Diane Lane To Fill Hillary Clinton's Pantsuits For Biopic

It looks like NBC has finally found a suitable doppelgänger for Hillary Clinton. The network announced that Oscar-winning actress Diane Lane will be playing the former Secretary of State and fellow Twitter aficionado. Rumors that Carey Mulligan was slated for the role were buzzing back in June, but were swiftly shut down — and for good reason. Not to push Mulligan to the side, but Lane has the hard-hitting grace that makes Clinton such a knockout when it comes to leadership.
There's no word as to who's playing Bill, or even a solidified release date, for that matter. The script is still in the works, but NBC is hoping to get it out before Hillary announces her 2016 presidential campaign (if she runs at all). But, since Anna Wintour's basically given her the go-ahead, it's very likely to happen, naturally. (E! Online)
