Anna Nicole Smith Story

The Roles of a Lifetime

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.

I still don't understand the outcome of a lawsuit that took 10 years. I'm not a huge fan of Anna Nicloe Smith's, but at the time of J. H. Marshall's death she was his wife. He did not leave her anything in his will, but wasn't she entitled to a portion of the estate, as his wife? The argument was, that he was so generous with her during the marriage, that she acquired all that she would have been entitled to. I still don't get how they can step into a marriage, any marriage, and say whether or not it was real. The old guy wasn't senile. And, I always had little sympathy for the son, Pierce Marshall, how is he so different from Anna? He didn't earn the money either! Now all the parties are dead, and the winners are the lawyers.

Coco fat ass as Anna Nicole, Mel Gibson's father as J Howard. Howard Stern as Howard J. Stern. Aaron Carter as Danny. Anna's lesi GF can play herself since no acting experience is required. She didn't talk anyway.

Lifetime again? Lindsey Lohan has more personal experience to play Anna Nichole than she had by playing Liz Taylor.

Anna's heart broke and she died the moment she lost her son. He was all that she ever had that belonged to her, and she loved him more than life itself. Everyone else took advantage of, and used her. Say what you might about her, but she died of a broken heart. I

Hmm let's see. Good ole country girl who didn't get enough attention from daddy or the popular cheerleaders, turns into a gold diggin whore who screws an old rich guy for money and pills, and kills herself after "big daddy" doesn't leave her any money. There's your story folks, now pay me for the rights
