Lohan's brother lands film role

LOS ANGELES: Lindsay Lohan's younger brother Michael is plotting to follow in his famous sister's footsteps - after landing his first major movie role.

Michael's acting career started and ended after he briefly joined the former Disney darling on screen in her 1998 movie The Parent Trap - as a lost boy at her character's summer camp.

The 21 year old is now taking a break from school in New York to make a serious step toward Hollywood stardom.

At a press conference for her new shoe line, Lohan matriarch Dina accidentally confirmed her son is working on a new film.

She told WENN, "Lindsay's brother Michael is on academic scholarship at Ithaca (college). He's also doing a movie."
