Move over, Mariah Carey. Linsday Lohan is coming for you this Christmas. She’s providing millennials with the best Christmas song cover ever. The actress dropped her version of the classic Christmas song “Jingle Bell Rock” on Friday (November 4), which was famously performed with her fellow Mean Girls co-stars — 18 years later.
Now, Lohan’s Christmas single is featured in her upcoming Netflix rom-com Falling for Christmas. Lohan, 36, plays Sierra Belmont, a newly engaged heiress who suffers from amnesia after a skiing accident in the days leading up to Christmas. As she recovers she is cared for by handsome lodge owner Jake (played by Glee alum Chord Overstreet), and his young daughter. Lohan’s younger sister Ali Lohan, Jack Wagner and Blythe Howard also star in the film. This is Lohan’s first movie project since her 2010 cameo in Machete.
On getting back into acting, she told The Hollywood Reporter last month, “My whole life, acting is like riding a bicycle. It’s just in me. It’s a part of me. Doing films, playing a character, it brings me so much joy to be able to share a story with people. To take people on that journey with me is such a blessing.”
This is Lohan’s first Netflix film, but it doesn’t seem to be her last. She told the publication that there is more of Lindsay to come on the streamer. “I am having a wonderful time working with Netflix and am discussing next steps! I would love to dive deeper and play a character who’s on a journey [of] self-discovery.” She added that she wants to work with directors that “make me grow as an artist. Directors that have vision, style and create films that 20 years from now I will be happy that I was in them.”
Falling for Christmas debuts on Netflix on November 10.
