We've been wondering which lucky actress would nab this role ever since the project was announced back in January!
But pre-production on the upcoming Hillary Clinton biopic titled Rodham, which will focus on the the former Secretary of State during her younger years as a lawyer in Washington in the '70s, is in full swing, and there are reportedly quite a few Hollywood starlets gunning hard for the role!
In fact, according to director James Ponsoldt, he and his team are going to have the unpleasant task of picking between Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Chastain and Amanda Seyfried!
"They're all wonderful actresses. We're very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We're in an enviable position. Regardless of people's political affiliation or how they feel about Hillary Clinton, you don't find people who question the quality of her intelligence or her drive. I want a wonderful actress who could embody that."
And as far as we're concerned, each of those lovely ladies HAS that…as well as supreme talent!
This is going to be a TOUGH choice to make! We do NOT envy him!
What do U think?? Which actress would U like to see play Hillary Clinton?!
