Jamie Foxx wasn't know for CHARACTER acting???????????

In Living Color?

People knew he had potential

Zoe just doesn't have the depth ... even in the makeup pics, you see Zoe play acting 

ie in stills of What's Love Got To Do With It ... you see Tina Turner

I don't think Whoopi could play a younger Nina but she'd nail the older Nina
Maybe Zoe will surprise us but..ummmm... yeah, good luck with that

skin color and looks wouldn't matter as much because we know she has the acting ability to pull off big character roles

this has more to do with zoe's acting ability than her skin ... 


if that's the case, where was the uproar when jaime foxx got the role for ray charles? he wasn't known for his acting prowess. you can argue that he was a good impersonator but he did make a movie called "booty call" tbh.




isn't that what acting is?

*cocks head to side*


its part of acting but being a good impersonator doesnt mean you're going to be a good actor. afion crockett for example. great impersonator, horrible actor.

there was a time when Whoopi couldve acted this role OUT

but I dont know if she cares enough anymore, too much of Whoopi would come through if she wasnt invested

but it would be a very interesting role for her, maybe her best yet

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



james its not just about complexion this time. i know sometimes bhm gets stuck on the whole ls/ ds thing and i find it ridiculous. but in this case its about not choosing the right person to represent the main character. zoe just does not even look believable in the makeup. when i watch a movie based on someones life i do expect the actor playing the part to look like that person. i think that is important for people to connect with the character. there are other talented actresses who i believe are willing and able to play this role and they wont need a costume to do it. she looks like a fool imho.
