That's What She Said.
Meryl Streep can do anything!

So I am sitting in bed and I am watching Mamma Mia! (because my taste in films and music is exquisite), and I can’t help but wonder if there is there anything that Meryl Streep can’t do.

Clearly, Cam from Modern Family has already addressed this. “Meryl Streep could play Batman and it would be the right choice,” he said. And he was correct. And because I think her latest role as the “ball-busting” Margaret Thatcher in ca-ray-zay makeup signaled an affinity for kooky unconventional characters, here is a list of movies and roles that Meryl Streep should or should have taken on.

Batman (We’ve already addressed this.)

Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia!

Data in Star Trek


Kiera Knightley in The Kiera Knightley Story

Carrie Bradshaw in the 1980s

Ghostbusters’ Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Rose Dewitt-Bukater

Jack Dawson (Both roles. Kind of like Kramer vs. Kramer but more makeup and less children and more Meryl Streep.)
