Natalie Portman’s dad pens pregnancy thriller

By Sean O’Connell A medical thriller penned by a fertility specialist wouldn’t necessarily heat up the acquisition offices of most New York publishing houses.

But would that reaction change if we were to tell you that the author was Natalie Portman’s father? You bet your Oscar-winning rear-end it would.

Dr. Avner Hershlag’s debut novel, “Misconception,” reportedly is being shopped at major publishing houses. The story, according to the NY Observer, follows “a tale of cloning experiments gone bad and the compromised embryos of a U.S. first lady.”

Hershlag describes the story as being part of a “reproductive thriller” genre. And given the fact that his daughter is coming off her highly publicized pregnancy (documented on the lengthy Oscar-campaign trail), theres sure to be interest in the novel once it’s out.

And if there is ever going to be a film adaptation of “Misconception” somewhere down the line, can we suggest Ms. Portman for the role of U.S. first lady?

We’re just saying.
