Lindsay Lohan Strips Down, Cleans Up Razzies, Lands Role in Jack Black Project

Don't call it a comeback. She's been here for years.

Say what you will about her script choices and off-screen behavior of late, but Lindsay Lohan has never been a slouch when it comes to getting her name in the news — and to prove it, we’ve got not one, not two, but three Lindsay-riffic news items for you.

Last week was just packed with Lindsay news, starting with the starlet’s nude photo shoot for New York magazine. The photos, taken by Bert Stern, were meant to recreate Marilyn Monroe‘s “Last Sitting,” the series shot by Stern in 1962, six weeks before Monroe’s death. Skeevy? Morbid? Perhaps. But hey, with Lindsay in her birthday suit, all parties involved had to know where most of the attention would be focused. (The link’s at the bottom of the article, and if you somehow haven’t seen the photos yet, here’s your warning: Obviously NSFW.)

In and of itself, the Lohan shoot isn’t the sort of thing we’d normally talk about here — but it sparked a flurry of interest in (surprise!) the starlet’s acting career, which many assumed to be in suspended animation after Georgia Rule and I Know Who Killed Me (more on the latter later). One of the bits of information that bobbed to the surface in the photoshoot’s wake was the announcement — exclusively confirmed to E! News — that Lohan has signed on to star opposite Jack Black in a comedy titled Ye Olde Times. From the article:

A source at Patriot Pictures, which is producing the yukfest, told E! News that the film follows two rival Renaissance Faire troupes as they make their way through the competitive circuit. It’s unclear whether Lohan will be one of Black’s repertory players or a member of a competing Ren Faire faction.

It sounds — dare we say it? — like something worth seeing. Something rather like the opposite of I Know Who Killed Me, in other words, leading us to our third bit of Lindsay news, which is that the aforementioned flop was the unquestioned “winner” of this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards, held Saturday morning in Santa Monica. I Know Who Killed Me made Razzies history, actually, racking up an unprecedented eight trophies. View the carnage below:
