After recently filming an episode of Eastbound & Down with Danny McBride, Lindsay Lohan was apparently so impressive on the set that McBride wants to develop a show just for her. With Eastbound & Down approaching its last season, I can see why McBride would be eager to capitalize on Lohan’s
I can’t help but wonder if this is a great idea. I mean sure, it’s nice to see Lindsay working on something that’s not totally awful and it’s definitely nice to hear that she impressed someone with her acting abilities once more. But let’s think about this- most shows on HBO are a huge success, so I’m assuming McBride’s pitch would have to be a pretty darn good one. If it is, this means lots of buzz about it, and lots of promotion. Also lots of opportunities for temptation and a relapse, if you ask me.
Then again, if this ends up working out it might actually have the ability to erase the train wrecks that were Liz & Dick and The Canyons. Since the last thing I can remember enjoying Lindsay Lohan in was Mean Girls and that was nearly a decade ago, I’m keeping an open mind about this. But a cautious one.
