Jessica Chastain transforms into Tammy Faye for upcoming biopic
Jessica Chastain's acclaimed work in such films as "Zero Dark Thirty" and "The Help" (both of which earned the actress Academy Award nominations) have cemented her as one of Hollywood's top female talents (not to mention a major box office draw).
This fall, Chastain will pine for awards once more in the upcoming feature "The Eyes of Tammy Faye." Starring in the titular role, her performance will bring a nuanced perspective to the late Ms. Tammy Faye, whose portrayal in the media and tabloids was poisoned by the actions of her husband, Jim Bakker (played by Andrew Garfield).
"The Eyes of Tammy Faye" releases in cinemas on September 17th, 2021. Catch the official trailer here.
