She’s had a tough time getting TV and film jobs, so Lindsay Lohan might take her talents to the stage in London. Watch out, West End!
The U.K. theatre community better brace itself, because it looks like Lindsay Lohan is coming their way. The troubled starlet admitted some curious news to the New York Times on Tuesday at fashion designer Jeremy Scott’s runway show in London.
She revealed to the periodical that she was in talks to join the show, Speed-the-Plow, by playwright David Mamet. The 27-year-old actress would make her debut in November.
Lohan shared, “It’s the first time I’ve done a stage play or anything like that. I’m nervous but I’m excited.”
The story is a black comedy about the cruel side of the movie industry and it follows two Hollywood producers looking for their big break. The Mean Girls star would tackle the role of Karen, who is one of the producer’s secretaries.
The character was originated on Broadway in 1988 by Madonna. The recent revival featured Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss in that same role.
It seems that Lohan is quite serious about taking on the show, because she told the paper she was limiting her time at London Fashion Week for the theatre.
“I’m going back to my West End world,” she said. “I’m a little overwhelmed. I haven’t done this — I haven’t really done the shows — in the last few years. But I live for fashion.”
This would be considered a major comeback for the actress. Her work in recent years has been a few guest star roles, the much-maligned movie, The Canyons, and her recent reality show on the OWN network.
