Many historical figures have been given new life onscreen by some of Hollywood’s most talented actors. From Marilyn Monroe to Albert Einstein, these figures' influence will be felt, and embodied, for generations to come.
While many actors have had to undergo a huge physical transformation to fully embody a character, there are also quite a few actors who are lucky enough to show an uncanny resemblance to the character they’re portraying. It’s a blessing for the makeup crew, but it also adds so much to their performance.
It's no surprise why Nicole Kidman is in negotiations for the role of Lucille Ball in the upcoming film 'Being the Ricardos,' written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. Also being considered for the cast is Javier Bardem, for the role of Desi Arnaz, Ball's husband. The film is reportedly set during one production week of 'I Love Lucy' and covers behind-the-scenes drama of the actors' marriage.
