Reese Witherspoon Gets Peggy Lee Fever

She won an Oscar for her performance as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line and now Reese Witherspoon is in negotiations to play sultry jazz singer Peggy Lee in a biopic done by Norah Ephron, who's fresh off doing Julia Child.

Questions, questions.

Does Reese have the silky allure and sex appeal for this assignment?

Where will the mole go?

Is this better casting than Amy Adams as Janis Joplin?

And what next -- a Mama Cass biopic?

(Fingers crossed.)
