According to The Hollywood Reporter, The People V. O.J. Simpson director Ryan Murphy has secured the rights to the book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down A President. Written by the same author who penned O.J., it is widely believed producers of American Crime Story are madly rushing to develop the Lewinsky-themed screenplay and have reportedly begun casting. So who would play 22-year-old Lewinsky who had an affair with 49-year-old President Clinton in one of the biggest in-office scandals in American history? GRAZIA shortlists a few names for your casting eye. 

Alexandra Daddario
Could this be the role that blasts the 30-year-old into the big league? Daddario (who shares physical similarities to a young Lewinsky) tops our list as most-likely to play the White House intern.

Jenna Leigh Green
Her most famous role without a doubt was playing Libby Chessler, the nemesis to Melissa Joan Hart’s wildly popular Sabrina The Teenage Witch. While Green is the spitting image of Lewinsky, she is now 43-years-old which unfortunately rules her out. But could she perhaps play today’s Lewinsky looking back?

Lea Michele
Well, she has worked with Ryan Murphy for years on the set of Glee so we think Michele may fast-track her way to the shortlist of Lewinsky-players.

Kristen Stewart
She’s proved her versatility – even in the girliest role like Woody Allen’s Veronica in Café Society. One to watch.
