Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan has managed to book herself an actual TV job between all those court appearances.

Um, sort of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the troubled actress will read the top 10 list on 'The Late Show With David Letterman' on Thursday night. It's not exactly acting, but if it means that Lohan's in front of an actual TV camera instead of a paparazzi lens, we'll take it.

Lohan was charged with grand theft last week for allegedly stealing a necklace worth $2,500 from a Los Angeles jeweler.
