Australian actress Cate Blanchett has been chosen to play the iconic role of Lucille Ball.
A new biopic of the American comedienne is being written by Aaron Sorkin of :The West Wing” fame. It will cover Lucy’s 20-year marriage to Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz on “I Love Lucy”, the first show of its kind to be filmed in front of a live audience.
Lucille Ball won four Emmys as a performer and went on to become one of Hollywood’s first female TV executives. She founded Desilu Studios which went on to produced the original “Mission: Impossible” and “Star Trek” series.
Blanchett is no stranger to biopics. She won her first Academy award playing Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator.
