Bernadette Peters, she of the Betty Boop voice and stardom in films such as ``Pennies from Heaven' and ``Silent Movie,' will play Tammy Faye Bakker in a television movie.

Peters will portray the squeaky-voiced makeup maven and former televangelist in NBC's ``Fall From Grace,' a soon-to-be-made TV movie about the travails of Bakker and her husband, defrocked televangelist Jim Bakker.NBC has not indicated when the movie will air. Nor has it said who will play Jim Bakker or Jessica Hahn, the former church secretary whose 1980 tryst with Bakker led to his resignation in March 1987 from the PTL television ministry.
