Diane Lane will play the role of Hillary Clinton in the NBC miniseries about the U.S. State ex-secretary. A new four-hour TV series which will focus on Clinton political career from 1998 to the present.
Still, it’s not sure who will play the role of Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama. Remember that Bill Clinton said that he would choose George Clooney to play his role. A clue, but not very likely.
NBC has just announced that Courtney Hunt (Frozen River) is writing the script. It starts with the life of Hillary Clinton in the White House, while her husband is in his second term as President. During the following years, Hillary would eventually become U.S. senator, presidential candidate and finally, Secretary of State.
This new production tries to follow the success marked by Game Change, the HBO miniseries about Republican Sarah Palin, starred Julianne Moore, and they think it will be released in 2016.
**Diane Lane is an American actress. She has appeared in some fantastic movies, including the 2002 film Unfaithful (Academy Award, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations). She has also starred in The Outsiders, The Perfect Storm,Under the Tuscan Sun, Cinema Verite, and Man of Steel.
Congratulations, Diane. You deserved this important role!
