by at . Comments

The character of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming biopic Rodham is apparently a hotly coveted role.

With actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Amanda Seyfried seeking the role, Carey Mulligan has reportedly emerged the frontrunner.

Mulligan is currently trying to work out a deal to take on the former First Lady and Secretary of State.

Rodham will focus on Clinton's early adult life, with her budding political career and relationship to Bill.

Young Il Kim penned the script, with James Ponsoldt directing.

We here at THG think Mulligan is an excellent choice to portray a young Hillary Rodham. Do you agree?

Who would be your top choice for the role? Let us know in the comments!
