Watching Zoey Deutch in a series of compelling RINGER scenes, and noticing the physical resemblance to her mother, Lea Thompson, it occurred to me that I have never seen Thompson in a dramatic role.
Lea Thompson as Lela Rogers in J. EDGAR
Then an ad came onscreen for the new film J. EDGAR, and I realized I will soon get the chance. Thompson plays Lela Rogers in the film, which is due out in November. J. Edgar Hoover was involved with Lela Rogers (who was the mother of Ginger Rogers) in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. It should be interesting.
