Nicole Kidman is in talks for a biography of Lucille Ball.
But Debra Messing seems to think she would be suitable for the role after playing the Will & Grace icon. On Monday, she shared on her Twitter page that she was ready for the job.
When a fan tweeted, “Choosing to believe that @DebraMessing is unavailable or something :)”, she quoted him and wrote, “Oh, no, I’m available.”

The real deal: Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, portrayed in 1955, became part of television history as the stars of the pioneering American sitcom I Love Lucy from 1951 to 1957.
Aaron Sorkin wrote and directed the upcoming biopic “Being Ricardos” for Amazon after his successful streaming with The Trial Of The Chicago 7 for Netflix.
While Nicole is said to have been chosen for Lucy, Javier Bardem is negotiating the role of her husband and co-star Desi Arnaz, Deadline reported on Monday.
In the final season of Will And Grace’s renaissance, Debra played Lucille Ball in a character for I Love Lucy.
She recreated a series of classic moments from the original sitcom, including an ad for Lucy’s “Vitameatavegamin” and her attempts to work in a chocolate factory.

When the news broke that Nicole could be cast, Debra struggled to get in her place.
One fan said Debra told Variety last year that she did not want to play Lucille Ball for a TV project before.
“Like 15 years ago, people would say, ‘Hey, do you want to make it like it’s made for a TV movie or something?’ “And I always felt like, ‘Oh, I wouldn’t even touch that. Like she’s untouchable,'” Debra told Variety at the time.
Until this Monday, however, when a Twitter user picked up the quote, Debra said, “Mmmmmm, I changed my mind,” with a wink of emoticons.

Debra also retweeted several people, saying they would prefer her as Lucy, including comrade-in-arms star Valerie Bertinelli, who wrote, “Debra Messing was robbed.”
She continued to retouch messages such as: “There is no way !!! Debra Messing would be perfect !! I’ve always said that she’s the closest thing to Lucy that can come in a long time. I love Nicole Kidman, but I can’t see her as Lucy.
Another Twitter user wrote: “Nicole Kidman ??? Debra Messing is the perfect choice for this role. I love you, don’t always agree with you, but you have fully achieved the goal “and was rewarded with a retweet from Debra.
Desi, who played Lucy’s husband as Ricky Ricardo on their program, had a tumultuous marriage to her in real life.
Applying Elbow Lubricant: When the news broke that Nicole could be cast, Debra began working hard instead of joining the role.
She filed for divorce for the first time in 1944, reportedly because of his company and drinking, but they met before splitting permanently in 1960.
Meanwhile, they produced two children and a sitcom that engraved them into a television legend, working from 1951 to 1957.
They also starred in films together throughout their marriage, including Forever, Darling and Vincent Minelli’s comedy The Long, Long Trailer.
Despite their divorce, in which she called their marriage a “nightmare,” Lucy and Desi remained publicly friendly for the rest of his life.
Lucy married Borscht Belt comic Gary Morton in 1961 and remained with him until her death in 1989, while Desi married Edith Hirsch in 1963.
Edith and Desi died of cancer a year apart – she died in 1985, and her husband, who loved cigars in his native Cuba, succumbed to lung cancer in 1986.
Aaron Sorkin’s new biopic is about a week spent creating an episode of “I Love Lucy,” during which Lucy and Desi’s marriage is shaken.
It is believed that the turbulent week, which takes place from the table read to the recording in front of an audience in a studio, includes a professional land mine for the couple.
As seen in 1958: She filed for divorce for the first time in 1944, reportedly because of his company and drinking, but they met before splitting permanently in 1960.
