7Does This Look Like The Face of Hillary Rodham Clinton To You?

"Hitchcock" New York Premiere - Arrivals

Alright, awesome news, people: there’s a Hillary Clinton biopic in the works. Rodham will follow Hils from 1974, back when she was a lawyer in Washington. Sweet, right? Well, a great woman needs a great actress to play her, and a few have been shortlisted for the part. Hint: all of them are pretty terrible.

Feast your eyes on this: Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried, Jessica Chastain and Reese Witherspoon have all apparently been considered for the part. Which of these would be any good at it? If you answered “none”, ding ding ding! You’re a winner!

From The Independent:

Rodham – about the younger years of the former First Lady and senator – is due out some time around the 2016 presidential election, in which Clinton might be a canditate. It will focus on 1974, when she was a Washington lawyer.

Among those in the running to play the 26-year-old Clinton are Amanda Seyfried, who starred in Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson, most recently seen playing Janet Leigh in Hitchcock.

Rodham director James Ponstoldt said: “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.”

Oh, man. Please keep searching, Ponstoldt. I don’t particularly mind any of these actresses on their own, but as Hillary Clinton? Nah. What do you think?

  1. Hillary says:

    How about Kevin James?

  2. Chaz says:

    Farrah Abraham would be my choice. She certainly doesn’t look like Hillary, but is every bit as vapid as the former First Lady!

  3. St. Louis Chick says:

    Have Chelsea do it. There’s at least a damn resemblance! Love her or hate her, think she is a political genius or not….she’s a tough old dame who could probably kick anybody’s ass in a street fight. Don’t pick a cutesy girl to play her FFS.

  4. Chuck says:

    How about Lena Dunham? Perfect for Hillary – a current NY hipster doofus wannabe with shit for brains.

  5. mkyarwood says:

    Vapid? Jesus. MOVING ON, ScarJo has the closest face out of those choices but is the worst actress ever. How about Chloe Sevigny? People always associate her with ‘indie’ but she’s got the chops, looks young for her age.
