Oprah To Play Richard Pryor’s Pimp Grandmother In New Biopic, Alongside Mike Epps

(madamenoire.com) Looks like Nick Cannon lost out on that much coveted Richard Pryor role, even after that very unfortunate hair cut.

Instead the role went to fellow comedian Mike Epps. And judging by Epps’ past in the dramatic field (see Sparkle), I would say this is a pretty good choice.

And if you didn’t believe it was official, all you have to do is look at Oprah’s Instagram page for confirmation. A couple of weeks ago, Winfrey posted a picture of herself, director Lee Daniels and the film’s star after one of their first read throughs of the script.
So what role will Oprah play?

She’s going to be a pimp.

If you know anything about Richard Pryor, you know his formative years weren’t exactly…conventional. As a child Pryor was raised in his grandmother’s brothel in Peoria, Illinois where his mother was a prostitute. His mother abandoned him when he was 10 and his grandmother, a notoriously violent, woman raised him.

Richard Pryor’s widow, Jennifer told TMZ, once Oprah got the script she was desperate to play Marie Carter, Pryor’s grandmother because she’s anxious to play a more, meaty and gritty role after her performance in The Butler.

Taraji P. Henson Dishes on Her Character in 'No Good Deed'

(essence.com) Taraji P. Henson gives us a little more insight into her character Terri in the upcoming thriller, No Good Deed.

“She had that one good moment where she wanted to be a good samaritan,” says Henson of Terri’s decision to let Colin Evans (Idris Elba), a stranger, into her home.

Evans goes on to terrorize Terri and her two children. But not without a fight from Terri. “There was never a moment where she was helpless,” says Henson. “She was always thinking, ‘How can I get out of this.’”

No Good Deed opens in theaters September 26.

Is Claudia Jordan Joining ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta?'

(eurweb.com) Rumor has it, Claudia Jordan and Porsha Williams now have more in common than just “Dish Nation.” Jordan is allegedly joining “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Peter Thomas (who became a housewife himself last season) informed the Sports One audience about two new women joining the cast.

He name dropped Jordan as a new cast member of “RHOA,” said she had chemistry with the cast and was extremely beautiful.

“Bravo crew came out, Kenya [Moore], new girl Claudia, my wife, Kordell [Stewart]. We shot at the bar last night until 2 in the morning,” he said before later adding. “The two new girls are extremely beautiful, so there was a lot of chemistry in the house.”

Although Thomas didn’t give out Jordan’s last names, his interviews follows a similar report that Jordan and singer Demetria McKinney are the newest additions to “RHOA.”

There’s no word yet if Jordan and McKinney are replacing any the cast members from last season. Phaedra Parks could most likely be one of these cast members since her role is limited due her husband’s legal woes.
