For once, it appears that Lindsay Lohan is being fought over to appear in a film. TMZ reports that Victoria Gotti herself has handpicked Lohan to play her in an upcoming film about her father and notorious gangster John Gotti.
Lohan even beat out Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti. Who would have thought this day would come? I’m personally so happy for her!
Sources close to the production tell TMZ that producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role, but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead. This isn’t surprising, apparently, as according to sources Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family and often spends time with them on Long Island. An inside job? Maybe. But Lohan should take what she can get.
Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman,” but TMZ is told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th to close the Gotti deal for good.
I think this merrits celebration. It will be her first movie role since her cameo in Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Machete’ as a meth-addicted daughter turned nun, so I’m hoping this role will cause her to be taken a little more seriously. I’ve always been a huge Lohan fan, so I’m rooting for her. It’s time to move on up!
