Halle Berry Climbs Mountaintop on Broadway

Halle Berry picks up some supplies from Frends Beauty Salon on Friday (June 18) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old actress is rumored to star in The Mountaintop, Katori Hall’s play about Martin Luther King, Jr.’s final hours.

If Halle accepts, this fall on Broadway, Halle would play a “sexy chambermaid” who visits MLK in a Memphis hotel room the night before his assassination.

Samuel L. Jackson recently read for the role of MLK.

    Congratulations Halle!

    A Broadway role will cement her status as a superstar. And before all the naysayers get on here saying she’s got six toes, or she can’t act, not that Halle is being offered the role.

    The post says ‘if she accepts”, so there is no question that this role is being offered for her. Halle’s going to play this “sexy chambermaid” well, and look good doing it.

    what the f**k has she done in the last decade? all she does is walk around with those aviators on— ugh next

    What has she done in the last ten years “t”?

    Let’s see. In 2001 she won an Academy Award, then she played bond girl Jinx in Die Another Day, the X-Men series, Catwoman, Perfect Stranger and more. And during this time she’s won another fifteen awards.

    Halle has been named the cover of the famoud Vogue September issue:

    Vogue’s September Cover to Feature Halle Berry

    There are barely three months left before the crucially important September issues of our favorite fashion glossies go to press, and word just came out the the biggest, baddest of them all, Vogue, will feature actress Halle Berry on its cover.

    If the rumors are true (and we hope they are), this cover will only be slightly less than groundbreaking. There hasn’t been a black woman on a September cover of American Vogue since Anna Wintour broke ground and put Naomi Campbell on the front of the September 1989 book.

    The cover will coincide with the release of Berry’s new fragrance, Reveal, which will be revealed in August, and the premiere of her new movie Frankie and Alice, which is set to hit theaters this fall.

    Halle Berry for September Vogue cover

    Halle Berry will grace the cover of American Vogue’s September issue, according to reports that cite inside sources at the magazine.

    The issue of the fashion bible that comes out in September is usually the best-selling edition and features the coming trends for Fall.

    It had been rumoured that Gwyneth Paltrow might be the cover girl for the issue after she reportedly did a photo shoot with legendary photographer Mario Testino last week.

    If Berry does appear on the front of the September issue, she will be the first African-American woman to land the issue’s cover since Naomi Campbell in 1989.

  • Stop there……

    @gross girl:

    The picture is about Ms Halle…..Not about you and your insecurities step away from the mirror…

  • angel

    Oh god! More of her horrible acting!

  • Jena

    Explains why she’s been taking acting lessons. If anybody needs them it’s her. The brilliant play will be butchered to pieces by her.

  • sam

    I’m always so distracted by her nose job that I’ve never noticed just how incredibly short her legs are.

  • will

    People don’t go to see her movies, what makes her think this will be any different. If the producers of the play want to make any money they’d better choose someone else.

  • bobby

    OMG Halle Berry is so nasty looking. No wonder im gay.

  • Dreads

    I think she’s a great actress. Despite all the damn critics, Catwoman is still one of my favorite movies ever (you just have to think it’s a movie of its own and not following the comics). Besides, her character is Xmen is my all-time favorite. And admit it, people, her body is to diiiiie for! So fit and gorgeous.

  • POOCHIE

    Is it Frends beauty supply or Friends Beauty Supply?
    How about spell check maybe?
    I still love you JJ.

  • overrated

    LOL she has not done a movie since 3 years, her last crap was finished in 2009 we are in 2010 lol another big flop straight to DVD , no one is offering her roles in ” films” anymore pretty sad…

  • tlc

    She looks like a homeless..if i crossed her i wouldn’t even notice her..

  • Hallewood

    She’s gonna be doing some major press since her movie is coming out in Setember. I can’t wait to see her on Vogue’s cover. That cover better be slamming or else Anna Wintour is out of a job.

  • Hallewood

    She’s gonna be doing some major press since her movie is coming out in September. I can’t wait to see her on Vogue’s cover. That cover better be slamming or else Anna Wintour is out of a job.

  • seabass

    She’s got to make some money somehow, her movies are all flops. Unfortunately this will probably be also. Sam Jackson would be carrying it for her.

  • Jill

    Climbing to the top of Mount Lesbo.

  • lorri

    i cannot believe how she let herself go she looks awaful and she gained alot of weight and she looks like a total mess i guess the cover of vogue is going to have a huge amount of touch ups!

  • Tammy

    I dont understand the short leg comments. That must be a white persons thing. I never heard so many people freak out over short legs. Because Halle is not white blonde hair and blues eyes you guys want to leave these crazy comments. I doubt if most of you racist find any African American actress attractive. You guys need to run to your local community college and get an education. Hopefully it’s not to late to educated you on the beauty of different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. Diversity is a good thing! Beauty comes in all different shapes, colors and sizes.

    OH PLEASE. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT SAMUEL L JACKSON IS GOING TO PLAY DR.MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.??? THE ACTOR WHO YELLS “MOTHER F*&^KEN” IN EVERY MOVIE? THE ACTOR WHO PLAYS THE ANGRY BLACK MAN? THE ACTOR WHO IS IN EVERY CHEESY MOVIE KNOWN TO MAN? JACKSON LOOKS, SPEAKS, AND ACTS NOTHING LIKE KING JR.! I RECOMMEND JEFFREY WRIGHT FOR THAT ROLE! BROADWAY IS A PLACE FOR REAL ACTORS WHO HAVE TALENT AND WORK DAY AND NIGHT ON THEIR CRAFT. SPEAKING OF TALENT – WHAT THE HECK IS HALLE BERRY DOING ON BROADWAY IN A PLAY NO LESS???? IS THAT WHY SHE SCRAMBLE TO GET SOME “ACTING LESSONS”? WHO GOES TO ACTING SCHOOL AFTER WINNING A SO CALLED OSCAR? OH I FORGOT, SHE WON IT FOR F*&^^%KING NOT ACTING. HALLE BERRY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACT THE ROLE OF THE MAID SHE IS SO BAD! BROADWAY IS GOING TO LOOSE MONEY. SAMUEL L. JACKSON IS JEALOUS OF DENZEL AND WANTS A TONY. HALLE’S CAREER IS DEAD AND NEEDS PUBLICITY. HALLE NEEDS TO LEAVE IS ALONE. ALTHOUGHT, I MAY ADD THAT IT WOULD BE HILARIOUS TO SEE HALLE’S FROG LEGS, BIG UGLY EYES, SHORT SQUARE BODY, CHICKEN CUTLET CHEECKBONES, FAKE TEETH, BOY HAIR CUT, BIG NOSE, SQUARE HEAD, AND LONG BREASTS WITH SAGGING RAISIN NIPPLES IN PERSON. IF YOU ARE THERE, I WILL BE THE ONE LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY IN THE BACK ROW WITH MY FAKE TICKETS. HAHAHAHHAHAHA

  • http://JUSTJARED mr. DAY DAY

    OH AND BY THE WAY, SHE IS PLAYING A “SEXY” MAID???? YEAH, FITTING TO HER ACTING AND PERSONA. SHE CAN’T PLAY ANYTHING ELSE BUT A SLUT. THAT’S BECAUSE IT TAKES A SKANKY PROSTITUTION WHORE TO PLAY ONE! HALLE, GO LOOSE 45 POUNDS BEFORE PLAYING THAT ROLE. I CAN SEE YOUR ROLES FROM HERE!

  • http://JUSTJARED LOL

    NO ONE WANTS TO SEE MS OVERRATED NO TALENT BERRY, HOLLYWOOD LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE, SHE IS BORING AND CAN NOT ACT. THE PART IN THE BROADWAY PLAY IS FOR A MAID, THAT IS ABOUT ALL SHE COULD PLAY. THOSE BOW SHORT LEGS ARE HORRIBLE, AND YES SHE HAS A BAD NOSE JOB.

    God Damn;

    I like Halle Berry. I appreciate JJ’s coverage of her. For all you haters I have a simple question: Why?

    Every time there is a post about her, it’s the same people and the same crap. Where do you get that she’s a lesbian, or she’s gone downhill? She’s just walking down the street!

  • Seyana

    aww poor haters I can’t wait for Halle’s September issue. All fat ugly people here will commit suicide

  • http://JUSTJARED PLEASE

    WE HAVE SEEN IT ALL IN MONSTER BALL, THERE IS NOTHING LEFT TO SEE, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE IS JUST ANOTHER BORING SET OF PICTURES, WE HAVE SEEN HER NATURAL BORN A…SS, IT DON’T LOOK THAT GREAT, AND NOW THAT SHE IS OLD, WHAT DO THEY ALWAYS DO, SHE IS BORING, PLEASE IF THEY NEED SOMEONE FOR THE PART WITH SAM L JACKSON, GET VANESSA L WILLIAMS, SOMEONE WITH TALENT. HALLE IS BORING AS HELL. SHE WILL TRY TO COVER UP ALL THE LIES THAT SHE HAS TOLD, DAVID JUSTICE DID NOTHING TO THIS B…….CH. SHE MADE ERIC BENET SAY THAT TRASH, SEX ADDICT, AND SO ON, JUST SO SHE COULD LOOK GOOD, BUT SHE AND THAT OLD WOMAN MANAGER WILL NOT FOOL THE PUBLIC ANYMORE. GO AWAY GRANDMA

  • TravelQueen

    This comment is to all “HATERS” Halley Berry and Samuel L. Jackson are wonderful actors. You dont win a Academy Award for bad acting. They will be starring in the broadway play “Mountain Top” so get over it. Broke non acting people alway writing bad comments about others because they have no life, career, money nor class. To be honest who cares what you think of these actors, you will never have what they worked hard to achieve. They are well established in the world you wish you were. I am waiting for the tickets to come to New York with 54 others to see the play. A few want-a-be’s do not stop no show. Get over it.

  • Ms. Impatient

    am constantly writing comment about when some updated information is coming to a website on the web. I am still seeing OLD information from last year. When is Mountain Top coming to New York. I had a group ready when they lied and said it would be here fall of 2010. It didn’t happen now they saying fall of 2011 is it really coming. My comments are always deleted and they still say “BE THE FIRST ONE TO COMMENT” My comment aren’t the first stop SO STOP deleting it so other people who are asking the same question can get answers for their groups. WHEN ARE THE WEB SITES GOING TO START UPDDATING NEW INFORMATION AND DELETE THE OLD. It’s a race for groups coming out of town to plan especially when big name stars are playing in these plays. I was blessed to get tickets to see Fences with Denzel Washington and I don’t want to miss this play.
