Fans are finally getting a first look at Nicole Kidman take on the highly anticipated role of the iconic Lucile Ball in the upcoming film "Being the Ricardos."
On Tuesday, Amazon Prime released an official teaser showing the early life of one of the greatest female comedians as she works side-by-side her husband, Desi Arnaz, played by Javier Bardem.
“You know Lucy and Ricky. Now it’s time to meet Lucille and Desi,” Amazon says.
The clip shows a quick glance at the Oscar winner and “Undoing” actress sporting Ball’s trademark red hair and reenacting the famous “I Love Lucy” episode where Lucy stomps on grapes in front of a live studio audience.
In June, Kidman told Chris Rock during a conversation for Variety’s Actor on Actors series that she knew the role wouldn't be easy.
"I am way out of my comfort zone right now, Chris. I’m free-falling,” Kidman told the stand-up comedian and actor.
Kidman also told Rock that she knows she is entering his comedy domain. “I’d like to be funny. I’m never cast funny,” she said.
In April, the first photos of Kidman’s transformation into her character emerged while on set. The photos show Kidman, 53, sporting bright orange-colored hair emblematic of the mid-century Hollywood star.
“Being the Ricardos” is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, who’s known for his work on series like “The West Wing” and “The Newsroom,” and films like “The Social Network,” “Steve Jobs” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.”
"Being the Ricardos" premieres December 10 in theaters and on Prime Video on December 21.
