    Was on teh Blacklist I think in 2012. It's being directed by James Ponsoldt who directed Smashed and the upcoming Spectacular Now.

    Right now here are the alleged frontrunners to play Hillary

    I think all of them would be good. I think Seyfried looks the most like a 27 year old Hillary, but I think Witherspoon would be the best choice. CHastain is great but I think Witherspoon might be a better choice for this. Im kind of surprised Jennifer Lawrence isnt on this short list if it's true

    Witherspoon is definitely who I'd choose, and I'm not even a fan of hers.

    If any of them get the part, they're going to have to ugly themselves up like Charlize Theron did in that one film.

    I just don't see what's good or great about Hilary that she deserves a film about her.

    Bunch of political BS to hype her up if she really does decide to run for President.

    I guarantee whoever plays her will at least be nominated for Best Actress. The Academy will eat this up.

    I could see all of them doing well. Though Scarlett would be the weakest on that list.

    I hope there's nudity.

    Regarding looks, Witherspoon and Seyfried would be a lock. Though I'd probably go for Chastain if I had to make a final decision.

    Whichever of these women gets the role, I bet Bill will offer to play himself.

    The looks I'm not worried about. I'd say Witherspoon or Seyfried because their facial structure are more similar. But like any actor playing a historical figure, it doesn't matter how close it is, it still won't match. So focus more on the make up, hair, wardrobe and performance the actor must exude to portray the person. And Chastain is certainly capable of doing such a thing, not because we've seen it yet, but because of her acting prowess that we've come to see.

    Right. Give it to the person who thinks she is above the law. She is way too old for this.

    I'd personally give it to Seyfried. She's old enough, has a nice enough resemblance, and hasn't done something so big before. But the question is, can she pull it off? Then again, these are the years of Clinton we're not as familiar with seeing so maybe she can fit with this vision and time they're going with.

    Witherspoon is the probably the closest.

    I say go for an unknown. But of those four, Reese seems appropriate considering her recent arrested, that awesome police video and the general consensus that she's a pain in the ass to deal with.

    Casting aside, I don't understand why this movie would exist? What story is being told?

    I think it revolves around HIlary Clinton and her being one of the youngest lawyers involved in the Watergate scandal. And apparently she was fired for unethical behavior. And as the Collider article states there will also be some stuff about her relationship with young Bill Clinton.

    So I think there is some story there

    They want another DDL Lincoln type deal, that's why. They rarely get unknowns to play popular figures in history unless they surround them with like an insanely stellar cast.

    I hope they show how Hillary was on the board of Wal-Mart.

    None of these women are good for the role, in my opinion. :csad:

    Though based on looks, Scarlett is a lock. Her eyes are eerily uncanny. Throw some glasses on her and it's almost remarkable.
