Lindsay Lohan Describes Plea For 'SNL' Gig On 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'
Oh, it's just not fair sometimes.
Imagine if schedules had been flipped, Lil' Wayne had made his scheduled "Jimmy Kimmel Live" appearance last night, and Lindsay Lohan had guested on Kimmel's show instead of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." America could've been treated to the two troubled entertainers exchanging fairly-recent legal system tour impressions.
When the troubled-but-reforming actress sat down last night with Fallon, he asked that she confirm that it was in fact she who broached a fourth career gig hosting "SNL," this time alongside former White Stripes singer Jack White. It's all truth, Lohan said. And she apparently went after the job with some gusto.
"I kept asking him, and not harassing him, but I wasn't giving up," Lindsay said, admitting she was a little like a dog with a bone. "And I was like, 'Can I host? Can I host? Can we do something together?' And he was in L.A., and you know Lorne, he's very straight to the point, and he was like, 'What about March 3?'
"And I was like, 'I'm free! I'll make myself free!'"
She's sharing the love, too. She happily invited the "SNL" alum to drop in for a walk-on, though she kept her lip buttoned about prospective sketches.
"You want me to come on your show?" a flattered Fallon answered. "I'll do anything for you if you want me to do it. I'll do that."
Lohan also confirmed that crashing late-night sets isn't her only planned gig. She confirmed that, as previously rumored, she'll play late movie great Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's upcoming "Liz And Dick."
"I am playing Elizabeth Taylor - it starts with me as her in 'Cleopatra' [and] it spans over the years with her relationship with Richard Burton, which [spanned] towards the end of their lives," Lohan said.
Still, small problem, she said: Richard Burton hasn't been cast yet.
Guess who had a suggestion...
"I'm not doing anything. Want to invite me to something else? I could play Richard Burton!" Fallon suggested.
