Lindsay Lohan is taking another step in her comeback effort, She’s landed a return spot as host on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” She also will have a powerful music guest, Jack White, formerly of the White Stripes.
The move will give her a chance to regain control of her image. Since her DUI arrest in 2007 and the string of legal problems that followed, she’s been a creature of the tabloids.
Her late-night partying, controversial relationships, meltdowns and trips to rehab allowed the trashier gossip mags to paint her in unflattering light, causing much of her film work to dry up.

The last time she appeared on “Saturday Night Live” was in 2006. She was at the top of her game following “Mean Girls” in 2004 and successive films “Herbie: Fully Loaded,” “Just My Luck,” and “Prairie Home Companion,” up trough 2006.
She became the youngest host of the MTV Movie Awards in 2004, when she was just 17. Lohan went on to host SNL three times between 2004 and 2006. She also hosted the 2006 World Music Awards. She was everybody’s darling.
After her stormy behavior while filming the 2007 picture “Georgia Rule” with Jane Fonda, her movie parts declined while her legal problems and hard partying mounted.
The film was trashed by critics but earned $41 million counting DVD sales. Lohan was nominated for her 12th and last Teen Choice Award. She’s won six in all, although most of the wins came early in her career.
Against that backdrop it’s amazing to see how far she’s fallen, so the sketch comedy show is a big break for her. She’ll get to showcase her comedic talents and her personality.
Lohan, 25, is also being mentioned for a possible starring role in a television movie about the love affair between ’60s screen stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. She would play Elizabeth.
She was recently featured in an editorial spread for the UK’s Love magazine. She does a sexy tough-girl pose with a cig dangling from her heavily rouged, bee-stung lips. Look familiar? See above and check out her photos. And for more photos check out INFDaily.
