Debra Messing Reacts to Nicole Kidman Playing Lucille Ball, Campaigns for the Role

Debra Messing clearly wants to play Lucille Ball in the upcoming movie being made about the icon’s life, though Nicole Kidman has reportedly landed the role.

The Emmy-winning actress took to Twitter on Monday night (January 11) and reacted to all of the love she has been getting from fans after the news was announced.

Debra seemed like a perfect choice for the role as she already gave an impeccable performance as Lucille during an episode of Will & Grace‘s final season.

One fan tweeted saying that they’re choose to believe that Debra was unavailable for the project. She responded by saying, “Oh no, I’m available.”

Another fan tweeted a quote that Debra said last year about how she used to say, “I would not even touch that. Like she is untouchable.” In response to that, Debra said, “Ummmmmm, I changed my mind. 😜.”

The upcoming movie will be set during one production week of I Love Lucy which was a Monday table read through Friday audience filming schedule. It will focus on when Lucy and Desi face a crisis that could end their careers and another that could end their marriage. Javier Bardem is in talks to play Desi Arnaz and the movie will be written and directed by Aaron Sorkin.
