No she's not.

Kidman is now the same age as Ball was in 1963. Lucille Ball was no longer a Ricardo or an Arnaz.
Get a younger actress, people.

Like Glenn Close in the new Sunset Boulevard movie and season 16 of the Real Housewives of Orange County, this is something that the world does not need.

Jesus, that red haired PA in the middle photo w/ Kidman in the OP article looks more like Ball than Kidman. And he's a man.

Dreanged? She's standing outside in the wind on set, you have zero idea what her "take" is.

You do realize Lucille Ball didn't walk around life in full movie star drag don't you?

Nichole Kidman is in over her head in another movie role that isn't meant for her.
Debra Messing should've been given this role.
Anyone remember Nichole playing Grace Kelly?

This looks like shit. "Lucy Ricardo" is a tough impersonation, but Lucille Ball is near impossible.
The only thing Nicole Kidman ever impressed me in was "To Die For." I now suspect that part was not that much a deviation from her self.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||04/29/2021|
Nicole is so much prettier than white trashed-face Ball. I Hate Lucy. What a cunt. And she looked 60 when she was 30 so, I think Nicole's got this.
|by Anonymous||reply 28||04/29/2021|
R28 Disagree. Lucy was already 40+ when "I Love Lucy" began.
Ball was stunning in her 20s and early 30s.

She did a good imitation,suitable for exactly what she did, a sitcom parody. Nothing she has done gives the impression she could headline a dramatic Aaron Sorkin production.

Nicole’s eyes are too small because of all the Botox and fillers. One of Lucy’s main quirks was her opening her eyes really wide.

People have a little faith, the movie is being written and directed by Oscar Winner Aaron Sorkin , you know,who's last picture was just up for 7 Academy Awards including Best Picture. He might know what he's doing.

Speaking of Sorkin, Allison Janney would make a great late-life Lucy.

Messing can't act. I'm not saying Kidman is going to be good in this, because all signs point to her being as awful as usual in a role that's not meant for her, but Messing couldn't pull this off.

Lucie controls the life rights to her parents and she's a barracuda. You can't do sh*t with either ILL or her parents without her hand out. It has made her comfortably rich so she can do her charity work and community theatre in Palm Springs.
They paid her handsomely for this dreck, and she has producer credit and ring-kissing status.

The debacle that "Bewitched" was in no way Nicole Kidman's fault. It was 100% writer director Nora Ephron. It should have been the same plot as the show, no behind TV series shitfest. Shirley would have been a hoot, and Will Ferrell was no Darren. I stated this years ago here. They should have had Jim Carrey as Darren and then twenty minutes before the end have Greg Kinnear come thru the door with no explanation and continue as Darren.
