    I will say that the « issue » with Viola is that she is one shade darker than Michelle lol

    Estrelas, you know disagreeing with someone is also having an opinion? Like we are allowed to do that.

    I also don’t think Davis will be right for this role I just find any notion of these stills confirming that to be totally bizarre.

    There are thoughts but I’ll keep them to myself.

    The incoming SMASH. Why we already using the word “miscast” after just a few photos?😭

    Because we saw the photos of Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen

    Because, let’s be honest, of the three here Davis quite clearly looks the most (albeit barely) like the real deal even with those ludicrous things above her eyes.

    I honestly disagree. I think Michelle really resembles Betty in those stills – especially the one where she’s standing on the table. They already shared a few similar features, particularly the smile. That’s my opinion, of course.

    Viola would look better if they didn’t go overboard on the eyebrows. But my main issue isn’t really the look (which isn’t great), but more so that the Obama presidency was so recent. Like Viola is basically Michelle’s age lol. We don’t feel far enough away from it yet.

    I agree. This is ultimately moot to the stills though.

    The stills have me excited, but the performances I can’t wait for. I don’t think Uzo looked ANYTHING like Shirley Chisholm either, but they judged the performance. Come though, Queen Viola! You got this!!

    And I never said otherwise. But you also wrote like two posts just to make your point. I just don’t think the makeup looks good and I already had my reservations regarding her casting choice. I completely agree with you that actors don’t need to be exact copies of the people they’re playing, but when you see that makeup work… it probably would’ve been better not to do much tbh. But again, I did say I hoped she would change my mind with the performance.

    I see no issues with it either. Furthermore, this is a couple of stills. Lol
