“Rodham”, the biopic about Hilary Clinton from director James Ponsoldt (“Smashed”) appears to have its titular character. Last week, it was reported that Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried  were up for the lead role. But now comes news that Carey Mulligan is in the lead to nab the role. Mulligan was last seen in “The Great Gatsby” and has films like “Drive” and “Shame” to her credit, so she’s a solid actress. What do you think about the casting choice?
