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…
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.
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…
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!
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).
