Carey Mulligan has turned down the role of playing Hillary Clinton in the upcoming biopic, ‘Rodham.’

The 28-year-old actress was reportedly the frontrunner to play the former Secretary of State and First Lady. Mulligan did meet with the director, but has passed on the project.

Scarlett Johansson, Amanda Seyfried and Reese Witherspoon are all still in the running to play Clinton. Jessica Chastain was originally rumored for the role as well, but distanced herself from the part earlier this month, denying her involvement by saying, “No, that’s actually not true. I found out about the project online, but, yeah, there’s a lot of stuff out there.”

“They’re all wonderful actresses,” Ponsoldt told The Independent. “We’re very fortunate that a lot of really great actors are interested in playing these roles. We’re in an enviable position.”

According to TheWrap, Jennifer Lawrence was also a possibility to play Clinton, but the actress was too busy to commit to the role.

Wonder which actress is going to scoop up the role!
