Jessica Chastain To Go From The Guy That Killed Osama To Marilyn Monroe

Monday, April 28 by
With that hair color, I'm politely calling this an "inspired" choice.  

Jessica Chastain, having made a name for herself as a bit of a hard-ass in Zero Dark Thirty, will be skewing a little more feminine (one would think) in Blonde, as she will play Marilyn Monroe in the biopic.

The fact that Chastain has red hair has not escaped my attention, and one can only hope that the producers will get ahead of this issue with wigs, dyes, or perhaps some sort of ping-pong ball suit and Andy Serkis.

Blonde has been a passion project of director Andrew Dominik, who made a name for himself with The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, and then sullied that name a little with Killing Them Softly. The part was originally offerd to Naomi Watts, but considering Watts had absolutely nothing to do with the assassination of Osama bin Laden, it was quickly take away from her.
