Grant Bowler Joins Elizabeth Taylor Biopic With Lindsay Lohan
Grant Bowler has reportedly signed on to appear alongside Lindsay Lohan in the upcoming Lifetime Network Elizabeth Taylor biopic "Liz & Dick." Bowler will co-star as Taylor's lover, Oscar winning Hollywood star Richard Burton. He is best known for his role as Cooter from "True Blood."
Executive producer Larry A. Thompson broke the news telling Deadline.com: "Grant will add gravitas to our couple and bring to life one of the greatest actors who has ever lived."
Lohan was confirmed for the role last month and it's rumored that her contract was delayed as she fulfilled legal requirements for the network. According to Thompson, Bowler was one of several men in contention for the role, but was chosen after "the chemistry erupted in the room" with Lohan.
