Lindsay Lohan appears to be a natural to play Elizabeth Taylor if the first official image from her upcoming Lifetime TV movie is any indication.

The female skewing cable network on Monday released the image of Lohan as Taylor and True Blood's Grant Bowler as Richard Burton from the upcoming telepic Liz & Dick.

Production on the effort, which will chronicle Taylor and Burton's romance -- often dubed the "marriage of the century" for its ups and downs and coverage in the tabloids -- started Monday in Los Angeles.
