    Gwyneth Paltrow: Marlene Dietrich in TV Movie?



    Gwyneth Paltrow is rumored to play legendary German actress Marlene Dietrich in a two-part TV movie produced by EuropaCorp TV (the project was initiated by HBO and BBC).
    Marlene was not only known for her acting — she had an extensive singing career and was a highly-paid cabaret artist. Gwyn sure has been raking in the singing roles — Glee, Country Strong, and Rock of Ages (also rumored). Now this!
    According to French magazine Télé 2 Semaines (via Collider), the biopic is based on the biography written by Marlene’s daughter and closest confidante, Maria Riva.

    Oh Christ on a cracker. Next thing you know she'll try to put her on twist on things and make Marlene Dietrich a country singer.

    Go away you hag.

    I am not a fan of Dietrich (especially after reading the biography) but even I know that Gwyneth is a terrible choice for this role.

    Maria Riva's book is a very good read because she is blunt in it and that is kinda cool.

    Gwyneth is the wrong choice for this. She is not sexy. She is not sensual. She is just straight up "Official Preppy Handbook" WASP with a side order of vanilla.

    Gwyneth Paltrow as Marlene Dietrich

    that's almost asking for a movie to flop

    should be funny to see her attempt to do a german accent

    I'm not a big fan of Marlene, but Gwyneth would totally fuck this up. It would be like an extended SNL skit. Then we'd be stuck with a German accent replacing the British one she got.

    I think Diane Kruger the obvious choice here. She often reminds me of Marlene, they have the same icy adrogynous beauty. Sure, she isn't much of an actress, but neither is Gwynnie when she isn't playing herself.

    She was so Marlene-esque in Inglourious Basterds, it was just lovely.
