Why Christina was a candidate

I wouldn't be surprised if many of you wondered why Christina Applegate was included in a recent list of possible candidates to portray Carole Lombard in a hypothetical film biography. First of all, I think she has a talent for comedy, which to me is a prerequisite for any actress playing Carole. Second, in many ways the adult Applegate has blossomed into someone who looks quite a bit like Lombard. Compare this pic...

...with this, a closeup of one of Carole's more famed swimsuit shots:

I think there's a definite resemblance. While I wouldn't necessarily make Christina my number-one choice to portray Lombard, I definitely view her as a worthy candidate.

Incidentally, this topic was also discussed at the Yahoo! group "Fabulous Faces On Film." Candidates brought up at that site included Naomi Watts, Charlize Theron, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Nicole Kidman, although the latter two would have to get their hair lightened (Kidman has played blonde before, notably in "Bewitched").
