Plame’s Story on the Big Screen

The real Plame...The real Plame…

From the letters we received last year after she appeared on our cover, we know that Valerie Plame Wilson ’85 is a polarizing figure. I imagine feelings on both sides will only be stronger once her story gets the Hollywood treatment. Fair Game, based on Plame’s memoir of the same name, will reportedly begin production soon, with Australian actress Naomi Watts in the lead role — and Sean Penn, fresh off his best actor Oscar, reportedly negotiating for the role of Plame’s husband, Joseph Wilson. Regardless of your politics, it’ll be interesting to see such a recent, controversial, and very real story put to film.

...and Watts. Not a bad fit?

...and actress Watts.

(Mostly) unrelated, this is NOT the story I travelled to and from Washington, D.C. yesterday to report on. More on that tomorrow, I promise.

    On a completely related & unrelated note, the song Valerie Plame by the Decemberists is very good (in a non partisan way.)

    Available on the two song EP, Always the Bridesmaid @iTunes for $1.98
