    She looks like Anita more than Kerry Washington does, and she’s a good actress.

    That would’ve been perfect casting, but I don’t think it would’ve gotten made on a scale like this with her in the role. She’s not a name.

    Rose is the better actress of the two.

    It would be great for Anika Noni-Rose to get a starring vehicle like this. I feel like her character on The Good Wife should have been made a series-regular, as she fit in with the entire cast perfectly (even though we’ve seen how they don’t know what to do with their actual regulars, e.g. Archie Panjabi, or Matt Czuchry in season 6B). 

    I’m still excited to see Kerry Washington in this. She was a solid actress before Olivia Pope and this will be a good reminder of the layers she has as an actress.

    I meant no disrespect to Kerry Washington or her abilities. In fact, she’s impressed me with her work in Ray, The Dead Girl, Life’s Hot in Cracktwon and the Scandal eps Run, Where’s the Black Lady?, The Fluffer, The Trail, Sweet Baby, and Happy Birthday, Mr. President, and I’ve no doubt she’ll turn in a strong performance in Confirmation. It’s just that Anika looks a lot more like Anita. Hell, she even sounds like her, and that’s why I suggested her.

    I think that based on interviews of both Washington is more like Hill than Rose. Rose has more talent as an actress though.

    Anika is very talented. But, let’s see what Kerry can do.
