Attention all black actors if you ever dreamed of being in a Woody Allen production, I am sorry to inform you that you will have a better chance of winning some money on a lotto scratch off.
Famous yet controversial director Woody Allen says that won’t hire a black actor unless the role requires one. Huh? That like saying Yes all of my best friends are black. During an interview with the New York Observer Woody was asked why black actors are not featured in his films. Well old Woody all of a sudden got very uncomfortable with the question.
“Not unless I write a story that requires it. You don’t hire people based on race. You hire people based on who is correct for the part. The implication is that I’m deliberately not hiring black actors, which is stupid. I cast only what’s right for the part. Race, friendship means nothing to me except who is right for the part.”
Woody then went on to say he is friendly with Spike Lee. Wow!
I personally do not care if Woody cast a black actors or not, there is new blood behind the scenes now and they are writing roles for everybody. If Mr. Allen thinks that his philosophy on hiring black actors is acceptable than so be it. We are talking about a man who had an affair then married his adopted daughter. So with the being said I am moving on………………….. NEXT!
Well if at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again. Words sung by the one in a million R&B Princess Aaliyah. These are truly word to live by.
Aaliyah’s family have now decided to participate in a biopic for t heir beloved Aaliyah. This biopic will not be with the Lifetime Network. Aaliyah manger and Uncle Barry Hankerson, is the one orchestrating the biopics production. The movie will include Aaliyah’s full story andthe singers music. The music will not be featured in the Lifetime Movie. Aaliyah’s family has already chosen who will play Aaliyah. Singer B.Simone will play Aaliyah.
I think she looks like Aaliyah, but can she act? I won’t judge. I am just so happy the family is doing their own movie. Take that Lifetime and Wendy Williams.
The Aaliyah movie will be ready to be released in theaters in 2015
