According to the New York Post, Scarlett Johansson wants the role of the No. 1 actress and pin-up of World War II, Betty Grable.

Not that there’s necessarily at this precise moment a script already written, greenlighted and ready to go about bandleader trumpet player Harry James’ movie star wife. This generation’s hotshot beauty just knows she wants to play the part.

Go for it, Scarlett, I say! Betty Grable still remains one of my most beloved Hollywood actresses and I feel Scarlett has the charisma, talent and looks to create a respectful portrayal of Betty.
