Blonde Cast: Who's Playing Marilyn Monroe?
While the show was being developed, there were several cast changes made particularly for the main role. At first, Naomi Watts was cast to play the role of Marilyn Monroe. Then it was rumored that Jessica Chastain would be taking over to bring life to the central figure in the movie until production finally chose the actress to play Marilyn Monroe: Ana de Armas. She will be joined by these actors:
- Ana de Armas (as Marilyn Monroe)
- Adrien Brody (as The Playwright)
- Bobby Cannavale (as The Ex-Athlete)
- Julianne Nicholson (as Gladys)
- Caspar Phillipson (as The President)
- Sara Paxton (as Miss Flynn)
- Toby Huss (as Whitey)
- Rebecca Wisocky (as Yvet)
- Xavier Samuel (as Cass)
- David Warshofsky (as Mr. Z)
- Evan Williams (as Eddy)

The casting made the perfect choices for the roles. Check out this photo reenactment of Marilyn Monroe and The Playwright (played by Adrien Brody).
In a nutshell, Blonde is a biopic of the life of Marilyn Monroe. It is based on Joyce Carol Oates' bestselling novel of the same title. Although it clearly depicts Marilyn Monroe as the main character in the novel, it is a re-imagination of her life.
The film gives a glimpse of her young life as Norma Jeane and her rise to stardom. Not to mention, Marilyn's romantic life is also depicted in the film.
Again, this is an explicitly fictionalized take on Marilyn Monroe's life back in the 50s and 60s.
