"Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain among the front-runners to play Hillary Clinton in 'Rodham.'"

"Rodham - about the younger years of the former First Lady and senator..."

"Rodham"... based on a true story. That reminds me: When I was a kid, I thought "Rodan" was based on a true story. Here's the 1957 trailer. I was 6 years old and could not discern the difference between that and the news:



"Nothing escapes this monstrous beast of evil."

With Judd Hirsch as Saul Alinsky!

Geez. Another version of the Wizard of Oz, but this time the Wicked Witch goes to Washington and gets the State Department dropped on her.

Saint Croix said...

Boy, Hollywood never gives up!

In 2008, Diane English tried to give the Hillary campaign a boost by releasing her movie The Women right before the election.

But Obama was already the nominee at that point. Oops!

Saint Croix said...

Reese Witherspoon is perfect. But she has already played Hillary, as an insane high school student.

Who must be stopped!

AprilApple said...

The Hillary! propaganda pimping rolls on.

AllenS said...

I'd rather see David Rodham Gergen play Hillary. He has the most experience.

edutcher said...

How 'bout Paris Hilton?

Her career was built on Daddy's money, too.

Margaret Hamilton is available.

She could do the nude scenes.

caseym54 said...

Can we get Trey Parker to direct?

edutcher said...

PS In "Hot Shots! Part Deux", all the female parts have the middle name "Rodham", as in Hillary Rodham Hussein.

LarsPorsena said...

Lena Dunham isn't in the running?

LarsPorsena said...

Melissa McCarthy unavailable?

AprilApple said...

“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.”

She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that's our thematic focus."

Isn't that wonderful!? Despite what you think about Hillary! and her trail of lies, deceit and "I don't remember" ... Hollywood insists you worship her!

Chip S. said...

Saint Croix said...
Reese Witherspoon is perfect.

Perhaps her recent star turn on police video was really an audition for the role.

edutcher said...

Her drive, no; her intelligence is something else.

She never got anywhere on her own.

Her mendacity got her tossed off the Senate Judiciary Committee (Democrats actually had a couple of scruples back then).

Any place she's ever gone has been on Daddy's money or Hubbo's coattails.

Mitchell the Bat said...

I'll go see it at the movie theater if the concession stand serves cookies and tea.

Chip S. said...

I'll admit I haven't really been paying attention. Heck, I forgot she'd been a Senator.

What's the evidence of her intelligence?

AprilApple said...

Chip. S.
Don't question Hillary's intelligence. It just is!

AprilApple said...

I sure hope the GOP isn't afraid to run endless footage of Hillary making a corrupt Pelosi-esqe ass of herself.

Michael K said...

I wonder who will do the lesbian scenes ? The Enquirer seems to have the goods on Hillary's new book coming out, in more ways than one.

Lesbian love seems to be popular right now. Good timing for Hillary.

I wonder who will play Huma and her "husband."

Michael K said...

"Heck, I forgot she'd been a Senator.

What's the evidence of her intelligence?"

Chuck Hagel.

Martha said...

who will play Jennifer Flowers?

Rusty said...

What's the matter? They couldn't find anybody more boring to make a movie about?

The grasping social climber from Park Ridge Illinois.

Martha said...

I meant Gennifer Flowers

MadisonMan said...

Doesn't Rodan die in a volcano after its mortally wounded mate falls into the self-same volcano? (Been a long time since I watched)

Is that how Hillary, The Movie will end?

William said...

I admire the way Matt Damon is stretching the boundaries for male stars. I think it's time to look beyond gender typecasting. Plus I always felt that the Bourne character was based to some extent on Hillary.......Did anyone beside me tune in to HBO hoping for boobs and blood on Game of Thrones and then discover to their horror a Liberace biopic.

AllenS said...

What brand of cigar will Bill be using?

Albert Arthur said...

Rodham: This could be YOUR PRESIDENT!

Lem said...

An Obama advisor called her a monster back in 08.

Chip S. said...

Remember, this is going to focus on her early years.

Which means soft-core lezzie action as she transitions from Goldwater Girl to Liberal Harridan during her years at an all-women's college.

And finding her beard at Yale Law School, w/ Zach Galafianakis as young Bill Clinton.

Madge would be perfect, finally in her real hair.

And Harry Reems just died, so I guess it's up to Ron Jeremy.

Many would be awaiting life to imitate art.

LOL. Now I want to see it.

Saint Croix said...

Especially if they can work Rodan into the third act.

Aridog said...

Saint Croix .... heck, Hillary and Bill could both be played by Zach Galafianakis in a Dual role portrayal.

David said...

Chip S. said...
Too bad Bea Arthur is dead.

I was thinking Robin Williams.

Saint Croix said...

Aridog, so wrong, so so wrong

Saint Croix said...

oh that hurt

Saint Croix said...

I gotta click on it again!

Saint Croix said...

oooooooohhhhhhhh

LOL

nightmares now

betamax3000 said...

From Wiki:

In the film Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster Rodan slammed into Godzilla at full speed and its chest colliding with Godzilla's head to send the behemoth crashing to the ground.

I'd pay to see Scarlett Johansson as Rodan. Chest colliding indeed.

dc said...

So how much money do the producers expect to lose on this project?

JAL said...

Haha!! Rodan!!!

One of the first movies we watched on our new (used) color TV.

(AA really thought it was news?)

To this day -- really -- we have a family joke about "pink pterodactyls" which originates in Rodan being one of the Million Dollar Movie(s) which played a couple of times weekday evenings on Channel 9 -- WOR-TV out of NYC in the 50s and 60s. ("Were the pterodactyls pink in Dr. Who?")

That, and King Kong ...

JAL said...

Can I predict a bomb on the HRC movie? Doers anyone really care who plays her? (Except the deep blue actress: "OMG!! I got to be HRC!!")

But since her rabid supporters will be financing it, they don't care.

And since HRC isn't actually running yet, it doesn't count as a campaign donation, but what of it showing after she declares?

And will they cover her love affair (figuratively, I presume) with Saul Alinsky, who asked her to intern with his organization (which she declined -- for law school I think)?

You look at the pictures when she and Willie were (whatever) and you know where Chelsea's looks come from (in part, anyway). She's had a little work done.

That said, 5 years ago, she had a little Barbara Stanwyck as Victoria Barkley vibe going, but the humiliation of being a figurehead for those 5 years who's now going to be thrown under the bus for Benghazi killed that.

JAL said...

Rosie O'Donnell?

Another real Scarlett Johansson quote. Although Scarlett Johansson Robot may have added a Word at the End.

JAL said...

Re the pink pterodactyls ...

I should explain that our used color TV (the NBC peacock was so cool back then -- the tail feathers opened) had some trouble with accurate color sometimes and there were days (we watched Rodan numerous times) when Rodan could be somewhat, err, pink.

But it was color TV!

I've always been baffled by claims of Hillary's intelligence too. She seems like the dumb-but-sly white trash kind of woman to me. I've met a few.

The article has two photos that are Johnasson and Chastain, but uses the popular Reese Witherspoon's name in the text to get a story started. It's a PR maker's piece.

I prefer obvious destruction to hidden destruction. I prefer Rodan over Rodham.

Today is Memorial Day.

For as long as I can remember, fighter jets have flown over us at some point every Memorial Day.

Not today.

In Obama's America, the fighter jets have been grounded.

The good news is that the Obama will soon have another tax-payer funded Hollywood Bash at the White House. The guest list will include all the leftwing progressive Hollywood starlets who will play Hillary! in the "Rodham" propaganda piece.

chuck said...

Where do these loony ideas come from? Hillary has got to be one of the most boring people ever raised to prominence by the carnival barkers of the press. Barnum would have charged admission to see the freak, and I might have paid for a freak show, but a serious flick about a vaporous nothing is just bizarre.

Saint Croix said...

If Hillary looked like Scarlett Johansson (It's Suntory Time!), I would be in trouble. Big trouble. You better deny me my right to vote trouble.

Imagine Hillary as a hot girl Satan.

Yes, I believe that is fire coming out of her ass.

I was so scared by the prospect of Hot Hillary that I googled hot socialist babe.

And there are none! Thank God. Okay, there are, but you have to scroll down to find them.

So Citizens United is something Socialist bring up only when its not "their" industry paying for campaigns?

Amartel said...

Okay, why can't Chelsea play her? It's the perfect storm of Shameless Clinton Mediocrity Promotion with just the right touch of authenticity. She's played a political prop before, how tough can it be? And it adds to Chelsea's biography. She's been a Scholar, a TV Personality, a [pseudo]Professor, a Celebrity, a Hedge Fund Whiz, a 9/11 Survivor [was in the vicinity], a Poor Little Rich Girl, AND a Political Prop. Why not a TV Actress?
WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN-WIN!!!

It's good when a corporation boosts a leftist candidate.

El Pollo Raylan said...

When I was a kid I thought Rodan was a sculpture of a deep thinker.

What's the movie going to be called?
National Yenta.

El Pollo Raylan said...

"Rodan" was the name of an artsy band from the 90's. They put out one album (Rusty) that I bought. I dubbed them "Punk Floyd" link

David said...

Hilary's life isn't even based on a true story.

How can the movie be?

Steve Koch said...

Propaganda starting early. Hill is also getting $25 mil to write a book that will reveal that she kissed a girl and liked it.

cubanbob said...

Hilary's life isn't even based on a true story.

A fictional portrayal of a fictional life. On second thought the movie might be ├╝ber cool.

Sam L. said...

Talk about an appropriate last line--perfect blurb for this movie!

Sam L. said...

Not reading but the first 20, and I am surprised! You guys don't like Hillary!

Achilles said...

The subtitle will be "A Life of Lies, Based on a True Story."

And Ron Jeremy would make a perfect Bubba. The more important roles will be to portray Flowers, Lewinsky, Willey and the rest of his harem properly. The blow job, groping, and rape scenes will be epic.

cubanbob said...

viator said...

A little fawning Hillary biopic, some IRS sucker punching the competition, some early and often voting, some fumbling and mumbling GOP - looks like 2016 is in the bag to me.

gadfly said...

Slick Willie will on the movie set to help the actress chosen. Witherspoon is married, so she won't make the cut.

All three are far too glamorous to be Hillary.

I didn't think Billie Jeff had a problem with wedding rings?

Does he have Peyronies ? It has to be authentic. Truth above all.

And of course the humanity.

That movie was awesome. Especially the parts where she would start to fume and go ballistic and the frantic African ululaters start to kick in in the background go off. Yeah, every time I see Hillary go batshit crazy, I hear that ululating in my head. It's the same thing.

Methadras said...

Jay said...

What a joke.

Hillary is a average looking woman on her best day.

I will say this, god help me. But there is a still picture of Hillary all dolled up in a blue dress going to some gala function and she had on her stern face and she looked hot. Dear God I'm melting.
