The last time Lindsay Lohan grabbed headlines like this she was in court. The "Freaky Friday" actress, 25, is firmly in the spotlight (again) as she prepares to host a new "Saturday Night Live" this weekend. While LiLo has starred in the show three times before, this is the first time since 2006, back when she was better known for her movies than for her off-screen antics. So, you might be wondering: How did she swing another shot at it just when she needs a career comeback the most? The starlet was persistent in calling the producer of "SNL" and her 2004 hit "Mean Girls," Lorne Michaels, according to what she told Jimmy Fallon on his late-night talk show on Thursday.

"I kept asking him and not harassing him, but I wasn't giving up," Lindsay said. When Lohan met with Michaels face to face in L.A., he finally gave her the answer she'd been wanting. "You know Lorne, he's very straight and to the point," she said. "He was like, 'What about March 3?' I'm like, 'Oh yeah, I'm free! I will make myself free!'"

Of course, guests rarely leave Jimmy's studio without playing a game, and Lindsay was no different. After her interview, she joined Jimmy and a couple of audience members in a round of Pictionary. While she wasn't great at that -- at first she claimed she didn't know what her clue "pole vaulting" was -- I'm holding out hope she'll do better on "SNL"!
