Just a quick holy minute after stills from The Eyes of Tammy Faye of Jessica Chastain in sequins-embedded Tammy Faye Bakker drag came out, a trailer has been released and it shows the rise and fall of the Bakkers as Evangelical royalty and Tammy Faye’s transformation into a gay icon. The Eyes of Tammy Faye was directed by Michael Showalter and he wrote Wet Hot American Summer, so he knows camp, but TEoTF isn’t full camp, because producers do not want to scare off Oscar voters and want to make sure that next year, Jessica Chastain is holding her OSCUH up high as her fake lashes hold their Best Supporting Actress OSCUH!
Just two days into Pride month, and we’re already getting pictures of Jessica Chastain as the late, great Tammy Faye Bakker in the upcoming biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye. The movie is based on the 2000 documentary of the same name and co-stars Andrew Garfield as that shit-heel Jim Bakker and Sean Penn’s father-in-law Vincent D’Onofrio as Jerry Falwell. People has all the pics, and ya know what? Jessica’s Tammy Faye doesn’t seem to be Nicole Kidman-as-Lucille Ball levels of disaster.
HallelujaHUH?! Andrew Garfield And Jessica Chastain Are Playing Jim And Tammy Faye Bakker In A New Biopic
You’re probably rolling your eyes at me like, “Bitch, shut up, Andrew Garfield can totally pull off Tammy Faye.” But sadly, Andrew Garfield is not slapping a pair of tar-dipped tarantulas from heaven onto his eyes to play Tammy Faye. Jessica Chastain is taking Tammy Faye and Andrew Garfield is taking Jim.
