If you haven’t noticed, we like to have a little bit of fun with our social media audience. Last week, we asked who would be cast as Governor Kay Ivey in a movie, and our Facebook audience had some funny (and accurate) answers.

The top pick: Kathy Bates
Kathy Bates earned the most votes in this serious discussion. Perhaps it was because of her appearance as a governor in the Netflix film The Highwaymen (2019). Though she played the role of the governor of Texas, our audience thinks she would do just as well playing the governor of Alabama in a movie.
Though Kathy Bates and Governor Kay Ivey pursued different career paths, one in entertainment and one in politics, the two women both have been in the spotlight for many years.
Other options—including a voice actor
But Kathy Bates wasn’t the only celebrity that our audience could picture as Governor Kay Ivey. Here were some of their other humorous suggestions:
- Whoopie Goldberg
- Helen Mirren
- Brittany Spears
- Kathleen Turner (as a voice actor)
