  • I really don’t get why people love to talk about Lindsay Lohan. She is a screw up that will end up in jail for an extended time at some point. It’s not like she is some superstar. The only movie I have ever seen with her even in it was some idiotic Herbie movie playing for the young patients at work lol. I doubt anyone is ever going to hire her again after recent events.

    • Even better, her first credit on IMDB is for appearing on Letterman as: Trick-or-Treater Dressed as Garbage. ROFL, they nailed that one.

    • Robert Downey, Jr. made a successful comeback after being a screw up himself. I think Lindsey could do the same thing if she’s careful.

      • I wish people woudn’t always mention Robert Downey, Jr. everytime an article about Lindsay Lohan or some other troubled star comes up. He overcame his problems a long time ago. Just leave him out of it. If he is the only example you can come up with then I don’t think there is much hope for her.

      • RDJ was an Oscar nominated actor before his screw up. Being a screw up doesn’t make you talented or relevant.

        • Lindsay Lohan was a talented actress before she became a screw-up. Critics expected great things from Lohan circa-2004.

    • Lohan was considered one of the most promising young actors at an earlier point in her career. Hopefully, she’ll rise above her egentics and succeed.

  • Can they order five more scripts of Community too please…

    • More than five. Many more than five.

  • The voiceovers in the commercials for Emily Owens are so annoying that I can’t even fathom watching a full hour. What a stupid show that the CW audience is clearly rejecting.

    • The voice overs are actually pretty funny in my opinion.

      • I actually enjoy that show. It just needs a bit of time to find its footing.

  • Good God, Lindsay Lohan looks like she’s about 45 in that picture.

  • Barbara Walters has been pimping that for a while. She must be livid.

  • Liza Lapira is hilarious! Sounds great. It’s also worth noting that Rebel Wilson is the show’s creator and NBC passed on the pilot last season.

  • I am all for Lohan making a great comeback. I still watch Parent Trap every now and then because she was really great in it, especially at that young of age. But lets face it, her run ins with the law and court appearances are now outnumbering her filmography. She has had too many chances to get her life back together for her to make a successful comeback.
