Poll #6 is closed and the overwhelming choice for whom people would like to see Meryl star with as a co-lead is none other than the great Cate Blanchett. I guess it's not that surprising...arguably the two greatest actresses working today. Who wouldn't be interested in seeing them pair up? Jessica Lange came in a distant second (whom I voted for). I think it would be really interesting to see those two team for a biopic of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer (Streep as Spyer). In third we have Sigourney Weaver. I've actually thought that she or Jodi Foster would be good choices to play best friend Bonnie Stoll, were Streep to take the title role in the Blacklist script Nyad.
Sins of omission from the list options: Helen Mirren, Judi Dench and Kathy Bates.
There were a few great suggestions for the next poll. Any others? These might be my favorite posts.
