Beyonce to portray Angela Davis and Wesley Snipes to portray James Brown + Nick Cannon gets a job

Film director Rachid Bouchareb is currently casting a biopic of the life of civil rights activist Angela Davis. And according to THR, he wants Beyonce to play the leading role:

“I want Beyonce Knowles to play Angela Davis,” he said. “It’s a great dramatic role for her.”

Dang as much as people hate on Beyonce's acting skills everybody wants her in their movie. She has also been tapped to play Eartha Kitt in a life story as well as "Ginger" in the movie- remake of Gilligan's island.

And according to Black Voices Spike Lee has been vocal about wanting Wesley Snipes to play James Brown in an upcoming movie about his life.

He intends to use James’ real vocals for the musical score.

It has been formally announced by Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President for Alternative Programming at NBC, that Nick Cannon will become the new host of NBC’s series “America’s Got Talent” when the talent-competition returns for a new season next summer.

Good to see him doing something besides running behind MiMi’s crazy tail.
