Hillary Clinton Movie Role: Scar Jo, Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, Amanda Seyfried All Linked
Gossip Cop.com ^ | 1:45 pm, May 27th, 2013

Posted on 05/27/2013 11:20:55 AM PDT by drewh

A movie about the young Hillary Clinton is in the works, and some big names are being reported as possibly filling the role — although none of the actresses is actually attached to the project.

Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Chastain, and Amanda Seyfried are supposedly among the stars “in the running” for Rodham, which portrays Clinton as a Washington lawyer in the 1970s, according to The Independent.

But it’s important to note that while director James Ponstoldt tells the outlet “they’re all wonderful actresses,” absolutely no casting decisions have been made.

“We’re very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles,” Ponstoldt is quoted as saying. “We’re in an enviable position.”

He adds, “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.

I wonder if the low-information voter will, at some point, begin to see through this kind of Hollywood propaganda....

Mrs. Clinton 2016!
“What difference, at this point, does it make?!?!?? RAHR!”

Vince Foster is in no position to question either.

There haven’t been too many movies in which the leading character is a liar and a law-breaker but this movie should get her elected, given the current voter mindset.

I recommend a Chicago native; Megan Cavanagh.

She played Marla Hooch in "A League of Their Own". Born in 1060, she's a little old to be playing a "young" person, but Hillary was always at least 35 years old, wasn't she?

Better casting would be Jodie Foster, Jane Lynch, Portia de Rossi, or, better yet, Rosie O’Donnell.

Based on his mug shots, they shoulda gone with Nick Nolte in the role of Hillary.

Hollywood pimping for Democrat candidates again (2016). Hollywood and the media have as much credibility as Bernie Madoff.

I can’t believe anyone would be interested in watching a propaganda piece about “young” Mrs. Slick Willie. I wonder who will play der Slickmeister. Jaime Foxx or Kanje West.

People like the Clintons dressed like that.
I give more credit to authentic countercultural hippie
chicks with granny glasses, bare feet, long Indian print
cotton dresses, and the smell of patchouli oil wafting from them. The Clintons’ garb was kind of faux-counterculture,
about as out of place as the big city cop’s hippie “costume” they had to wear when they
infiltrated the anti-war demonstrations.

If they try the romance genre then the Monica Lewinsky incident would make a good end of the second act.

If they were serious about looking for actresses to play Hillary, there was one, actually much better looking than Hillary, who could have played her in Primary Colors, the movie made from the book by “Anonymous” (Joe Klein)
Her name was Rebecca DeMornay. Like I said, much better looking, but with a headband on, you might not have been able to tell the difference.

I wonder if the writers are going to mention the fact that Hillary's boss on the Watergate Committee
thought she was a liar and a lousy lawyer and refused to give her a recommendation.

It will probably be a White-Water-Wash.

We’ve already written the screenplay;

“A Wellesley Wench - The Saga Continues”

I don’t even want to think about the part of the movie where she introduces the Slicskter to cigars.

Wow, man...dig those tats. Or are they varicose veins?

Sad freaking topic for a movie...because an actual written biography would document horrific incompetence,lifelong craving for power, arrogance, childrens “rights”, belief in genetic predetermination ala Margaret Sanger (neo-socialist)/eugenics. A lesbian/amoralist who had no portfolio without her serial rapist husband Bill, and a singularly unpleasant stupid mean woman. The next agenda for a president— a matriarchal society (the last president being a failed male result of a male named matriarch who abandoned him to her parents). Can’t wait.

Emma Thompson is a dead ringer for Killary. With the appropriate make down (not make up :).

Check her out in Men Black III. I think they purposely made her up to look like Killary.

“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.

Well, Director Ponstoldt, I question everything about Hillary except her treachery. And if you'd get out of your liberal echo chamber and into the real world you'd find that most people of real accomplishment have the same opinion of Mrs. Clinton as a person of limited intellect who accomplished nothing on her own.

As far as actresses being considered for the witch's role, I promise that whoever is cast will never have my patronage again.

Unless, of course, Francis the Talking Mule's rear end is cast to play Hillary!
