Rumors ran rife that Nicole had been cast as the iconic TV star, opposite Javier Bardem as Desi Arnaz, in January.

The reports led to a bit of controversy over her casting, and prompted Will And Grace star Debra Messing to aggressively pitch herself for the role on Twitter.

Debra retweeted a string of Tweets from fans saying she would be better suited to the project - including fellow sitcom favourite Valerie Bertinelli.

EXPLAINER: Why is 'excited delirium' cited at Chauvin trial?

  EXPLAINER: Why is 'excited delirium' cited at Chauvin trial? MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The attorney for the former Minneapolis police officer on trial in George Floyd ’s death revisited the disputed concept of excited delirium Tuesday in an effort to show that the force Derek Chauvin used was objectively reasonable given Floyd's resistance. Chauvin, 45, who is white, is charged with murder and manslaughter. Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man, was arrested outside a neighborhood market on May 25, accused of trying to pass a counterfeit $20 bill. A panicky-sounding Floyd struggled and claimed to be claustrophobic as police tried to put him in a squad car.

Debra had dressed up as Lucille's sitcom character Lucy Ricardo to recreate some of her scenes, including her ad for Vitameatavegamin and her flailing attempts to work the assembly line at a chocolate factory.

However, Nicole's casting was defended by Lucille and Desi's daughter Lucie Arnaz, who posted a Facebook video giving her two cents.

Lucie acknowledged: 'There seems to be a lot of discussion about Nicole Kidman. "It should be Debra Messing!" “It should be Carole Cook!" I don’t know.'

'We are not doing a remake of I Love Lucy. No one has to impersonate Lucy Ricardo, nor do the Vitameatavegamin routine or the chocolate factory routine or any of the silly things,' she added.

'It’s the story of Lucille Ball, my actual mother, not Lucy Ricardo, and her husband Desi Arnaz, my dad, not Ricky Ricardo. There will be humor in the film but it is a story of the two of them, and how they met, and what went right with finding the show, what went wrong – their relationship, their love affair.
