Reese Witherspoon To Play Rosemary Clooney?

Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her portrayal as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line
While I'm on a rumor kick, let me throw another one out there that I came across recently. There's a rumor that George Clooney is thinking about making a movie about his aunt, Maysville Kentucky's Girl Singer, Rosemary Clooney. He is said to have approached Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon about the role.

According to In Touch magazine, "There is talk of a movie about George's aunt, the singer and actress Rosemary Clooney, and Reese (who won an Oscar for playing June Carter) has expressed interested in it." The magazine claims an insider revealed this in the February 26 edition.

So there may be a movie and there may not. If it does come about, I can't think of anyone better to play her.

There was an earlier TV movie about Rosemary Clooney starring actress Sondra Locke. That movie aired in 1982 and was called Rosie: The Rosemary Clooney Story.
