For the unfamiliar, Nikki Finke is allegedly the most powerful woman in Hollywood. She knows every casting story before anyone else because she eavesdrops from her roving residence underneath the stairs of Hollywood agents. Rumor has it, if you speak Nikki Finke’s three times in a mirror, she will magically appear, eat your children, and vanish into a deep well.

She’s also famously reclusive. There’s only one known picture of her (above), and who knows when that image was taken. In fact, she’s so guarded about her secrecy that, when Brett Easton Ellis revealed which apartment building she lived in, she threatened to reveal the home address of the agents at Ellis’ agency, ICM, and the school in which there children attended. That’s baskets, people, BASKETS.

Given the fact that no one really knows what Nikki Finke looks like anymore, we’re forced to rely only on her Deadline post and deduce from her writing what she might look like. Given that context, these five people seem natural fits to play Finke is the feature film adaptation of her life.

(P.S. If you don’t hear from me ever again, you’ll know why).
