CHARLENE TILTON TO PLAY TAMMY FAYE BAKKER
The Tammy Faye Bakker story is no longer up for grabs. And the winner is NOT one of the expected choices – Renee Zellweger, Dolly Parton, or Wynonna Judd. Dallas star Charlene Tilton has been hoping and planning to play the role and she’s already acquired the rights to Tammy’s story. Actually, Charlene spent time with Tammy in the last years of her life and they were quite friendly. Now Charlene and her people are hard at work putting together a first treatment and they’re interviewing Tammy’s friends. When you think about it, Charlene might be perfect casting, certainly in the looks department. Tammy was 4’11″ and so is Charlene, and if you picture Charlene with those eyelashes and a lot of lipstick, it works!
