Natalie Portman Is: Ruth Bader Ginsburg (aka Notorious RBG) In On The Basis Of Sex

Doubt there's any rapping in the movie, but... one can hope. NOTORIOUS!

In a neat bit of casting news for you, Natalie Portman is now slated to don the robe and will be playing Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a new movie, On The Basis Of Sex.

The movie plays out like this: it’ll follow Ginsburg’s career and her fierce fight for civil rights, and how she dealt with the hardships and issues that come with that. As the second female justice (and the first Jewish female justice), Ginsburg has broken her fair share of molds and expectations throughout her career. She’s also always been a strong advocate for women’s rights, making her kind of a total badass.

She’s already got a full-length biography coming out later this year, so a movie like this should be a really neat hallmark of her storied career.

Still holding out for a bit of hope for Portman rapping as Notorious RBG. She’s definitely got the chops, at least.
