Casting Call for Clinton Biopic (young Hillary romance with ex-Gov. Bill Weld? freep this poll!!)
Boston Herald ^ | January 8, 2013 | Gayle Dee

Posted on 01/08/2013 12:47:43 PM PST by drewh

Forget Anastasia Steele, the hottest guessing game from the Beltway to Hollywood is who will play a young Hillary Clinton and hubby Bill in a new flick about the ’70s-era romance between the young, ambitious Washington lawyer and a down home Arkansas boy with big political ambitions.

But here at the Track, we’re all about who will play ex-Gov. Bill Weld. Because, according to the screenwriter, there is a scene in which Hillary — the youngest lawyer on the House Judiciary Committee — engages in “office flirtation” with co-counsel Weld.

We’re all worked up picturing the young Hill — a hippie chick out of Wellesley College with coke-bottle glasses, wild out-of-control hair and a weird ’70s wardrobe — getting all steamy with the rangy redheaded Harvard blueblood as they plot to impeach Richard Nixon.

As for Hillary, the interwebs are awash in speculation over who will be cast in that choice role. Leading the pack is “Gangster Squad” sweetheart Emma Stone, followed in no particular order by Jennifer Lawrence, Claire Danes, Kristen Stewart and Scarlett Johansson.

Obviously, the pundits have not watched Anne Hathaway’s big screen breakthrough “The Princess Diaries” in some time, because she nails the early Hillary look there.

Oh, baby ... Obstruction of justice! Pant, pant, high crimes and misdemeanors!

You get the picture BTW, “Rodham,” was chosen as one of the top 10 unproduced scripts on this year’s Black List, an annual poll of more than 300 film execs on their favorite screenplays. It is in production at Temple Hill Entertainment, the company that brought the “Twilight” saga to the big screen.

I would write in Helen Thomas if she were available, or that hag from Alaska.

Charles Durning would have been perfect for Chelsea’s daddy. According to rumours one first draft of the script has a scene where Weld gets a ‘Lewinsky’ from Shrillary in a conference room

there is a scene in which Hillary — the youngest lawyer on the House Judiciary Committee

Except she wasn't a lawyer. The smartest woman in the World couldn't pass the DC bar exam 3 times in a row and that's why she had to leave capitol hill.

As everyone on FR knows I saw the woman buck nekkid way back in the 70s ~ puking up wine and who knows what under my apartment door ~ just lying there puking and puking.

About 1 AM or so.

20 years later her hubby, Bill Clinton, who I had met earlier on that fateful nekkidness day with her (introduced by the lady who rented that apartment) ~ anyway, Billzo was out front a Jerry's pizza down the street from the Demo presidential campaign headquarters and he's squeezing one of the Richmond Highway prostitutes up against the inside door of a black pick up truck, and he sensed I was driving down the road and he turned around ~ saw me, smiled and waved!

He used to go play golf at Fort Belvoir ~ so he had to go by my office.

Besides being unable to pass the bar, she had to leave the Watergate Committee because she was fired for being an unethical liar: http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2008/04/shocking_revelations_about_hil.html

I’m sure glad you said that! (I don’t do movies after about 1974) & didn’t pay attention to who the actors were on tv, either. (We quit tv 6+ years ago)
All the propaganda (Lincoln, Django, this latest tripe from Oliver Stone, etc) must not be workin’ as well as they hoped. Billary *always* nets a positive /s.
Sheesh.

I have heard of only 2 of those women named as possible picks to play Hitlery. Wouldn’t know either one if I saw them though. I guess that the only time I become familiar with the name of an actor or an actress is when they do something to get themselves covered on the news.

It may be difficult to find an actress with ‘Thunder-Thighs’.
