You better THINK, think about what you're trying to do to me! Halle Berry has been confirmed to portray Aretha Franklin in the life of the soul legend. No dis-R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the undisputed Queen of Soul whose voice I love, but Halle is way too pretty to play her. I know Hollywood often pretties up actresses who play real life characters as they did with Beyonce in the Etta James story. But Etta hated this--Aretha wants it!?! Unless Halle wears a prosthetic nose, jowls, a fat suit, and lip-synchs, I Say A Little Prayer for this one.
