Check out Lindsay Lohan like you’ve never seen in new Super Bowl ad with William Shatner

Good Morning America

"Kickoff" and "comeback" are a couple of football terms associated with Super Bowl Sunday, and for Lindsay Lohan, they will take on a fun new meaning during the big game.

Lindsay has been in the spotlight nearly her entire life, and to help put her past to bed and own the mistakes that made headlines along the way, she's making fun of it for millions to see.

The actress teamed up with Planet Fitness for an ad that will air during Super Bowl LVI, narrated by William Shatner and with cameos from Dennis Rodman and Danny Trejo, that will embrace the missteps and help her move on, with some humor. A preview of the commercial debuted Friday on Good Morning America.

"I was really involved in the concept," Lohan told GMA about the creative process. "You have to poke fun at things, bring light to the situation, especially because I'm in such a good place to talk about it. This is the final, the final, last time we will go backwards and bring up the past."

Lohan noted, "Not filming for so long and not, you know, making movies for a long time, especially during the pandemic, that really made me appreciate it more and miss it so much more that I knew I was ready to come back."

Now, with a new movie, her own podcast, and a wedding to plan, the actress says she's feeling "really lucky and blessed," and excited for the future.

Lohan announced her engagement on Instagram last November. She said of her idea wedding, "I want to keep it small and intimate and just, you know, family focused and just really beautiful."

Lindsay added with a laugh, "I'm a very lucky girl and he's a very lucky man."

William Shatner channels Captain Kirk for historic Blue Origin space flight

Good Morning America

William Shatner will make history Wednesday as he boldly goes where few have gone before while aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard launch vehicle.

The Star Trek actor who played the iconic Captain Kirk joined Good Morning America on Monday along with his fellow flight crew members as they anxiously await their delayed departure.

"I'm deeply disappointed because I was building up the enthusiastic response, now we have to wait another day," Shatner said. "[But] it's really worth it. What's a day with this extraordinary experience that we're about to have?"

The 11-minute ride to the edge of space about 60 miles above the earth's surface comes just two months after the first successful Jeff Bezos-owned space flight with Wally Funk, 82.

Shatner, 90, is set to become the oldest person ever to go to space, and will hit weightlessness in zero gravity for about four minutes.

His fellow passenger, Blue Origin crew member Audrey Powers, told GMA that this trip and opportunity was a long time coming.

"They offered me the opportunity to represent all those great people and sit in the seats, so I could not be more overwhelmed at the opportunity," she said. "I feel an enormous sense of responsibility to represent this team."

For his part, Shatner joked to GMA's T.J. Holmes that he's not thinking of his trip as inspiring others.  "No!" he said to laughs. "I'm taking it as an experience!"

Shatner said he expects plenty of Captain Kirk references as the world watches him and the crew in flight.

"Actually, I haven't heard 'Shatner' in a long time," he said with a laugh.

New Shepard's 18th mission, NS-18, has targeted liftoff for October 13, at 8:30 a.m. CT from Launch Site One in West Texas.
