What next — Valerie Harper as Tallulah Bankhead?
I am so kidding. I just wrote about Harper’s appeal, which some queens who’ve seen her as Tallu are kvelling about.
And I do think Gwynnie Paltrow was astonishing in Shakespeare in Love and deserves a shot at a juicy role like pants-wearing, Nazi-detesting, cig-puffing Marlene Dietrich.
And she’s got it in a BBC drama that was just announced!
But can she do the wisp? If so, what next — Gwynnie as Barbra Walters?
