Kate Mara is an actress best known for her role in the Netflix series House of Cards. A rumor is circulating that Mara has been cast to play a role in a TV movie about the Cleveland kidnappings of Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus.

The movie is said to be a Lifetime movie about the events of Ariel Castro keeping the three women prisoners in his home for a decade reports The film is said to be produced by Sony Pictures.

I will say she seems to be going rather big time right now and putting her in a made for TV movie on Lifetime seems like a step down. According to this rumor, Mara herself debunked the casting via Twitter with a link to a story on the role and a comment saying, "Wait. I did? I should call my agent..."
