Lifetime released a 2-minute promo for its upcoming movie, Betty & Coretta. In the movie, Bassett plays Coretta Scott King, while Mary J. Blige plays Betty Shabazz. The promo features two stars discussing the project.
I think Angela Bassett is a wonderful actress, but could they not find a actress that looked more like Coretta? Bassett is a dark skinned woman where as Coretta was a light skin woman. Did this not mater?
It’s about capturing the true character. Jamie Fox over all didn’t look like Ray Charles but he damn sure transformed into him when he stepped in front of that camera.
I don’t think they should have cast MJB in such a huge roll. Music is her thing, acting, not so much.
