Who should play Paula Broadwell in the movie?

How about Claire Danes? We already know from Homeland that she can do crazy really well.

General Petreaus? Jack McBrayer of 30 Rock looks like him but he is too young.

I think that Jill Kelley should be played by Sara Ramirez - Dr. Torres in Gray's Anatomy.

38. Maggie Gyllenhall has more of the Broadwell look.

Jolie could pull-off the Kelly twins though.

I did not know this (from wiki) - Jones was born in Los Angeles, the younger daughter of media mogul, producer, and musician Quincy Jones, and actress Peggy Lipton.

16. Oh my goodness ...

I thought you all might be talking about the cast for one of those made for TV movies
on Lifetime ... not that I'd watch.

Never would pay money to see such a story in a theater movie either.

At almost $10 a ticket I'm very particular what films I see.
