Being foreign born may keep Carey Mulligan from ever becoming president, but it won't stop her from playing a possible future one!
The Great Gatsby star is in talks to portray Hillary Clinton in the upcoming biopic Rodham!
Carey is a surprising choice, not only because of her British accent but because she wasn't even on the short list!
But sources say the Oscar-nominated star is director James Ponsoldt's first choice, above Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and Amanda Seyfried!
That's some stiff competition for the role of the young Hillary!
Though Carey does have some experience in a pantsuit!
