Who’s the Best Hillary Clinton: Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Amanda Seyfried, or Jessica Chastain?

As far as we’re concerned, Amy Poehler is the only performer who can effectively don the garb of one Hillary Clinton. But somehow, the Saturday Night Live vet has not made the short list of actresses in consideration to play the former Secretary of State in a developing biopic Rodham… a project that earned attention not long ago when details from its absolutely bonkers script hit the Internet. As The Independent lists the potential Hillarys as Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried, Reese Witherspoon, and Jessica Chastain, we’re wondering which of the lot would be the best pick for the 26-year-old politician…

SCARLETT JOHANSSON
PROS: She has a history of fighting tyranny (a la The Avengers).
CONS: All those Woody Allen movies can’t bode well for swaying the moderates.

REESE WITHERSPOON
PROS: She can handle the drawl needed to attract the Southern vote.
CONS: Well, the recent escalation of her criminal activity isn’t exactly the stuff presidential campaigns wish for…

AMANDA SEYFRIED
PROS: She’s actually right around 26, the age at which the biopic pinpoints Hillary.
CONS: Call us crazy, but we think it’ll be hard to accept the Secretary of State as the same lass who belted in Mamma Mia!

JESSICA CHASTAIN
PROS: Wanna be president? It probably helps to have taken down the most wanted terrorist in the world.
CONS: The hair, I guess (we’ll be honest, she’s our frontrunner).

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
