The Hillary Clinton biopic is actually happening….
When it was announced that a biopic about Hillary Clinton’s early years in the political game is going to be made, names like ScarJo, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone were thrown around as possibilities to play young Hillary. Jessica Chastain quickly said that she’s not going to play young Hillary so Bill Clinton can stop texting her to see if she needs a little private coaching to really get into the part (and by that he means he wants to get into her parts). So that leaves ScarJo and Emma Stone, but The Hollywood Reporter says that neither of them are the director’s first choice. THR’s source says that director James Ponsoldt is meeting with Carey Mulligan about playing Hillary in his movie Rodham.
Apparently, the producer and James really want Carey and Carey really wants to play HillPuppy. THR describes Rodham like this:
The indie drama portrays Rodham as a young lawyer on the committee involved in President Richard Nixon’s impeachment, and her juggling a diverging career path with her unresolved feelings for future president Bill Clinton.
If Rodham is 2 full hours of young Hillary looking sad, confused, scared, cold and vulnerable (you know, like she really has to pee, but she’s not going to because she’s expecting the police to call to tell her if they found her lost puppy or not), then Carey Mulligan will nail it!
The Brits are taking all the American parts! They took Batman, Superman, Lincoln and now they’re taking Hillary. The only way to even things out is if Rojo Caliente plays Prince Hot Ginge in a biopic (please somebody make this happen).
And I said this in Afternoon Crumbs the other day, but I’m going to say it again. The only person who should play Hillary Clinton is La Pequeña.
Hell, just release that video as the official Hillary Clinton biopic and call it a day.
