Jessica Chastain is Tammy Faye Bakker

The Eyes of Tammy Faye is an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelists Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and 80s, they rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity.

Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire.

We talked with Jessica Chastain about developing this script over a decade, her humanity and the innovative business savvy ideas that are still in practice today.
