We actually cast Lindsay Lohan, because Lindsay had this whole thing about converting to Islam. I talked to her and she was down, and then, you know, like Lindsay does, we just kind of stopped hearing from her”.
He added – “I was trying to get a hold of her and she was on the call sheet, and I guess she couldn’t make it. I don’t know, I never heard from her. You can’t try and put Lindsay in a box, that’s what I know. Lindsay is going to be Lindsay”.
In hopes of getting her for the third season, Ramy Youssef took to Twitter and wrote – “Season three inshallah”.
