Great Job, Internet!: Christina Applegate is Meryl Streep in Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic
Beloved and Oscar-nominated actress Meryl Streep has been in a lot of films and has a lot of admirers. That being said, she still hasn’t really made it. Sure, Billy Eichner loves her, but where’s her Lifetime original movie? That channel blows up Full House and Saved By The Bell, but not Meryl Streep? Please.
Thankfully, that’s what Funny Or Die is for. In a new clip, Meryl: The Lifetime Biopic, Christina Applegate plays Streep, or at least a cartoonishly underprepared version of Streep’s most recognizable characters. Though she does Streep as Julia Child, Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, and even Streep in Mamma Mia, Applegate isn’t exactly doing her best Streep work, though that’s probably the point.
