Angelina Jolie Wins the Elizabeth Taylor Role

In I heard... on August 4, 2010 at 8:14 am

Angelina Jolie has won the fight against Catherine Zeta Jones to play Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor in the Mike Nichols directed biopic. Jolie said she was “honoured” to play Taylor, adding: “I’m fascinated by her and the mystery and mystique that have always surrounded her. We haven’t got a script yet but as soon as we have something good enough we’ll make it.” Slightly disappointed, I thought it would have been refreshing to see Zeta-Jones in this adventurous role and personally, I think she resembles Taylor far more than Jolie does. One has to wonder whether Jolie will be able to pile on the pounds to credibly emulate Taylor in her heftier phase during the 70s. However, director Mike Nichols reportedly felt Angelina was the better actress to portray the star and her turbulent love life with Richard Burton. Russell Crowe, Clive Owen and Colin Farrell are lined-up for the role of Burton.

Do you think they made the right choice?
