Lucille Ball’s Daughter Was ‘Devastated’ Over Cate Blanchett’s Being the Ricardos Exit

January 2, 2022

Aaron Sorkin’s new film Being the Ricardos has arrived with Nicole Kidman garnering some Oscar buzz with her role as Lucille Ball. While Ball’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, was happy with Kidman’s casting, she was not the original choice. Earlier in the biopic’s development, Cate Blanchett was attached to star as the I Love Lucy star. Arnaz had been fully on board with Blanchett’s casting as her late mother, and as she now tells the New York Times, she describes feeling “devastated” over the actress exiting the project.
