Yes! ^^^^^THIS!^^^^^ And I really, really hope ARod doesn't want to try his hand at acting in the Griselda project, like Punky Brewster Casper did in Shades.

Literally all they needed to do is change her nose and chin, and that's it. Could Lifetime not afford it or something?

with Jen's bone structure it's gonna be harder to make her look like her, they better have the best make-up artist.

I think this is Griselda when she was younger.

I know, it's really weird. Her face changed a lot over the years. Her left eye is distinctly smaller (or just half-closed for some reason? IDK, I'm not an ophthalmologist. lol) than her right in all pictures, that's how you can tell it's her.

She looked kinda good in the pic I posted. :oops:

I hope she'll really ugly and dirty herself up, but I kind of doubt it. We'll probably get something similar to Zeta-Jones. I don't see how this is going to fit into her Spring schedule due to Vegas, especially if Shades is renewed. Anyone know? Daisy?

With Vegas I can't see when she can film it unless this can be shot in 3 weeks which is impossible, I don't know why they spread her Vegas schedule like that, she has January and most of February but she has World of dance, if like you said Shades doesn't get a 4th season she can in the summer but that's it even at the end of the year she'll have the NBC musical if that's still on.

DEAD..I think its safe to say this movie will be dark. There is no way of romanticizing her story. The woman had lovers but I believe she ended up killing some of them. She is such a twisted bitch and I cannot believe this has not been made into a big movie yet. I am fascinated by her story and so glad Jen is attached to this project. For those that don't know much about her look up documentaries on her - bitch was NUTS...I think Cocaine Cowboys 2 focuses a bit on her. If she really dives DEEP into this role and focuses on it, this can do wonders for her and get her some awards/nominations. These types of roles is where she shines.

Most TV movies cant release in theaters but a few TV movies can,I guess it depends on production company and their chanels.
