Now here’s another real-life legend role that will be taken on by the one and only Judith Chapman.  As daytime soap fans know, Chapman has a massive resume on the soaps from Natalie on ATWT to Ginny on GH, to Diana and Angelique on DAYS, to Gloria on Y&R to roles on Ryan’s Hope, and more.

In the latest bit of casting news from Chapman herself, she will be seen in the role of former First Lady, Nancy Reagan in the new Will Smith film, King Richard based on the life of Tennis champs, Serena and Venus Williams, father, Richard Williams.

According to Yahoo News: Liev Schreiber has also joined the cast of the film.  Schreiber will play tennis coach Paul Cohen, a famous instructor who worked with several leading tennis players including John McEnroe and Pete Sampras, amongst others. The script has been done by Zach Baylin and depicts the story of Williams, who trained his two daughters to play tennis without having any prior knowledge of the sport and turned them both into Grand Slam winners and World No. 1 Players in the world.”

Chapman posted on her Facebook page: “Pleased to leak the latest … I will be playing “Just Say No” NANCY REAGAN in Will Smith’s new film..”KING RICHARD” about Venus & Serena’s Dad and their rise to Tennis Fame! Last year TALLULAH…HAH! The Life of an Actor!!”

She is so very long overdue to make any long of an appearance. Especially now since she is going to be a grandma again.

She is a very, very good soap actress. The woman has so much screen presence that I think she could simply read the phone book in a scene and keep the viewers interested. It dumbfounds me that the remaining soaps don’t hire (and heavily use) unemployed veteran soap actors like Judith Chapman and Elizabeth Hubbard (ATWT’s Lucinda Walsh). These folks have a proven history of not just acting talent but the ability to capture viewers’ attention. The overall quality of the shows has slipped in the past 15 years. Why they aren’t clamoring to get these people is beyond me.… Read more »

I wouldn’t mind seeing her come back to Y&R. Jack could use her right about now. I read that Greg Riccart is going back to DOOL. I like him as Kevin but not in the part he played on Days.
