    I know this subject is rather old and Mary J. Blige has been offered this part about 4 years ago, but I can TRULY see Viola Davis playing Nina Simone. While I am a HUGE fan of Mary MUSICALLY, I dont think she has the acting chops to pull this role off. Not hate…just being honest. This would be HUGE for Viola. I can definitely see her doing this role some justice. Wanted to know you guys thoughts???

    That would be great. I thought you were releasing some news that Viola has taken the role over from Mary lol. If Viola were to play her I can see Oscar nomination #3 coming her way lol.

    Mary keeps saying it is, but doesnt know when. It doesn’t have a date yet. I do think its going to end up not happening though. Maybe it will get the support once it has the right people playing in the movie.

    If this project proceeds, WHOEVER gets the lead role better be good at lip-synching, because Nina Simone had a unique, distinctive, and inimitable voice.  “Mississippi Goddam” indeed!

    With so many pushovers, I doubt this will still materialize. Or if it does, it will follow the route of that Jennifer Hudson biopic, “Winnie”.

    Whatever happened to Winnie?

    Anyway. I think Viola Davis has the acting talent and face…but she may have to lose some weight. I dunno. In The Help she looks sort of big. Maybe she’s smaller in real life.
