Addison Timlin lands role as young Hillary Clinton

Californication actress Addison Timlin has been cast as a young Hillary Clinton in forthcoming film When I'm A Moth.

The biographical project will chronicle the early post-college years of the former U.S. First Lady and presidential candidate, who traveled to Alaska at 22 and worked odd jobs before starting her law career in 1969, reports TheWrap.com.

Directors Magdalena Zyzak and Zachary Cotler will take charge of the movie, which they also co-wrote.

Timlin follows in the footsteps of fellow actress Teresa Barnwell, who has frequently portrayed Clinton on TV shows like Roseanne, Step by Step, and The Nanny, while Ghostbusters star Kate McKinnon has been famously spoofing Clinton on comedy show Saturday Night Live in the run up to the November (16) election.
