Producer Larry Thompson announced earlier this week that he's working on TV movie based on Kitty Kelley's unauthorized Oprah Winfrey tell-all, expected to air in September 2011, around the same time Winfrey will be ending her daytime talk show.
And a movie for fellow TV veteran Barbara Walters may also be on the way.
The View co-host met with HBO last week to discuss making a film version of her bestselling memoir Audition, The New York Post reports.
So which actresses might be able to pull off playing Winfrey and Walters? Here are some casting suggestions:
Gabourey Sidibe, an Oscar-nominated actress whose role in Precious had critics raving, personally knows Winfrey, who produced the 2009 film.
Then there's Tony Award-winning actress Viola Davis, who not only looks most like Winfrey, she can sometimes sound like her, too.
Another idea: Queen Latifah, who's proven she shares the talk show host's entrepreneurial attitude, serving as a spokeswoman for CoverGirl and Jenny Craig.
But Jennifer Hudson hails from Chicago, where the talk show host has been taping for 25 years, and shows she's got the serious acting chops with an Academy Award.
As for Walters, English actress Maggie Smith's extensive career and multiple accolades might make her an easy choice to play the broadcast journalist. But fellow Brit Emma Thompson, with an equally wide-ranging resume, could also be a possible candidate.
But as a New York native, Claire Danes is the closest to Walter's roots.
And if there's one person who might be the frontrunner in this casting, it's Helen Mirren. The 64-year-old's shocking transformation in The Queen – and uncanny resemblance to Queen Elizabeth – shows she goes all out to embody a role.
