The extreme curiosity in and sure excessive rankings from Sunday evening’s “60 Minutes” interview with Stormy Daniels — some 21 million viewers had been glued to their screens — has us questioning once we will see the film (or TV film, or play, or perhaps a Broadway musical)? The weather of the story are all there: An grownup movie star, a sleazy pol, a lodge assignation, a bit of spanking and the promise of a profession on . . . actuality tv. What might be extra American?
However who can play Stormy? Clearly, it’s a multifaceted half demanding braveness and an imposing physique. Daniels claims to be 39, as many people do, however even when she’s on the incorrect facet of 40, there are just a few Hollywood actresses able to rise to the event:
Anne HathawayBefore she was the tragic waif from “Les Misérables,” Hathaway was the frisky, pissed off cowgirl spouse of repressed homosexual cowboy Jake Gyllenhaal in “Brokeback Mountain.” She should be dying to interrupt out of her good-girl picture. Enjoying Stormy can be the proper probability. Together with her huge brown eyes and pure charisma, Hathaway may make audiences consider that Stormy was the president’s pawn — and win them over as she turned the tables.
Lindsay LohanJames Watkins / BACKGRIDLindsay LohanStormy Daniels stands out as the position that resurrects Lohan’s profession as soon as and for all. She has the flowing romance-novel hair and train-wreck demeanor, inviting audiences to surprise: Will she actually pull it off? Will this porn star actually convey down POTUS? Regardless of her many reversals of fortune, Lohan nonetheless has her followers who need her to make a giant comeback.
Patricia ArquetteMany ladies determine with the Oscar-winning Arquette, whose performances embody the tv present “Medium” and the movie “Boyhood.” Naturally sympathetic and delightful, she would convincingly seduce a high-powered businessman and get the viewers to root for her when his thugs tried to purchase her silence later.
Mila KunisThe attractive “Dangerous Mothers” star is one other actress with huge brown eyes and a seductive demeanor. Dye her hair blond (is Stormy’s ‘do pure?) and he or she may sit down in entrance of an Anderson Cooper-type and dish concerning the president’s peccadilloes with the perfect of them.
Kat DenningsHer flip because the ballsy waitress on the CBS sitcom “2 Broke Women” makes Dennings candidate for Daniels’ position. Her forthright method and blunt sexuality may simply persuade an formidable politician to commit an indiscretion he’s more likely to overlook.
