Guess who’ll play Lindsay Lohan in upcoming big-screen spoof?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Lindsay Lohan’s movie career likely is over (a sad admission about an actress who once had such potential), so the closest thing we’ll get to seeing LiLo on the big screen is a high-profile spoof.

Heiress-turned-actress Lydia Hearst will play a version of Lohan in the upcoming comedy “Dogs in Pocketbooks,” according to the New York Post. The film’s screenwriter, Charles Casillo, admitted to the newspaper, “Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan.”

It will be the 26-year-old heiress’s first role. But Casillo said that even though Hearst lacked acting experience, she was the right candidate for the job.

“She’s one of the few supermodels who can actually act,” Casillo said. “She’s smart, well-read, charming and very beautiful. We looked at a lot of actresses for this role, and I was really knocked out.”

Hearst will be joined by another icon: Joan Collins (“Dynasty”) has agreed to play a high-powered agent in the comedy.

“The script is a hoot — a satire on the crazed hysteria surrounding show-biz celebrities. I’m playing an aggressive, sexy, powerful woman. For a change,” Collins joked.
