Lohan Heads To Ye Olde Times With Black
Lindsay's going back to comedy

22 February 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: E!

submit to reddit

Bashing Lindsay Lohan is a popular sport these days. Some say it may even end up in the next Olympics. But we'd really like to see the once excellent actress who made a few wrong choices get back on track, because she was fantastic in films like Mean Girls and should have gone on to be known for more than drinking and boycotting knickers. So we're pleased to hear that she's apparently joined the next Jack Black comedy.

E! Online is reporting that Lohan will join Black in Ye Olde Times, a film that follows two rival renaissance fair troupes on the competitive circuit. We didn't know renaissance fairs were competitive, but we're all up for a bit of aggressive jousting and brutal assault with a pig's bladder on a stick.

The film is set to shoot in April, with the cast also featuring Cary Elwes, Matthew Lillard, David Arquette, Ann Margaret, Orlando Jones and Molly Bryant.

Your Comments

tell you what olly...
...the leering comments about how 'proper fit' she is and how long it took to save her slideshow pictures really backs up your argument that she should be appreciated as an actress... "...very effective in Bobby...she's a very able actress and among the better comedic actresses of her age" talk about being dammed by faint praise. Mean Girls is her high water mark, and if that's the best laurels she has to rest on, she needs to take a long look at herself and her career. More

She was a great child actress. She's also very effective in Bobby. I'm not saying she's made brilliant films – although I think Mean Girls is a highly underrated comedy – but she's a very able actress and among the better comedic actr More

Lohand bashed me good - well the good part of me (heh heh heh)
This should be enjoyable, good cast (Lillard did a brilliant impessonation of Shaggy and was the only good thing in those movies) Lohan needs to get back on track as I agree she was good in Mean Girls. More
