Good Luck Beating Catherine For the Role Angie, She Already Is Elizabeth Taylor!
The latest Hollywood blockbuster in development will be about the love life of one of Tinseltown’s most famous celebrities, Elizabeth Taylor, and already there are two major actresses duking it out for the lead — Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta Jones! The Telegraph reports, “Hollywood sources told the US TV show Entertainment Tonight that both Jolie, 35, and Zeta Jones, 40, had expressed an interest in playing Taylor.”
As for the male lead, Elizabeth’s long time love and husband twice over Richard Burton, the names being mentioned are Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell, and Clive Owen.
The biggest hurdle in Angelina’s way however is that Catherine Zeta-Jones already IS Elizabeth Taylor. The jewels, the fur, the lifestyle, the only thing the Catherine and Angie share is the Hollywood hunk partner!
Should Angelina not manage to snag the role she can take solace in the fact that she has already scored Elizabeth’s most iconic role ever — Cleopatra!
