    😭😂😭😂😭 Exactly. I am not really interested in this because 1) it’s Showtime and 2) it’s Viola Davis. Every single performance of hers is the same. She just screams and cries, but not saying she’s not a fantastic dramatic actress. This will just be Viola Davis playing herself in a wig. But we shall wait and see.

    Viola Davis is real life is a funny, charismatic, witty, classy, and fun personality which closer to the personality of Michelle Obama.

    I just hope Viola remembers that Michelle O never let snot run down her face and into her mouth.

    How would you know? You know Michelle Obama as she is to the world, not her internal life. That’s what I’m assuming this show will be exploring.

    Between this and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, I’m excited that Viola is getting to show her range.

    Some of you are confusing her so called “lack of range” with the roles that she has been given. Unfortunately for her she hasn’t been given the kinds of material that her white counterparts have been given, such as Meryl to play queens and lead romantic comedies, do foreign accents and such…..even though that’s exactly what her Julliard education trained her to do.

    I’m excited! Hopefully this turns out well

    Viola will do Michelle extremely proud, as this is a passion project of hers. No doubt award bodies will take notice…..

    Because no one over the age of four does it except Viola when she’s A C T I N G.

    I wish there was a down vote button on Goldderby.

    Knowing Davis, I feel like that would be a big reason why this is a passion project for her.
