Laura Linney as Katharine Graham?

I so can't wait to see this HBO film based on Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham's life. Read her biography Personal History and it still ranks up there as one of the best bios I've ever read. The busy Linney is also going to be host of PBS' Masterpiece Classic when it launches on January 4.

Script is being written by Joan Didion, Laura Ziskin, Julie Goldstein and Pam William are producing. Robert Benton might direct -- how about a woman director?
