Oh my god. I was about to write this post but then I just saw on Instagram that Glennon Doyle is making her book Love Warrior into a movie!!! and she’s asking for cast suggestions.

Knee deep in rewrites of the Love Warrior screenplay. I am just beside myself with gratitude this morning. I truly believe that this movie is going to free people.

Dearest Marissa: Thank you for breaking from your incredibly timely and important work writing and producing at @handmaidsonhulu to create this masterpiece. I can feel your fire and wisdom in every line. Dearest Oprah, Emily, Carla, Harpo: I am so proud of our All-Girl Band.

Dearest all of you: I hope you love this. We are going to have so much fun. Perhaps we shall have a premiere party where EVERYONE is invited and all of us stay home in pajamas and carbs and text each other our feelings about the film? R.S.V.P. Yes, No, Maybe?

I have my dream about who will play me….But our team wants this community’s ideas: Who do you think should play me? Abby? Craig? Sister?
 Big pain can result in beautiful art. Carry on, Love Warriors.

Followers have suggested:

  • Sandra Bullock (No! She’s great and all but no!)
  • Kristen Bell (are you kidding me! Love her too but also no!)
  • Reese Witherspoon
  • Rachel McAdams
  • Brie Larson
  • Holly Hunter younger incarnation
  • Kristen Wiig

  • Kate Hudson
  • Rachel Brosnahan
  • Emily Blunt
  • Ellen Page
  • Emma Watson
  • Amy Brenneman
  • Keri Russell
  • Allison Janney
  • Leslie Mann
  • etc.

Note: I am scrolling through the replies and I’m thinking Leslie Mann is the best suggestion to play Glennon.


  • Rachel Bilson
  • Courtney Cox
  • Sophia Bush
  • Gwendoline Christie
  • Kimberly Williams
  • Zoe Deschanel
  • Rashida jones
  • etc.


  • Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) – most popular choice
  • Ruby Rose
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Charlize Theron
  • Pink
  • Janelle Monae
  • Hillary Swank
  • etc.


  • Benjamin Bratt
  • Justin Bldoni
  • Naveen Andrews
  • Lin Manuel Miranda
  • Chris Evans
  • etc.

And more.

Okay so here’s my vote:

  • Leslie Mann for G
  • Sophia Bush for sister
  • Gwendoline Christie for Abby
  • Justin Baldoni for Craig
  • And a Janelle Monae-style finish for a group dance at the end of the movie.

And that’s all I got done this past hour. Like I was trying to say, I’m having trouble IRL facing my responsibilities.

but I’m still sober AF.
