The Lindsay Lohan-Barbara Walters interview is scheduled to air November 16 on ABC’s newsmagazine 20/20, just ahead of the premiere of Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, which stars Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor. Walters confirmed the booking this morning on The View. Lohan is trying to revive her acting career after being derailed by personal issues and the law the past few years and is doing her part promoting the Lifetime telepic, which co-stars Grant Bowler as Richard Burton and centers on the couple’s longtime passionate and stormy love affair. (FYI, even Lifetime parent company boss Nancy Dubuc said she warned Liz & Dick with Lohan would be a risk.) Lohan also is starring in the indie pic The Canyons and scored points with her hosting job on Saturday Night Live in March, steering the show’s highest-rated episode of the season.
