Amanda Seyfried to Play Elizabeth Holmes in Hulu Series ‘The Dropout,’ Taking Over From Kate McKinnon

Seyfried takes over the role from Kate McKinnon, whose exit from the project was reported in February. The series tells the story of Holmes, the enigmatic Stanford dropout who founded medical testing start-up Theranos. She was lauded as a Steve Jobs for the next tech generation. Once worth billions of dollars, the myth crumbled when it was revealed that none of the tech actually worked, putting thousands of people’s health in grave danger. – Joe Otterson, Variety »
