West has signed up to star opposite Helena Bonham Carter in an upcoming British series called Burton and Taylor, and admits he has been watching Lohan's critically-mauled 2012 film Liz & DICk in preparation.
He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, "I've watched clips on (video sharing website) YouTube. I need to watch the whole thing."
West jokes of the U.S. mini-series, which featured Grant Bowler as Burton, "You could say they are a hard act to follow."
Bbc drama Burton and Taylor will air in the U.K. later this year (13).
