Many yelled, “Her?” after learning that Nicole Kidman was in talks to play Lucille Ball in an upcoming Amazon Studios film by Aaron Sorkin called Being the Ricardos. We all know Nicole is a big fan of wigs, but is there a pile of hair red enough and curly enough to successfully transform her into Lucy? That is the question. But it’s a question Lucy’s own daughter Lucie Arnaz tells us we can stop asking, because she thinks Nicole will do a great job as Lucille Ball.
Debra Messing Is Disappointed That Nicole Kidman Is In Talks To Play Lucille Ball In An Aaron Sorkin Movie
Anybody with eyeballs and ears knows there’s only one red-haired actress working today who has the acting chops, box office draw and the air of prestige about her required to play an American icon like Lucille Ball and that woman is Debra Messing. Everybody says this all the time. It’s all you ever hear about these days. However, according to Deadline, Nicole Kidman is in talks to play Lucille in an upcoming feature film from the undisputed King of Screwball, Aaron Sorkin. Javier Bardem is in talks to play Lucy’s husband, Desi Arnez. I didn’t know it was even possible to get a prestige project off the ground without first running it by Debra, let alone one featuring a role she was born to play! Debra, understandably, feels she’s been overlooked.
Coronavirus begat Gal Gadot asking the Tone Deaf Avengers to Imagine a world where irony does not exist. Not to be outshone, for the occasion of the Black Lives Matter movement, we will be subjected to a barrage of actors emoting about racism while serving black and white Stanislavsky turtleneck Inside The Actors Studio earnestness. In a video for a new initiative called I Take Responsibility, “a cadre of stars staring directly into cameras as they pledge to take responsibility for how they’ve perpetuated racism or allowed it to go on in their presence.” (via The Hollywood Reporter). But don’t get too excited, nobody gets too specific. But we do get to hear Justin Theroux take responsibility for “every not so funny joke,” something you’ll never hear from me! #ITakeNoResponsibilityWhatsoever
The Will & Grace revival, or whatever you want to call it, finished up its final season on Thursday––fourteen years after its original ending––and for some, the move is bittersweet. For others, not so much. In addition to leaving their characters behind for good, Debra Messing and Megan Mullally can also put an end to the greatest acting of their respective careers because neither has to continue pretending to like the other one!
Megan Mullally Won’t Be In All The Episodes Of The Last Season Of “Will & Grace” Because Of A Possible Feud With Debra Messing
The Will & Grace reboot is about to get far less fabulous with the news that Megan Mullally is going to be MIA for a couple episodes in the current, and final, season. But at least it’s for the second best reason: An unspoken feud! The best reason, of course, would be a public feud complete with a red carpet cat fight, but I guess we’ll take what we can get. TVLine reports that rumored friction between Megan and her co-star Debra Messing prompted Megan to take a temporary leave of absence from the upcoming 11th season.
Debra Messing can check her battle with Susan Sarandon at the goddamn door because there is another fiery-redhead after her ass and his name is Donald Trump. Granted his redhead is significantly thinner than Susan’s, but still. After Debra and Trump got into a pissing match on Twitter because she was trying to out people using publicly available information, he, of course, had to then continue to slap at her so that every ounce of attention could be gained from it. Didn’t you know that America’s receding economy will be saved by fighting with Debra Messing on Twitter? Honey, read an economics book. Get educated.
