Allison Janney goes maternal for I, Tonya


Recently seen investigating the murder plot at the centre of The Girl on the Train, Allison Janney has signed on to join the cast of Miramax’s in-development biopic I, Tonya.

The story of Tonya Harding’s rise through the ranks of the figure skating world and her complicity in the infamous attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan, The Finest Hours helmer Craig Gillespie directs the picture, with Margot Robbie starring as Harding, and Sebastian Stan as husband Jeff Gillooly.

Janney is reportedly set to play Harding’s mother LaVona, an eccentric woman known to talk to her parrots and who was notably hard on her daughter in ESPN’s recent 30 for 30 series on Harding.
