Carey Mulligan In Talks to Play Hillary Clinton in 'Rodham'

Carey Mulligan is reportedly in talks to play the coveted role of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming biopic Rodham, according to THR.

The 28-year-old actress is supposedly now the front-runner on a list of actresses that includes Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain, and Emma Stone. She will have a sit down with the director James Ponsoldt and “both sides are eager for it to work”.

Rodham portrays Hillary as “a young lawyer on the committee involved in President Richard Nixon‘s impeachment, and her juggling a diverging career path with her unresolved feelings for future president Bill Clinton.”

    Emma Stone being on that list is random. Did her people sneak her name in there?

    Didn’t critics called her performance in The Great Gatsby “dead”? If she can’t pulls such a primitive character as Daisy B. what about Hillary Clinton???

    I seriously cannot tell the difference between ANY of her performances to date (the ones I have seen: Gatsby, An Edu, Wall St, Shame, etc). Does Ms Mulligan have a secret potion that she uses on casting directors, directors, and producers? Am I blind to something that is just not there? Can she do anything but that I’m-wringing-my-hands look? She CANNOT act! But she looked very cute in the Gatsby outfits, as did everyone else in the film.

    I think she is very talented. Scarlett and Emma would be ridiculous as they are both mediocre actresses at best. Either Michelle Williams or Carey.

    Let’s hope Carey branches out a little. She’s gotten too specialized.

    Sullen could be mistaken as her middle name.

    With the exception of Chstain it sounds like they just put every well-known blonde actress in their mid-20s to early 30s on the list. According to the The Wrap site the only people ever seriously in the running were Carey Mulligan and Jennifer Lawrence.

    Eh good for Carey but I’m kind of tired of her and her sour face to be honest. She was so lacklustre as Daisy in The Great Gatsby.
