top 40 morning show.

In addition, they would cover various topics including fashion tips and, of course, entertainment news. The mother/daughter duo would also give advice to fans that call in.

The younger Lohan recently got out of rehab after spending two weeks in jail for a probation violation in connection to a 2007 DUI.

Since leaving rehab, Lohan is spending more time with her mother in their Long Island hometown.

Jonah Goldberg: Cronkite ‘Overrated’ and Breitbart ‘a Friend’

s-JONAH-GOLDBERG-large.jpg
Momma’s boy Jonah Goldberg is touting the new “journalism” of his buddy Andrew Breitbart in his latest column. Since last week, Breitbart‘s name has become a synonym for bullshit cloaked as journalism (like “an OJ” means “a stabbing” or an anti-gay Republican means “gay”). In order to make the point about how lopsided malicious propaganda is “progress,” Goldberg tries to to slay Walter Cronkite’s legacy. Which is like saying a Megan Fox bearded drag queen is the best thing to ever happen to acting because Maryl Streep isn’t all that great.

Column is here.

    Two years ago it was rumored and largely reported that Lindsay Lohan was going to play Manson devotee Nancy Pitman in the film Manson Girls.

    That looks like it never panned out.

    However, Lohan and other Manson follower Leslie Van Houten, are both in the news today. One for probation – one for parole. It’s almost like the movie, huh?

    Lunch: Harold Ford, Jr., Ken Starr, and a Slew of Fashionable Folks

    — DIANE CLEHANE

    There was definitely something in the air (besides all that pesky pollen) at Michael’s today. The dining room was so jam packed with every conceivable type of boldfaced name I could barely keep track of all the wheeling and dealing that was going on around me. While the fashionistas and socialites traded air kisses and picked at the salads, the media mavens were spinning like there was no tomorrow. The power lunch is back, folks, so break away from your desk and go make something happen.

    Here’s the rundown on today’s crowd:

    1. Jack Myers, presiding over a table of movers and shakers: Huffington Post’s Greg Coleman, Eric Hippeau and Phil Cara; Colgate’s Jack Haber, Pattie Glod of Limited Brands; and E*Trade’s Nick Utton.

    2. Peter Brown and Dan Scheffey, who joins Fairchild Fashion Group on May 10 as the new director of communications for the trade and business sector of Conde Nast. Dan tells me he’ll be working on all the titles including WWD and WWD.com. He reports to president Gina Sanders. Congrats!

    3. ‘Mayor’ Joe Armstrong with Vanity Fair’s Wayne Lawson and Punch Hutton and a chic blonde gal we didn’t get to me. Joe, fresh off another trip to his home state of Texas was all jazzed up to tell the group about the The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas. (He’s on the board.) Joe reports that the center has acquired an impressive array of archives of literary legends including Norman Mailer, Tennessee Williams, Evelyn Waugh, and even Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Joe also reports that none other than Robert De Niro has given the center his script archive and actually footed the bill for two 18-wheelers to deliver the costumes he’s worn in his films. So, the next time you’re in Austin, you might want to check it out.

    4. Sean Cassidy — no, not the eighties pop icon — this fellow works for Dan Klores.

    New York Post Practices Unsafe Journalism

    spoofcards.jpg

    And here we are, talking about accountability again, which was not used with any thought to discretion today in New York Post‘s article about Spoofcard, a service that allows you to scramble your number for outgoing calls, making it easy to hack into people’s messaging services, get their voicemails, and even change their messages.

    Why is this relevant news?

    Well, because Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan have had their phones hacked using Spoofcards, and since The Post has given you step-by-step instructions on how to use one of those “theoretically legal” (what does that even mean? Lawfully legal? Juridically legal? But not morally legal?) cards, soon you too can be using them for “for pranks, calling boyfriends or mothers under another number to fool them.” Not The Post approves, in anyway, of course. They’re just letting you know.
