Hollywood execs are mulling a script about a young Hillary Clinton torn between her boyfriend and her job, and we asked readers for suggestions on how to cast it. (Our picks: Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hardy.) Once you got the silly stuff out of your systems (Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, ha ha), your ideas were worth debating:
Michelle Williams: Maybe a little too ethereal, but would be interesting to cast opposite her real-life squeeze Jason Segel, one of our prospects to play Bill.
Christina Ricci: Better. Has the intensity for the role, but maybe we need more of a rising star, like. . .
Elizabeth Olsen: Mary-Kate and Ashley’s poised younger sister, the one who can act.
Ryan Reynolds: Lots of votes for this one, but isn’t he too pretty to play Bill? Would have to gain some weight.
Dan Feuerriegel: We hadn’t heard of him either! But the “Spartacus” co-star has the right face — and would allow producers to scrimp on his paycheck while splurging on an A-list actress.
