Remember when director Lee Daniels said he'd most like to work with All My Children's Susan Lucci following all the acclaim he received from Precious? I think Daniel's upcoming adaptation of the late Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls would be the perfect, sudsy vehicle for him to cast La Lucci in!
While Lucci wouldn't be in the right age range for the vehicle's three principle twentysomething roles—secretary-turned-cosmetics model Anne, tragic actress Jennifer or Broadway sensation Neely O'Hara—I think Lucci could definitely pull off fading Broadway legend Helen Lawson, who first befriends Anne, then later stabs her in the back. What do you guys think?
Would you like to see Susan Lucci in Lee Daniel's version of Valley of the Dolls on NBC?
