Meryl Streep says she wants Amy Schumer to play her in a biopic

It seems like Meryl Streep has given some thought about who would play her in a biopic.

While promoting her latest movie “Florence Foster Jenkins,” Streep played a game with a Huffington Post reporter in which she had to say the name of a famous actor who could easily fake an odd talent.

Harrison Ford can apparently build houses, and Liam Neeson could easily scare off a bear while out camping.

The situations were outlandish and Streep struggled to come up with answers — until she was asked about who would play her in a biopic.

“Amy Schumer, of course,” Streep said without hesitation.

Schumer had the reaction anyone would if the queen of acting summoned them for a biopic.
