Actress Helen Mirren was livid after learning an American version of U.K. crime drama PRIME SUSPECT was planned - because she was last in line to play the lead role. The Oscar winner, 62, played DCI Jane Tennison in the series which aired on British network ITV for 15 years, but was devastated when she found out she failed to be considered for the same part in a U.S. remake. She says, "There was once going to be an American version of Prime Suspect and my name was at the bottom of the list to play Jane Tennison. "I was so furious, I am Jane Tennison!"
