Here’s Our Dream Cast for the Linda and Monica Movie
Let’s be honest: When the cast for American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson was announced, it seemed like a meme-inducing Lifetime channel disaster. At first glance, a cast that included Selma Blair, John Travolta and David Schwimmer was a source of mockery. But instead, it became a force of nature that netted Emmys and Golden Globes for stars Sterling K. Brown, Courtney B. Vance and Sarah Paulson. (Get a middle initial, would ya?)
Amazon Studios recently acquired the script Linda and Monica—a detailed account of the friendship between Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky, by Flint Wainess—and will be turning it into a movie. Produced by the same people who did Fences, the film will bring to life the 1998 scandal that saw Tripp acting as the whistle blower who brought the affair between Lewinsky and then-President Bill Clinton to light.
Inspired by the creative casting employed by Ryan Murphy for The People vs OJ Simpson, we thought we’d dream up a few actors we’d love to see in this sure-to-be-as-juicy movie.
