Although Lindsay Lohan has been making strides toward re-entering the acting game and leaving her problem-plagued past behind, she took a minor step backward Wednesday (April 25) when she reportedly arrived late to film her upcoming cameo on “Glee.”
According to TMZ, Lohan arrived late on set after she was spotted out on the town in Los Angeles in the wee hours of the morning.
Actress Dot-Marie Jones, who plays Coach Beiste, apparently let the cat out of the bag when she tweeted about an unidentified person’s tardiness causing delays in filming. Jones’ tweet has since been deleted, but TMZ snagged a copy of it beforehand. “Gonna be a long day!! Some ppl show up late and just throw a wrench in things,” Jones reportedly tweeted. “Not cool! I’d rather be an hour early (I was) than 5 minutes late!”
A source connected to the production assured the gossip site that Lohan’s late arrival did not cause any delays. Apparently, Lohan filmed her big scenes the day before and was on hand Wednesday to shoot reaction scenes. Director Eric Stoltz was quoted saying that Lohan has been “very professional” during her time on set, nailed all her lines and was very polite to the cast and crew.
Lohan is said to be playing herself as one of three judges at the national choir competition. Her episode is slated to air sometime in May.
After her stint on “Glee,” the former Disney star will tackle the role of Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime TV movie “Liz and Dick,” an opportunity Lohan has called an honor.
“I have always admired and had enormous respect for Elizabeth Taylor,” Lohan said in the statement. “She was not only an incredible actress but an amazing woman as well. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role.”
