Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Chastain, Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried All Want to Play Hillary Clinton

According to The Sunday Times, actresses Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Chastain, Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried have each expressed interest in taking on the role of the former First Lady-turned-Secretary of State.
“They’re all wonderful actresses. We’re very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We’re in an enviable position,” Rodham director James Ponsoldt said on Sunday.
For those who were hoping for Meryl Streep, that now-famous selfie will have to do.
