Elizabeth Olsen has established herself as a dramatic tour de fource in recent years, but we think she has the hard-edged humor to be an excellent young Hillary Rodham.

Josh Hutcherson definitely has the smirk of a young Bill, and could pull of the voice acting needed to appropriately capture the young Commander in Chief. We might need to age him up a bit, but nothing a little makeup won't fix.

Hillary Clinton has credited democratic lobbyist Anne Wexler with providing her first political job. We think that Charlotte Gainsbourg would play a convincingly driven Wexler.

Homeland's Damian Lewis would make a great Senator Bill Weld. Allegedly, the script features an office flirting scene between him and Hillary.

Betsey Wright met the Clintons around this time, and would remain politically involved with them through Bill's presidencies. Kathy Bates' Oscar nominated character in Primary Colors was said to be based off Wright, and we think it's high time for her to reprise the role.

As a young couple, Hillary and Bill worked together on George McGovern's campaign. Warren Beatty organized a concert for the liberal candidate when he was running for president, and now, appropriately, bears quite a resemblance.
