Following her Golden Globe winning performance in ‘Fosse/Verdon’ and her Oscar nominated turn in ‘My Week with Marilyn’, Michelle Williams is set to portray another entertainment icon in ‘Fever’, an upcoming biopic of singer Peggy Lee.
Aussie actress Nicole Kidman has replaced her compatriot Cate Blanchett as Lucille Ball in Aaron Sorkin’s “Being The Ricardos”. Conceived as a day in the life making the TV classic ‘I Love Lucy’, the biopic will also star Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz.
