Carey Mulligan to play Hilary Clinton?

In News by Alex Moss Editor

Carey Mulligan, currently giving Leonardo DiCaprio sleepless nights in The Great Gatsby, is apparently the leading candidate to take on the role of Hilary Clinton in the biopic Rodham.  The film will be directed by Smashed’s James Ponsoldt and will follow young lawyer Hilary Rodham Clinton on the committee overseeing Richard Nixon’s impeachment all the while trying to keep her professional career separate from her romance with future President Bill Clinton.  Mulligan is yet to sign a deal but it seems she has moved to the front of a wanted list that has seen the likes of Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone up for the role.  Mulligan will next be seen in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis before heading to Hold On To Me with Robert Pattinson.  Source – The Hollywood Reporter
