Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball Surprises Fans; a New Character
This week, the actress showed a new hairstyle of Nicole Kidman as Lucille Ball on the set of Aaron Sorkin’s new movie, Being the Ricardos.
The star sported a shoulder-length wig with loose curls a rosy-colored lipstick.
The actress had on a cream-colored blazer and brown slacks as for her outfit, but all of this was covered by a black raincoat to protect her from the unexpected rainfall in LA.
Javier Bardem is portraying the star’s on-screen husband, Desi Arnaz, a Cuban-American actor. The Spanish actor has not to be seen in character, but filming has only just started.
Nicole and Javier are joined on the set of the Amazon Studios film by Tony Hale, Jake Lacy, and Alia Shawkat, and J.K. Simmons and Nina Arianda, who are playing the beloved couple, Fred and Ethel.
Lucille and Desi’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, said she and her brother, Desi Arnaz Jr., wholeheartedly approve of the cast, although there has been some criticism of choice to cast Javier in the role of a proud Cuban-American.
Lucie, who is a producer on the project, said, “The casting choices have all been inspired and Desi and I are so looking forward to seeing what this impressive group of actors make of Sorkin’s delicious script.”
Nicole Kidman Plays as Lucille Ball
Kidman teased her new role in an Instagram post last week. She postured on the closed set, writing under the photo, “Currently in production #BeingTheRicardos.”
Kidman had gushed about playing Lucille in January, saying that she is an amazing woman, and Nicole is very excited for people to see what Aaron found out about her and how he has interpreted Desi and Lucy and the way that it is so rich. “I didn’t know any of this.”
This film will highlight one week of production on the “I Love Lucy” set, as Desi and Lucille navigate a discussion that could interrupt their careers and marriage.
This is a story of folk’s real-life romantic, tempestuous and complicated relationship and not a recreation of I Love Lucy; no one could do that.
“Aaron Sorkin has not told this tale as a cradle to grave biopic.” Instead, he has chosen to illuminate a snippet of time during an amazingly intense period of their show’s enduring success.
“Just trust us, it’s going to be a nice film, and p.s. the voting is over,” Lucie Arnaz said. “I love all of you.”
