According to E! Entertainment, Lindsay Lohan will guest host on ‘Chelsea Lately’ next week, filling in for Chelsea Handler. Lohan will do all the normal ‘Chelsea Lately’ host duties, such as some roundtable discussion and celebrity interviews.
Lohan joins previous celebrity guest hosts: Dave Grohl, Ross Mathews, and all three Kardashians. While Grohl had the opportunity to interview Elton John while hosting, there is no word yet on which guests will appear next week for Lohan.
The gig will help Lohan promote this Friday’s release of ‘The Canyons,’ a film partially funded through the help of Kickstarter, directed by Paul Schrader (‘Taxi Driver’) and written by author Bret Easton Ellis (‘Less Than Zero,’ ‘American Psycho’). Lohan stars in ‘The Canyons’ opposite adult film star James Deen, who is making his mainstream debut.
Lohan will have a busy week promoting the movie, and on August 18th, OWN will air her interview with Oprah Winfrey. Following this, OWN will feature an eight-part docu-series on Lohan.
Lohan does not have any notable talk-show hosting experience, but she has hosted SNL, and did a cameo in Handler’s opening skit for the 2010 MTV VMAs.
There will be plenty of curiosity for Lohan’s first show on Monday. After being asked so many questions over the years, she will now have the opportunity to ask some of her own.
