1st look at Lindsay Lohan in 'Liz & Dick'

Lifetime on Monday released the first official photo of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in its movie, "Liz & Dick," showing Lilo and her co-star, Grant Bowler, who plays Richard Burton.

The film started principal photography in Los Angeles on Monday. Lohan's hiring has caused a bit of controversy, but the movie's executive producer, Larry Thompson, told E! News last week that LiLo was "more than ready" to play the role.

"This is really happening," he was quoted as saying. "This isn't like making an appearance on 'Glee' or spending a week on 'SNL.' She is No. 1 on the call sheet. She is the star."

Thompson told E! News the shoot will take just 20 days. Hmm, that makes on wonder how well it will turn out.

Hard to form an opinion based upon this photo, but let's try. I think, and one of my colleagues here at RedEye agrees, Lilo really does look like Liz in the photo. What do you think?
