Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s LiLo?: In some movie casting news we find a little distubring – TMZ is reporting that Lindsay Lohan’s people have had multiple phone conversations with producers behind the “Superman” franchise reboot about the actress appearing in the film. She’s reportedly supposed to meet with the team behind the movie – which recently cast Henry Cavill in the lead role as the iconic Man of Steel – soon. A TMZ source said that Lindsay is “dying to show people again how talented she is.” Reps for Warner Bros. were not immediately available for comment when contacted by AccessHollywood.com. Roll Call’s comment, “WORST. CASTING. IDEA. EVER.”
Bristol Palin… Author?: In more ideas we’re not exactly thrilled about, Bristol Palin has reportedly written a book. The still-untitled memoir – coming in at 304 pages – is slated to hit stores on June 21, Radar Online reported. Since Snooki, Lauren Conrad, Whitney Port (a favorite novel in the AccessHollywood.com offices!) and Justin Bieber all wrote books (with the help of ghost writers), we guess it’s OK for Bristol to do so too.
