Blondes, Elisha Cuthbert in "The Forgotten"

"A few months ago it was reported that Scarlett Johansson was leading a list of actress under consideration to play Marilyn Monroe in director Simon Curtis' biopic, My Week with Marilyn. Kate Hudson, Amy Adams and Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) were also mentioned as possible contenders for the role.Production Weekly has now learned that Johansson is out of the running and that its Williams who is in-talks with Curtis to top line the movie, set to begin lensing in June, 2010.My Week will be based on the diary of Colin Clark, an employee of Laurence Olivier, who looked after Monroe when she came to London to film Olivier's "The Prince and the Showgirl" in 1957. Although Colin was technically considered the third assistant director, his unofficial role was to keep Monroe out of Olivier's way". Source: www.cinemaspy.com

I am convinced Michelle Williams will do justice to the role of Norma Jean if she finally accepts the role proposal, but at a pure physical appearance level, my idea of a translation on-screen of the mythical Marilyn would suit better by other actresses, for me Jaime King or Elisha Cuthbert have that "bombshell ingenu├ęs" look more accused than Michelle does.

Her first episode is slated to air in February. The Forgotten recently received an additional five-episode order from ABC". Source: www.televisionaryblog.com
