Light a candle and pray tonight for Lindsay Lohan‘s career. It is officially dead. The comeback movie Lindsay Lohan was hoping for Life-Size 2 has announced its co-lead actress. And her name is not Lindsay Lohan.
Deadline reports that Tyra Banks took time away from staring wide-eyed into any camera lens which is pointed in her general direction and calling it ‘Smizing’, to tell the world who she will be co-starring with in the sequel to the 2000 made-for-TV movie Life Size. 18 years is a long time to wait for a sequel, but Tyra held in there. After she announced the movie was happening, everyone assumed Tyra would have Lindsay Lohan back and she even suggested as much, but I guess those Greek beach clubs have kept a girl busy.
Yesterday, Tyra took to Twitter and posted about the casting, revealing Francia Raisa from Grown-Ish would be her co-star.
Now filming: LIFE SIZE 2.
It’s time y’all! You’ve waited long enough.
Could not find one single woman more perfect to co-star with Eve than the magnificently fierce @franciaraisa.

Francia was cast as Grace Manning, the CEO of the toy company which created the Eve doll, who is also “a hot mess in the middle of her quarter-life crisis and realizing that she is in over her head as CEO. To make matters worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet.” Is it me, or is that character description literally Lindsay Lohan? Dina Lohan is already speaking with a lawyer to see if they can sue for damages.
It’s really sad when you get dropped from the comeback of some mediocre piece of media which was predominantly watched by children. Lindsay really can’t catch a break. But hey! Maybe she can call up Orlando Brown and commiserate since they both went through the same thing. They even have a Raven-Symone connection! Sympatico. No word on when Lindsay will get a Tyra Banks neck tattoo, though. Hopefully soon.
