If you thought the rumors of Robin appearing in the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises were unlikely, boy, do we have a doozy for you.
TMZ reports today that sources close to Lindsay Lohan — currently being investigated in the theft of a $2,500 necklace after her latest stint in rehab — say that people associated with the “actress” have had multiple phone conversations with the people behind Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot. According to these sources, Lohan is up for a “major role,” but not that of love interest Lois Lane. Those same sources told TMZ that, Lohan is “dying to show people again how talented she is.” Of course, her latest run-in with authorities could ruin her shot at the film. Or, well, any film.
If not Lois Lane, then who? Daily Planet columnist Cat Grant? The Girl of Steel, Supergirl? Yet another interpretation of the Miss Teschmacher character? If the rumors of Ursa’s involvement are true, Lohan could make an ironic cameo as a resident of the Phantom Zone.
In reality, this rumor is highly, highly unlikely. It’s noteworthy that something similar happened recently, when Lohan’s alleged Linda Lovelace bio-pic also coincided with her legal issues. Weird how she always manages to be up for a role only when she’s in trouble with the law.
To be fair, though, it could very well be true that Lohan’s people have had conversations with the producers of Superman. Technically, they could be having many conversations with those people’s voice mail. Who’s to say that’s not the case?
