Meryl Streep To Play Mrs. Thatcher?

merylmaggieDear Meryl, I hear you may play Margaret Thatcher in an upcoming movie. If you think doing a biopic will up your chances for a third Oscar, you’re right. Unfortunately, the “Iron Lady” is not the part with which to swish up those steps to make your acceptance speech. I mean, this ain’t like playing the Queen. (who, according to some reports but not according to others, did not “get on” with the PM.) If you think that you, as a known Hollywood liberal, need to prove you can play roles against the grain of your own thinking, haven’t you already done that many times before? Finally, an English accent hardly poses a challenge for you at this stage in your career. Bottom line: don’t!
