  1. First of all, Zoe Saldana is not even Black. She is a proud Latina. Nothing against Zoe Saldana. I think she is a good actress and a beautiful woman. But can’t the sistas have something for ourselves…dang! Nina Simone was a beautiful Black female phenomenom. We do not celebrate Black women & girls enough. Surely there are several Black beauties that can play the heck out of that part! Kimberly Elise comes to mind. I mean really. Give the sistas a break. God knows we deserve one.

  2. Uh… Yeah… First of all she is not even Black. She is Latina. I have nothing against Latina women. But geez people. Can’t the sistas have anything for US. Nina Simone was a beautiful Black female phenomenom. Surely there are some sisters in the acting game right now that can do the job. I mean really!

  3. Yes i agree too light. if you are portraying a person they look is the first step to getting the portrayal correct. I think the daughter of Nina Simone said it best

  4. This has to be be most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Zoe Saldana is too light to play Nina Simone. Was Denzel Washington too dark to play Malcolm X? Was Cicely Tyson too dark to play Coretta Scott King?

    Perhaps, Zoe Saldana is too untalented to play Nina Simone. If she has acting chops remotely similar to the stars mentioned above then, we will see Nina and not Zoe’s complexion. Geez!!!
