The world will finally get to see Lindsay Lohan's first starring role in years when her Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick" premieres later this month, but fans got a sneak peek at the film this week when an exclusive clip was posted online.
Lohan plays the late Elizabeth Taylor in "Liz & Dick," which chronicles the iconic beauty and international superstar's long and tumultuous romantic relationship with the actor Richard Burton. The film is set to premiere of Lifetime on Nov. 25 at 9 p.m.
In the new clip posted online, Lohan's Taylor meets the writer Ernest Lehman (played here by David Eigenberg, who played Steve Brady in "Sex and the City"). Lehman tells Taylor he thinks she's perfect for a role in his next film, an adaptation of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"
Taylor is interested in the part, at least until Richard Burton says he'd like to star alongside her. Lehman says Burton isn't write for the role, but Taylor and Burton quickly begin arguing in the middle of a party.

Lohan was scheduled to promote "Liz & Dick" in an exclusive, high-profile interview with Barbara Walters that would have aired on ABC's "20/20" this week. But But Deadline reported on Nov. 8 that Lohan's new press representatives cancelled the appearance because they didn't like the direction the interview was headed.
Not only did Lohan cancel on Walters, but she also scheduled another interview for the same week, this time on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno.
Walters remarked on the situation at the very beginning of the latest episode of "The View."
"I have a few things to say about Lindsay Lohan," Walters began. "I like Lindsay Lohan very much. I've known her for years, since when she was a child star [and] very vulnerable. And she said when she would do an interview, she would sit down and do it with me."
Despite the fact that Lohan reneged on her commitment, Walters closed the segment by saying she was happy for her colleague Leno, and she sent well wishes to Lohan.
"I wish Lindsay the best. We would have done a wonderful interview. I hope she feels well," Walters said.
