Anne Hathaway to Play Judy Garland on Stage and Screen in Adaptations of Get Happy

Anne Hathaway to Play Judy Garland on Stage and Screen


Anne Hathaway will soon be doing double duty as Judy Garland: She's been cast for both a theater and film adaptation of a book about the troubled star's life.

The roles are based on the biography Get Happy: The Life of Judy Garland, which comes from the same writer who wrote the Truman Capote biography that was adapted into the 2005 Oscar-nominated film. The Garland book was originally published in 2001, and the Weinstein Company recently picked up the rights to it for both stage and screen.

Harvey Weinstein said Hathaway "will be a true class act in this challenging role." We know from this year's Oscars that Hathaway can sing — and from Rachel Getting Married that she isn't afraid to play the dark sides of addiction, which Garland struggled with throughout her life. Can you see Hathaway in this role?
