CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – What actress can you picture playing a young Hillary Clinton? A biopic about the former First Lady and Secretary of State’s biopic, dubbed “ Rodham ,” is zeroing in on actresses to play the Chappaqua resident, according to The Huffington Post .
While the movie is still in the early stages of casting, some believe Scarlett Johansson to be the frontrunner. Other actresses rumored to be vying for the role of Clinton include Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Amanda Seyfried (“Les Miserables”), and Reese Witherspoon (“Mud”).
“Rodham” chose its director last month in James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now”) for a script that will focus on Clinton’s early years, her romance with her husband President Bill Clinton and the beginning stages of her own career in politics.
