Who Did Lindsay Lohan Almost Play In The Avengers?
The star claims she went up for a role in the billion-dollar grossing film...
Lindsay Lohan claims she almost got a role in Marvel blockbuster Avengers Assemble.
During the most recent episode of her docu-series Lindsay, the actress was filmed saying that she wanted a role in the flick but didn’t get it because her manager didn’t push hard enough. An “unknown” was cast instead, she complained.
“If I don't work in a film, [my manager] passes it to Vanessa Hudgens; he passes it one of his other clients," Lohan said. "Every day I'm not on a film set, I'm wasting my talent because that's what I was born, and live, to do."
With so few female parts in Avengers Assemble, the question is which role was Lindsay up for? Over at MTV US they reckon – if her claim is true – Lindsay is referring to S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Maria Hill, played by How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders.
If Lindsay had got the part, there’s no question it would have changed her life – and she wouldn’t need to do a reality show.
Since being cast as Hill in Avengers Assemble, Smulders has also appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and is set to star in Avengers sequel, Age of Ultron.
