If you thought running for president was a tough task, then just imagine what actresses are going through to play Hillary Clinton in her upcoming biopic Rodham. Yup, loads of Hollywood's biggest stars are vying for the racy role. The movie, which is set to come out during the 2016 campaign season, is set to focus on the former First Lady during the Watergate scandal while she was a lawyer in Washington, D.C. During that time, she was dating Bill Clinton for three years after meeting him while studying at Yale.
A political thriller about Hillary? Most definitely something that I would check out. As of right now, big-name actresses up for the part include Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain, and Amanda Seyfriend. Are they all good options? Of course they are. In fact, my fave is probably Reese. But I have a few actresses in mind that could kill this part. Check out our top 5 actress picks for the Rodham biopic, here:

Sure, Amy Poehler is a funny woman, but I think she totally has what it takes to play Clinton. The change of pace could open up a whole other world for Amy, one that I think would shock audiences. And heck, Clinton has a funny streak in her too. Poehler would have NO problem bringing that to life on the big screen.
