A photo is circulating that shows what Emma Stone and Steve Carell look like in their roles as Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in the upcoming Fox Searchlight movie “Battle of the Sexes.”

Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the movie focuses on the landmark 1973 tennis match in which King beat the older Riggs in straight sets — a win that was trumpeted at the time as a milestone for the women’s movement. The match was reportedly watched by 50 million viewers in the U.S.

Here’s the photo, which was released on Twitter …
