I. Am. Not. Feeling. This. At. All., AT. ALL.
It looks like Zoe Saldana will be playing the role of legendary singer Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic. Many of Nina’s fans are expressing that they are not happy with the choice, stating Zoe is not black enough or too pretty to play Nina.
Originally, singer Mary J. Blige was previously linked to the starring role, but later backed out.
I feel as though Hollywood has plenty of black actresses to choose from that could have done Nina justice. Zoe Saldana is black, but she’s not Nina Simone black.
What do you all think? Is Zoe right for the role? Take the poll below:
