Sienna Miller Replaces Lindsay Lohan in Movie

One tabloid darling will replace another in the film about poet Dylan Thomas, The Best Times of Our Lives. Lindsay Lohan had been chosen to play the part of Thomas' wife Caitlin MacNamara, yet she dropped out when the film's financiers couldn't come to a deal with her.

Second choice is Sienna Miller who will now be working opposite Keira Knightley, Cillian Murphy and Matthew Rhys. Variety says:

Scripted by Knightley's playwright mother Sharman Macdonald, pic is based on a rivalry between two women over the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (Rhys). Miller will play his wife, Caitlin MacNamara, and Knightley plays his childhood friend Vera Phillips.

This is the second time in recent history when Lohan has been replaced in a film, having walked away from Tennessee Williams' The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, in which Bryce Dallas Howard took her place.

I can't take LL as an actress seriously anymore. I saw the ads for Georgia Rule and because of her and the antics she caused during filming I have no desire to see it.

LL has become such a caricature of herself, it's hard to take her seriously. Too bad, since she once had real potential. Sienna Miller isn't my favorite, but she could be a good in this role.

this makes her sound like she thinks she's bigger than she actually is. Tabloids are writing stories about your visits to rehab and suddenly you're Angelina Jolie? Pheh!
