It'll be grand ...


Actress Zoe Sladana is about to portray singer, Nina Simone.
In the upcoming biopic movie.
Now although I feel the movie,
 itself will catch some flack.
Her performance will be a hit.

Zoe is black when it is convenient. A lot of black people are complaining about her being cast as Nina.

She's very talented and hopefully this movie will expose more people to Nina Simone's beautiful music.

I have been reading people upset that they made her face look darker and not hired an already darker colored african american actress to play the part…. Let's be real, it's a movie to play any part you are made up from the make up artist to look like the real person they are playing. tired of all of naysayers...

Actors are here to act. Sometimes that means wearing masks, costumes and or make-up. Nothing new. In that regard I can't believe the relatives, fans and general hating public are up in arms over this. Whaaa? I mean there has to be a reason Zoe was chosen over other actresses. They must have saw something they wanted in her. To portray this as blackface, as if it had anything to do with the way white performers denigrated black people back in the day is a far reach. And really the amount of hate being shared and thrown towards Zoe is just so ugly. It says more about the person throwing it than anything or anyone else. Jesus Christ, it's a movie. Zoe didn't kill anyone! Some perspective please.

Oh the haters! Just because Zoe is a beautiful women they feel they have to criticize her. I agree with all comments posted here, she is an actress portraying a role. Glad to hear it will be a success!

Anyone complaining that she's not black enough are just as guilty as those who say someone is not white enough. Racism is racism.

Good on her, Gillis says it completely right.

I think the point some people are making is that there are at least 3 other African American actresses that would've physically fit the role better, but instead they chose a Dominican/Puerto Rican actress who has had more box office success and is more "attractive" in some opinions. Viola Davis, Danai Gurira, or Lupita Nyongo look more like Nina, and would not have needed the black face and nose prosthetic and, in my opinion, are more talented.

Agree. Just actress doing her job band from what i have read about Nina, who is portraying her us least thing family shld be worried about. She was kind of the naomi campbell of her day, and a single mother who beat her daughter from a young age.

People have to understand that there is more than meets the eye. Viola Davis may have been considered, but she already has a hit television show and is committed to doing that. Plus, perhaps salary was an issue, who knows? Lupita Nyongo is an Oscar winner and considered an "A" actress, which equals high pay. Perhaps the producers had a certain budget that didn't fit more qualified or more applicable actresses, or there were time constraints. We really don't know but one things for sure, bashing Zoe because she got this role is not fair nor is it productive. Let's see how she does and then state your opinions. Christian has already told us that the movie will be a hit, so let's hope it is. Black, brown, white, yellow, who cares? It's a role and she is an actress portraying a black woman. Who cares whether she has prosthetics to look more like Nina Simone? So many roles in so many movies they have done this, why not for this movie? Let it be...

Didn't Nicole Kidman wear a prosthetic nose to portray Virginia Wolfe? I think she got an Oscar for that role.

Zoe can't act.

TV shows have hiatuses when other projects can be worked on. Oscar winner does NOT equal high pay. This is all speculative obviously, but if an actress is passionate about a project, the pay doesn't matter. Oh, and Viola has 2 movies in post-production along with her TV show.

Nina's daughter does not like the casting choice and says the movie is full of lies.

An apology of sorts ....

INTERESTING.........
After a sleepless night & an uptight day.Of trying to work out why I missed this.As well as trying to explain to all that wondered, quite rightly what went wrong. Just like myself.So, back to the beginning.I started this bog almost 6 yrs ago.I went through every prediction.WHY?.Well sometimes, at the time of making the prediction it doesn't make any sense.Or, you think it's about one thing.Then Bingo, the penny dropped.Well, after many hours of looking.I came across the"TOLD YA"below.It's not directly about the election.But it is about Trump....What he's doing/about to do.I knew that somewhere something so "HUGE".Would have been mentioned somehow.What do you all think......Friday, April 2, 2010
Trump’d himself………One day, Donald Trump,Will get the comeuppance….That the Karma Gods have been saving for him.It’ll be a big one…..
But not till after he pulls a stunt.

As the saying goes......

Be very careful what you wish for, or in this case vote for.Donald "Babyfart" Trump, is a Grifter/Conman/Snakeoil salesman.He tells you it's Snakeoil.So you know it's con.Yet people bought his BS, and voted for him.If any of you who voted for him.Think for one minute, that he'll do what he has said.HE WON'T.Just like his playmates, he's a Politician, granted not till Jan 20th a professional one. But a politician never the less.But it is a long way to the Jan 2017 deadline.....Why don't people like a black President?Yet vote for a man who's 3rd wife was a call girl....

Oh, just a minute Trump, hates immigrants.Oh, yet married 3 of them.Erm..........See the pattern here.It's a case of "Do as I say, not as I do".I know, those that voted for this moron.Are still in the Honeymoon phase.But, trust me, buyers remorse will set in soon.But this time there's no return policy.Other than that."He never get's the keys to, The Whitehou…
