It's been reported that the Carol actress is set to star as comedy legend Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic!
The untitled film will be produced by Ball's children, Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr., and will follow the comedienne through her 20-year marriage with I Love Lucy co-star Desi Arnaz!

Set to pen the script is Aaron Sorkin, who is no stranger to big budget biopics. Sorkin won an Oscar for his Mark Zuckerberg script The Social Network, and he also has a Steve Jobs film coming out later this year!
Ball has previously been the subject of two TV movies — 2003's Lucy starring Rachel York, and 1991's Lucy & Desi starring Frances Fisher!
We don't want to get our hopes up, but we can smell the award buzz already!

He also fielded all sorts of other questions though, but one of the most important was this: Will we ever get a "dislike" button?
On this most important matter, Zuck said:
Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, and while the jury is still out on how "good" FB actually is, it's allowed him to do some real good in the world.
Well, mainly, it brought him TONS of money which he sometimes donates to charitable causes for the betterment of mankind.
The Zuck and his wife Priscilla have just donated $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation, the CDC's charity.
Leave it to him to outdo everyone!
Bill Gates was challenged by Mark Zuckerberg to get involved in the Ice Bucket Challenge, and even though he planned on donating money to curing ALS, he had to make his mark on the movement.
So, the billionaire designed and built an apparatus for the grandaddy of all ice bucket challenges!
Then, he nominated Ryan Seacrest, Chris Anderson from TED, and Elon Musk!
Hopefully Ryan does his shirtless! LOLz!
We’re really impressed with not only Mr. Gates’ generosity, but also his ability to go the extra mile! Things just got tougher for these challengers.
