Lindsay Lohan: The aftermath of the sentence
Now that a 90-day jail sentence has been issued and some courtroom tears have been shed and some Web photos of profanely painted fingernails have been posted, the question is: what's next for Lindsay Lohan? Can she do her time in prison while still working toward a career comeback? Opinions are mixed.
An item from Fox News claims that Lohan's career is now in a "tailspin," and follows up on that headline with a nail-in-the-coffin quote from Hollywood publicist Michael Levine, former PR man for Michael Jackson: "Her employability over the next five years is impossible. She can’t get insurance, she is too much of [a] liability. Even if her best friend wanted to make a movie with her, it just couldn’t happen.”
A producer for "One Night With You," one of the projects Lohan has signed on to tackle, tells Entertainment Weekly that the film could be pushed back by six months to a year, and that it is indeed unclear whether the actress could get bonded to do the movie. But on a more positive note for Lohan, Matthew Wilder -- director of "Inferno," the Linda Lovelace biopic in which she is set to star -- has said he's sticking by the actress and won't move forward with the project without her. Same goes for the producers of "The Dry Gulch Kid," a Willie Nelson production she's currently in negotiations to join. No word yet on what impact, if any, this matter has on "Machete," the Robert Rodriguez grindhouse flick that co-stars Lohan and is due out in September.
And now that the courtroom drama has died down, some are expressing sympathy and support for Lohan. A blogger for Huffington Post feels sorry for the actress. And the folks at E! Online are openly rooting for her comeback.
Do you think Lohan can bounce back and become a successful actress again? Or are the odds -- and the potential liabilities -- stacked against her?
