According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cate Blanchett is already on board to play Lucille Ball in the authorized biopic, with Aaron Sorkin tentatively attached as scriptwriter.
Ball was the brains behind the classic TV sitcom “I Love Lucy,” on which she starred with real-life husband Desi Arnaz, and ultimately became the first woman ever to run a major television studio. And with Blanchett in its starring role, this biopic is already a big deal — which means it really needs the right guy in the role of Ball’s leading man. Which actor has the chops to love Lucy? We’ve rounded up a few potential picks.
