Helena Bonham-Carter To Play Liz Taylor

Move over, Lindsay Lohan: you’ve got some competition in the Elizabeth Taylor sweepstakes. Helena Bonham-Carter, 46, has signed to play La Liz in an upcoming TV movie. (Lindsay played her on TV last year in ” Liz & Dick,” which wasn’t nearly campy enough to enjoy nor witty enough to admire.) Helena’s costar as Richard Burton will be Dominic West, known to American audiences from ” The Wire.” The new movie will be set in 1983, as Taylor and Burton are getting ready to open on Broadway in Noel Coward’s “Private Lives.”
