Plans are being mulled on a TV movie about the late actress Anna Nicole Smith. A casting call sheet obtained by TMZ revealed how Lifetime is going to interpret each of the people in Anna's life into the movie version.

Anna, who died in 2007 at the age of 39, is described as "a pretty, but plain girl growing up in small town Texas" who "transformed herself though sheer willpower" into the famous Playmate she became. Her son Danny is "wry, very cute and intelligent teenager" who dislikes his mother's "lawyer-guy-friend-weirdo" Howard K. Stern because he considers him a slow-acting poison.

On Danny, the movie will depict his pill-popping habit. In reality, he died in 2006 at the age of 20 while visiting his mother at the maternity ward in Doctors Hospital. Coroners ruled he accidentally overdosed on methadone, Zoloft and Lexapro.

Meanwhile, Anna's 80-year-old plus billionaire husband J. Howard Marshall is physically "going gray, head gone bald and liver spots everywhere" but has "the glint that used to be in his eyes." Howard's son E. Pierce apparently would be the villain in the story as he "makes it his decision to DESTROY Anna" and make "sure Anna never receives a dime."

Anna's mom Virgie is "a plain-looking deputy living in a hardscrabble Texas town". She believes that men ruined her life so she is determined they won't do the same to Anna. No character description of Anna's baby daddy Larry Birkhead yet.

Another movie vilifying stern? What? Because of that sleazeball detective or Mark Hatten? Virgie? By most accounts from the people who actually KNEW Anna in her later life, Howard was a father figure. At first I was excited about this making up for the abortion of the other movie, but if they're just basing it on the things in the press, I'll pass.
