WATCH: Will Lindsay Lohan's Comeback Begin with This SNL Promo?

I won't waste space rattling off a list of the personal and professional troubles that have plagued Lindsay Lohan's life and career in recent years, so let's cut to the chase: Will her Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend -- her fourth time on the show after some admittedly hilarious prior turns -- show the world that La Lohan's ready to mount a comeback? Watch a healthy-ish-looking Lohan vaguely touch on her well-documented absence from glory in her SNL promos after the jump.

First thoughts:

- Who sent Lohan to Zooey Deschanel's hairdresser?

- Am I the only one transfixed by the plasticized morphing of her face from the face I thought she had?

- Seriously, I know Kenan Thompson is in this bit too, but I can't. Stop. Staring. At Lohan.

- Linds-sanity! What would Ben & Jerry put in that flavor of ice cream?

- Glimmers of the comic timing I remember seeing in Lohan long ago. Encouraging!

Anyway, I'm setting my DVR now.

    I can't figure out if you are being sarcastic or serious.

    Really what is this? Bad writing????

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      Oh, SaltySue! We've missed you. Do you still take your bile on the rocks, or are you just drinking it neat these days?

  • The Winchester says:

    Her cheeks are something out of John Carter.

  • Lindsay, I hope your career will work out. I really do.
    Honest... really.

    This picture--if you could only look serious, keep this
    hairdo, you could do a fine Mary Travers impersonation.
    Everybody sing!---

      Kris, are all Klingons funny like you?

      You have a nice nasty streak, so you must be an
      old-school Klingon.

      • Nah, most Klingons aren't funny, which is too bad. All
        that "honor" crap is dull.
        I try to be nasty, and operate as an "old school" Klingon;
        A happy villain, a smiling antagonist. Think "Rupert of Hentzau", but with a rubber headpiece.
        Thanks, Notto!

    I'd rather slit my eyeballs with a dull razor than watch a Lohan comeback at this point.

  • Seashell says:

    I am always rooting for the underdog. I pray she does make a comeback and a strong one! Being negative doesn't help anyone, especially ourselves.

  • Megan says:

    IF anything, it's good that the girl's supposedly trying. It's a miracle that she hasn't pulled a Winehouse yet. So, good luck to her. But damn, she needs a makeover.

    • Patrick Hallstein / McEvoy-Halston says:

      If she were more literate, maybe someone like Woody Allen or Scorcese would co-opt and save her, by linking her shakey soul to a firmament of legends. All being back on SNL does is make it possible for us to guffaw/gack! at her, outside a context which would leave us feeling we were ravenous for her ultimate despoliation and ruin.

  • Westy says:

    Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  • Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I truly believed you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you can fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.
