Lindsay Lohan has been ordered by the producers of her new film, The Other Side, to gain weight for her role.  I don’t know what’s bigger news: the fact that she’s finally going to look healthy or the fact that she got cast in a movie.

Aside from the weight gain, Lohan will have to undergo random drug tests as well.  That should be interesting.


According to IMDB, The Other Side is about “an over-achieving science scholar [who] tries to solve a bizarre mystery involving the residents of a remote island and ultimately discovers something she could have never predicted“.  Wow, that’s heavy.  I’m assuming that Lindsay Lohan plays the lead in the film, which also stars Woody Harrelson, Giovanni Ribisi, Dave Matthews and Alanis Morissette.  No, I’m not making that cast up.

It’s been awhile since Lohan was in a successful film so let’s hope this thing works.  Also, it would be amazing to see her on screen opposite Dave Matthews.  It would be like some crazy drug-induced dream.
