NICOLE Kidman is a dead ringer for US TV legend Lucille Ball in the first trailer for her new movie Being the Ricardos.
The Australian, 54, stars as the comedy great who played the title role in 1950s sitcom I Love Lucy.
The show featured the exploits of middle-class New York housewife Lucy Ricardo and husband Ricky, played by Lucille’s real-life husband Desi Arnaz.
Nicole has won the praise of Lucille and Desi’s daughter, Lucie Arnaz, 70.
She said: “Nicole Kidman became my mother’s soul.
"She crawled into her head.
“I don’t know how you do that.
"She cared very deeply about this part. It shows.”
