If Zoe Saldana landed this role and last time I checked she was a GREAT ACTRESS!!!! It’s called acting folks!! Welcome to Hollywood! Land of the “favorites”, politics, It’s not who you know it’s who knows you. Since when did everything get based off of WHO looks like who?? There are dark and lovely models that are NOT DARK and wear wigs for the shoot. When Jamie Foxx played Ray Charles, Was he OLD? Does Will Smith look exactly like Mohammed Ali? Did Michael Jai White look exactly like “Mike Tyson” ? Really? Why are these type of conversations circulating? Somebody felt Zoe Saldana was the best woman for the part and she got it. Point Black Period. Please come up with some better actresses than Mary J Blige wanted to part. Really? Actresses??? I love Mary J but I’m just saying!!! WTH? Welcome to Hollywood Baby!!!!
And this is why there is usually NO PRESS ON SET. Thanks Media!!!
