Casting Trivia.....

The Smiths are continuing their acting dynasty with daughter Willow in "Kitt Kittredge: An American Girl Mystery" (?) a story set in The Depression. Jill Scott (my girl!) will play a lead role in an upcoming Tyler Perry movie (?) called "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" (??). We'll have to see how these 2 turn out, they both sound pretty sketchy right now. Ludacris and Nick Cannon have been cast in the basketball movie "Ball Don't Lie" about a b-ball player and his conflicting life on the streets.

Speaking of casting, here is some interesting trivia:

-Did you know that Halle Berry turned down the Sandra Bullock role in "Speed"? (Probably busy making the classic "The Rich Man's Wife")

-Will Smith turned down the role as Neo (that went to Keanu Reeves) in "The Matrix"? (Whew!)

-That Angela Bassett turned down Halle Berry's Oscar winning role in "Monster's Ball" and then had the audacity to be pissed that Halle won (she probably thought that legacy should have been hers) and talked greasy about Halle , saying that "it's amazing what happens when someone decides to show their body?" Sour grapes, girl. By the way, has anyone seen Angela lately?

Its sad that you can report such falsities freely as you're doing.

Angela Bassett did turn down the lead role in Monsters Ball but that was the only correct statement you posted about her. She was nothing but happy when Halle won the Oscar, they were even at the ceremony hugging and saying "I love you, girl."

I personally think Angela should've been the first black woman to win the Best Actress Oscar since she has more talent in her pinky finger than half of Hollywood.

Angela never 'talked greasy' about Halle, she only said that Monsters Ball wasnt the role for her and that she is in total support of Halle.

Sour grapes are for people who have no talent or potential in their field. In Angela's case, shes just wading her time until something of substance comes her way. People with her talent can do that, people with none can only strip.

Why are some denying that Ms. Bassett was simply showing her true colors in that Newsweek article. It was so clear.
