Anna Nicole Smith Story

The Roles of a Lifetime

8/25/2012 8:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's life was surrounded by a huge cast of characters ... and now Lifetime is actually trying to cast those characters for an upcoming movie ... and TMZ has obtained the casting call sheet.

First off, Anna is described as "a pretty, but plain girl growing up in small town Texas" who "transformed herself though sheer willpower" into the famous Playmate she became.

They call Howard K. Stern a "lawyer-guy-friend-weirdo" ... "whose middling law firm is on the way out, so he devotes his entire business career to representing Anna Nicole."

Anna's late son Danny is described as a "wry, very cute and intelligent teenager" ... who "dislikes Howard K. Stern, whom he considers a slow-acting poison." They add, "Danny seems to have picked up his mother's pill popping habit" and "cuts his young life short."

J. Howard Marshall -- Anna's 80-something, billionaire husband -- is listed as "skin going gray, head gone bald and liver spots everywhere" ... a "pointlessness" dulls "the glint that used to be in his eyes." Um, yeah.

They paint Marshall's son E. Pierce as Anna's greatest nemesis ... he "makes it his decision to DESTROY Anna" and "he viciously vows to dedicate all thirteen of his attorneys to making sure Anna never receives a dime."

Finally, Anna's mother Virgie is said to be "a plain-looking deputy living in a hardscrabble Texas town" but according to them, "Virgie claims that men ruined her life" so she is determined they won't do the same to Anna.

For whatever reason, there was no listing for everyone's favorite baby daddy, Larry Birkhead.

No word on when this masterpiece in the making will air.

the role of a lifetime? playing a golddigging whore? shouldn't be too hard for most women in the US, since that's what they are in real life.

Looking at your collage of photos that accompany the article, it is obvious that there is only one person who can play the part of J. Howard Marshall.
I speak of course of Lindsay Lohan. Minimal makeup will be needed and just take out her hair extensions.

WHY would anyone alive today who watched that sad azzed train wreck from start to finish in real life run out and put money in a bunch of B list actors who hate America and the people in it not liberal, gay or some freak parade member pretending about it and lying about half the stuff they even put in the movie to make it even remotely watchable? So creative these people are.. not.

Anna Nichole smith should go down in history as the worst golddigger in the world she not only came out with no money from the marshals but it left her estate broke and no money for her daughter Anna truly gave a new meaning to the phrase "DUMB BLOND"

I thought it was funny when the supreme court of The United States gave its ruling to leave Anna Estate and her daughter with No Money.

Never, I hope. But LiLo might be a reasonable Anna Nicole.
