Michael Lohan dissaproves of Lindsay’s new ‘Manson Girls’ role

Michael Lohan feels that Lindsay made a bad career choice by signing onto the new film “Manson Girls,” chronicling the women who followed mass murderer Charles Manson. Lohan has agreed to play Nancy Pittman, aka “Brenda,” one of the women in Manson’s inner circle while he planned the murder of actress Sharon Tate. Daddy Lohan thinks his daughter should go back to playing more wholesome roles, like the ones that made her famous.

Michael Lohan isn’t thrilled his daughter has signed on to star in Manson Girls. (She will play one of the murderer’s cult followers.)

“I really hope that Lindsay gets back to the kinds of films that led to her success,” he told Usmagazine.com Thursday at the Celebrity Apprentice finale in NYC. “I’d like to see her do more mainstream films.”

Lohan’s past string of films — including I Know Who Killed Me and Bobby — have bombed at the box office. Chapter 27 — her latest movie opening this weekend — centers on the assassination of John Lennon.

Michael told Us those films “were geared to a specific audience.”

“When you’re the kind of star Lindsay is, you have to appeal to a general audience, not just a specific audience,” he added.

Michael also told Us he was relieved those Callum Best sex tape rumors were put to rest.

“You don’t know what people put out there anymore!” he said. “So many people have hidden cameras. Our private lives are our private lives — people don’t respect that.”

Guess what, pops? The “wholesome roles” ship has sailed when it comes to your older daughter. The reason she’s accepting roles as nut jobs and tramps is because they’re easy for her to play, if you know what I mean. Can you imagine Lindsay doing another Disney film right now?

Picture note by Celebitchy: Lindsay Lohan is shown on 3/23/08 leaving Villa with her girlfriend, Samantha Ronson, thanks to Splash News. Her dress is see through so I guess these photos are semi NSFW. It looks like Samantha is wearing the “SR” ring now.

    Why is anyone listening to this guy anyway?

    And he wants her to play wholesome roles, but nobody is going to hire her for anything like that, because her public image is anything but wholesome.

    no linsay, i wasn’t talking about you . . . why is it always me, me, me, me. i was talking about another redhead.

    and yeh i saw you. i can’t figure out whose the more scandalous . . . you or your dad.

  3. daisy says:

    I’ll say it again
    Porn is in her future

  4. Bellatrix says:

    Is she going back to red?

  5. TT says:

    Mainstream and wholesome, my ass. He just wants her to make more money.

  6. Why doesn’t she make another crappy album instead of trying sell movie tickets…it’s over ..done..get over it Li-Lo, you had your chance!

  7. cc says:

    Another Disney movie, huh? We should think of titles for her Disney roles…

    Rescuing Princess Skankzilla
    Rehab with Cinderella

    Anyone else want to play?

  8. AC says:

    i really hope she doesn’t listen to her dad. taking on edgy and weird… even challenging roles is the only way for her to find a new niche and impress anyone.

  9. daisy says:

    title for her Disney shows

    Herbie Fully LOADED
    did’nt even have to make that one up. Its sad to see that every day she is looking more and more like her middleage mother

  10. ER says:

    I like her better with red hair.

  11. xiaoecho says:

    why is she playing Brenda when she’s a dead ringer for Squeaky?

  12. Rianna says:

    I think that if she really wants to get a hit in the box office she should push for a voice part in a disney animated film. That is the future for her. She has a great voice for voicework on film.

    Dad Lohan;

    Move on dude, she’s not going to listen to you and why should she? You aren’t such a hot example for her, neither is Mom Lohan.

  14. Syko says:

    Seems like type casting to me.

  15. Bodhi says:

    LL’s “wholesome” days are long long gone & I doubt if Ali will have any at all

  16. Syko says:

    Hell, Ali is already unwholesome! Just looking like that at the age of 12 – it blows my mind. This is a family of early agers. Lindsay herself, 21, looking 37…

  17. Joe says:

    Whats he think of her new video?

  18. neelyo says:

    She’s lucky she’s getting any work at all. She was probably cast in this Manson movie because of her notoriety. I’ll bet there aren’t any other names attached to it. If porn isn’t in her future, Playboy or Hustler definitely are. Nutjobs and tramps, indeed.

  19. Ur A Loser says:

    doesnt approve of her upcoming role? I think there are bigger fish to fry Lohan dad!
