"You give me fever
when you kiss me
fever when you hold me tight
Fever
In the morning
Fever all through the night"

Can you picture Reese Witherspoon singing that? I'm not sure I can. Then again, I couldn't picture her as June Carter Cash in WALK THE LINE, and she won an Oscar for it. In any case, we may be seeing Witherspoon as the sultry singer Peggy Lee in a new biopic spanning Lee's entire life. The actress has managed to walk away with the life rights to Lee's story direct from the singer's estate. Nora Ephron has been lassoed by Witherspoon to possibly write and direct the project, which seems like a good fit considering Ephron's love of the singer.

Although Witherspoon has never pulled off sexy-smooth before, she looks great in period as seen in WALK THE LINE and PLEASANTVILLE. The movie should focus on the late '30s all the way up to the 1950's, and we'll most likely see Witherspoon age right in front of our eyes as the story goes from Lee's early singing career, to her songwriting and film work.

What do you think? Is this a good fit for Witherspoon? Or should she stay away from the booming double-bass and reverb snaps of "Fever"?
