1970s tennis is soon going to have a Capote situation of its very own: According to Deadline, Emma Stone and Steve Carell have signed on to play Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in a Battle of the Sexes biopic for Fox Searchlight. That’s not to be confused with HBO’s own movie about King and Riggs, which will star Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, or the upcoming comedy Match Maker, which will star Will Ferrell and a woman to be named later. How do you want your Bobby Riggs, America — affably off-kilter, sweatily grotesque, or shirtlessly silly?
