her daughter said this movie is based on a relationship that never existed bc the man was a homosexual. this writer has drafted a narrative.  

Zoe saldana got a real nicca nose. she might be able to do this.

Gotta understand that there are a lot of black actresses that don't get parts that they'd be better suited to in favour of a small group. 

It'd be different if this was any other type of movie, but when it's based on someones life it'd be nice if they had someone that actually looked like the person they are portraying. Instead we get this.

Lol I dont think thats the issue...They could have at least tried to find someone that favors her. This is an auto of her life, no? personally I think Viola Davis would have been better, but hey I dont call the shots....

I consider Zoe Saldana black.. But let's be honest, the girl is heavily diluted! So they wanna use partially black people to do an alternative version of blackface (blackerface, let's call it) instead of just hiring a woman who looks like her spot-on???

And Zoe had the audacity to call this reverse racism. Woman, please!

how?

forrest whitaker wore a prosthetic nose in the king of scotland.

several black actresses auditioned for the role and it looks like they didn't do as good a job as zoe did. lets stand behind this woman and support her in playing the biggest role of her career.

Unfortunately, they're not about to stop now. Contracts have been signed, big bucks have been dropped, filming is in process. Hopefully it'll go straight to DVD. I worship Nina Simone. I simply cannot picture Zoe singing Mississippi Gotdam or 4 women in blackened face and prosthetic nose.

Didn't know he wore a prosthetic nose but it's hardly a stretch to conceive of forrest whitaker as being ugandan. And of top of that, he is an outstanding actor, actually even better than Denzel. Way back when in The Crying Game, I was convinced he was an Afro Brit. I found out years later that he was AA.

forrest whitaker wore a prosthetic nose in the king of scotland.

several black actresses auditioned for the role and it looks like they didn't do as good a job as zoe did. lets stand behind this woman and support her in playing the biggest role of her career.

a prosthetic nose is a lot more different than a prosthetic nose, plus blackface, whatever else added to make u more believable in a role that many other ppl could've done without all dat....i also think it's naive to think she was the best person who auditioned

common now....i personally wont be supporting this movie, it's bullshiit and a slap in the face to nina simone and her family...absolutely not will i ever support, so that they can think they can pull off more of this fuccery? what's next? a white woman in black face playing a black role? absolutely not

I don't see what's to be gained by not supporting it.

I really don't have an interest in seeing it, but I probably will.

Didn't know he wore a prosthetic nose but it's hardly a stretch to conceive of forrest whitaker as being ugandan. And of top of that, he is an outstanding actor, actually even better than Denzel. Way back when in The Crying Game, I was convinced he was an Afro Brit. I found out years later that he was AA.


zoe is an outstanding actress as well. i don't see why everyone is against her playing this role. i don't think her being lighter is an issue. if nina samone's estate approves and if zoe had the best audition tape, i say let her do her thang.

are there more pictures than just the 2 in the OP? i read that mary j blige almost had the role but turned it down. imho zoe is a HUGE upgrade over miss mary. imagine how bad that would have turned out lol.

that's the thing tho, her family (not sure if they are the executioners of her estate as well) does not even support this movie....that should tell EVERYONE something, they dont support the storyline or zoe saldana playing the role

I see he does.
Good
 
The only reason he's not as popular as say, Denzel, is that he is not a good looking man, with his lazy eyelid. But he's better than him (and that says a lot coming from me, because I LOVE me some Denzel). Forrest is a character actor and he can nail any accent.
 
The difference with Zoe Saldana is that he looks (and sounds) convincing enough to play the part he played in the King of Scotland. She on the other hand does not remotely looks like she can capture the essence of Nina Simone

i think saying she is wearing "black face" is a reach. have you seen the movie bamboozled? that is black face imho.

several actors have worn makeup to appear lighter/darker for their role. i don't see it as a big deal.  i don't see how its a slap in the face when one of the best black actresses is portraying her. a slap in the face would have been mary j blige's non acting ass getting the role:

" Mary J. Blige was originally cast as Nina Simone, but dropped out due to scheduling, per the movie's screenwriter, Cynthia Mort. In this http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/mary-j-blige-on-the-power-of-precious-and-her-nina-simone-biopic-20100223" rel="nofollow - Rolling Stone article from 2010, Blige seemed excited about the role: "Playing a character like Nina Simone is playing myself," she said, "because Nina Simone was a manic depressive, drug addict, alcoholic, cursing wild maniac that I was, but very talented, so people would get that."

I won't be supporting this.

And when this flops, Hollywood will say 'see? the only black movies that sell are tyler perry ripoffs".

SMH.

You have got to be kidding with that. She's cute and scrawny and all but she's not even close to being outstanding. And she doesn't look a thing like her and the mere fact that they have to blacken her face for the role, when Nina was all about afrocentricity and proud of her negroid features is a joke.à
And her estate DOES NOT APPROVE.

Hmmm Whoopie?
Did they reach out and did they have the funds

preciate it. those pics look a lot better than the ones in the OP.

i take the backlash zoe's getting to be an overreaction. i'm sure she'll do Ms. Simone justice. people saying "they could have found a darker actress" are seriously hindering the integrity of the film.

nevermind the acting, just make sure she's dark enoughWink
