zoe should not be playing NINA SIMON for the simple fact that she does NOT LOOK LIKE HER.

i reject this bleached portrayal of this original beautiful dark beauty.

Glady knight should play an older version of her or either whoopi goldberg. Toni braxton could play a younger version of her.

This role will either break or make her. She better deliver which I trust that she will.

Zoe and the casting directors were out of line for putting this Domican in this film. Zoe has nothing in common with Nina.

Hollywood aint exactly good on finding actors/actresses to portray legends...just look at Beyonce portraying Etta James. They look nothing alike

I guess they picked Saldana to appeal to everyone and not just black people, which is sad really

It's called acting. Her not looking like her isn't enough for somebody not to do the role. That's what make-up is for.

Sure they could have chosen other actresses to play the role. But Hollywood has a 2 in the store policy with Black actresses. lol

Makeup? Dude they don't even have the same features and Zoe Saldana was the worst choice for this role. In this case maybe Kimberly Elise should be allowed to play Lena Horne.
