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

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.

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 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 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."

dude how is that a reach when the pics are right there in front of u? i havent seen bamboozled and i think it's irrelevant to this....her black face is OBVIOUS that's one of the indications that she shouldn't be in this role, that shiit never looks authentic...one of the best black actresses in playing her? seriously? 

viola davis, angela bassett, kimberly elise, taraji p henson, halle berry,....these are amazing black actresses james, zoe does not compare to them

You just don't get it. Do you know anything about Nina's life? Her values, her character, her story, her music, her militancy? Because if you do, I don't understand how you would think that Zoe Saldana is the epic actress that is gonna capture her essence on the big screen

They are hindering the integrity of their own film.

And it didn't have to be one or the other. They could have gotten a dark skinned actress that is good at acting.

The more I think about it the less I care.
She's an actor she's suppose to transform oand be a chameleon on the screen.
I'll see if she can.

I don't believe you have to pick actors based on how they actually act in real life.
That's not the point

I personally am not dissing her. I've said before that I like Zoe. She's just not right for the part and the casting director needs to be flogged. I'm sure she wants to work.

@hairdo- i hear you, but we weren't there for the auditions. she probably did a much better job than those women for this role.

just like denzel couldn't have pulled off ray charles as well as jaime foxx. but he's still the better actor.
