Former The West Wing
star Kristin Chenoweth
is celebrating after being given the nod to play Dolly Parton
in an upcoming biopic by the country legend herself.
The actress/singer accepts she might be lacking in certain areas but she has always dreamed of playing her heroine and now it looks like she'll get the chance.
She says, "I'm lacking in a few areas, bust-wise, but she has said publicly that if that were to ever come to pass she sees me doing it. She's told me that as well to my face. There is nothing that I can imagine being more fun and more challenging. I think I can do a very believable job of it. I love Dolly, everybody loves her. I talked with her at the Capitol on Memorial Day at one of the concerts and she jumped out of a freakin' cake with a red white and blue hat and just looked amazing. Her waist was tiny and I was just in amazement (sitting) in the wings. She walked up to me and she said, 'I've been hearing about you now Kristy. I just can't see anybody else playing me but you.' She calls her assistant in, 'Carol have you seen this girl? She's so me! Look at her.' Then she said, 'You know what, I'm gonna have my people stay in touch with you and see what we can do about that.'"
