Does Jessica Chastain do a good Hillary Clinton impersonation? She could, right? The gorg little fireball is quite the chameleon, after all, innit? ... Alas, it looks like we might just never know the answer to that question.
Per The Huffington Post, the "Zero Dark Thirty" star shot down rumors of her involvement with James Ponsoldt's Hillary Clinton biopic "Rodham" on Saturday, responding to a gaggle of British journos who brought up her rumored contention for the part with, "No, that's actually not true. I found out about the project online, but, yeah, there's a lot of stuff out there."
To be fair, that "stuff" didn't exactly materialize from thin air.
Ponsoldt himself was quoted to respond to rumors of Chastain and Amanda Seyfried, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson being among the top four vying for the part. "They're all wonderful actresses," he said. "We're very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We're in an enviable position." Now, mind you, there was some artfully vague phrasage going on there, but still.
Per HuffPo, the shortlist has now been narrowed down to the three blondies, none of which have spoken up about the picture ... yet.
So, which of the three knockouts looks close enough to the part (bear in mind: this is about the former Secretary of State's much younger days volleying her political aspirations and her love life with you-know-who)?
... Or does the "Les Miserables" beauty Amanda Seyfried deserve a shot?
... Or could it be time for Scarlett Johansson to get all political on us again?
You decide (hit the comments with your two cents)!
