Lifetime has cast Lindsay Lohan to play Hillary Clinton in a biopic entitled, “Hill and Bill.”
Lindsay Lohan will get her chance to play one of the greatest female political figures in history in a biopic for Lifetime. The network confirmed months of speculation when it reportedly announced that Lohan was officially cast as Hillary Clinton in the Lifetime Original Movie “Hill & Bill.”
Fresh off the tremendous success of her Lifetime biopic, “Liz & Dick,” Lohan is thrilled to be able to play the Secretary of State and former New York Senator. The movie is set to begin shooting in March in Los Angeles, the network reportedly said in a statement. The actor playing Bill Clinton has not been announced, but Bill Clinton has suggested either Brad Pitt or Leonardo Di Caprio.
There is some concern that Lindsay looks a little bit too old for the role, but Lifetime producers said that they are working on getting Lindsay in shape and a source at Lifetime told WWN, “we have great makeup people here.”
Hill & Bill met on the campus of Yale University when they were attending the law school.
Bill had multiple affairs and Hillary seemed to “look the other way” but the true story will reportedly come out in the biopic. “The public is going to be shocked when they learn what went on in the private lives of Hill and Bill,” said a producer.
Lifetime has not cast the 12-15 women playing Bill’s mistresses, but Melissa McCarthy has been cast as Monica Lewinsky. Denzel Washington has signed on to play Barack Obama.
Lohan was ecstatic to learn that she should be playing Hillary Clinton. “I have always admired and had enormous respect for Hillary Clinton. She was not only an incredible mind but a sexy woman, too. I am very honored to have been asked to play this role,” Lohan, 26, reportedly said in a statement.
For Lohan, the role could help her continue to repair her damaged reputation in the entertainment industry due to her string of arrests and prison stays stemming from a drunk driving conviction in 2007 and a theft charge in 2011.
