In “Being the Ricardos,” Kidman portrays the late Lucille Ball and fellow Oscar winner Javier Bardem plays Ball's first husband and "I Love Lucy" co-star Desi Arnaz.

​​Kidman revealed in an interview with Variety that playing Ball “was frightening but incredibly exciting.

“I fell in love with her as I was reading the script. I realized what she was doing (was) trailblazing for women,” she said.

The movie follows the lives and relationships of the former Hollywood power couple and is written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. The film focuses specifically on the couple's life during one week of shooting their popular sitcom.

Bardem recalled the first time seeing Kidman as Lucille Ball in a recent interview with Sunday TODAY.

"I was doing my test with wardrobe, the hair, the makeup, and then she came in ... and there was a silence," Bardem told Willie Geist. "They really nailed the look of Lucy Ricardo, no?"

Watch the full trailer of the upcoming film, which will be released Dec. 10 in select theaters and Dec. 21 on Amazon Prime Video.
