  • Daniel

    Beyonce is Ok as an Actor! I would LOve that Jennifer Hudson play that Role! Now she is in shape and more available to do that tipe of Role again! I choose Jennifer Hudson!

  • Mya

    @Daniel:

    Beyonce is the BIGGER STAR

  • http://J.net Ka simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I forget beyonce

  • Daniel

    Is not the Bigger star! she is a very talented woman, ok! But let’s face it! Jennifer Hudson fits that type of Role! Drama, that’s why she won the Oscar for Best supporting Actress! I would Like To see Beyonce In a comedy or Accion Movie, Like Catwoman or something! I love Beyonce But Jennifer Hudson is made to do that Type Of movie! She is just One of a kind! I LOVE her!

  • http://J.net Ka simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate everything about her

  • jaye

    Nooooooooooooo!

  • Chris

    Yooo! Be? seriously? NO! love to be, But is not for her! Halle berry or Jennifer Hudson would be more Exciting and Nice to see! Sorry But… Be? No!

  • ciara

    @Daniel: jennifer ain’t that good of an actress, she got that oscar by luck. and sense she got it now all of an second everybody want to bash beyonce. i love jennifer but, bey is just as great so stop the hate. by the way bey killed obsessed and cadillac records but, she did suck bad in dreamgirls, pink panther and carmen so hopefully she’ll do excellent in this movie.

  • Anita

    As much as I like Beyonce, I just cant handle another musical. If she wants to be taking seriously as an actor she should really stop doing thses singing roles – I swear this is like her 6th one. I personally think that she should start doing smaller supporting roles along side A list actors so she can learn from them. Then slowly build up to a really big and award worthy film which will give her some critical acclaim. You can tell she wants that Oscar but she needs to learn the basic’s first cos at the moment shes an OK actress at best.
    But I cant fault this womans work ethic – shes such a hard worker!

  • Daniel

    @ciara That’s hate? My gosh! I didn’t Know that! I love Beyonce! Btw jennifer took the Oscar by luck? another fail! Jennifer proves that she is a warrior Not matter what! she is a brilliant actress, of course people get better with the Time! but C’mon Girl, is just like that! Jennifer play her roles with so much feeling and meaning, is so strong and deep that words cannot describe my point, I’m not here to fight with you, so just let My Opinion In peace! Please!

  • laab

    I am sorry but Beyonce cannot act. And I agree with Anita she should be taking smaller roles and learn how to act. Her and Justin Timberlake.

  • Deedz

    I think we’re forgetting that Beyoncé can’t ACT.

  • Hollyweird

    No, I must agree she is not a good actress and I like Beyonce. Why not choose someone who can act and have Beyonce provide the music sound track? Thandie Newton is too old, I think Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who starred in the now cancelled show Undercovers, would be an excellent choice. Gugu can not sing but she is a wonderful actress. Not all singers can cross over successfully into acting.

  • http://justjared..buzznet.com lala

    beyonce can’t ACT.
    they should pick Jennifer Hudson to play this role.

  • Lynn

    Is Beyonce an actress? Since when? I would certainly chose somebody else for the role.

  • Toni

    I like Beyonce, but HELL NO. She can not act and she’s always in the same type of movies. If she wants an Oscar maybe musicals aren’t for her. She needs to broaden her horizon and as Anita says, she needs to be a supporting actress in a movie because her acting is questionable. Also if she wants an Oscar she needs to write a song becuase I don’t think her acting will get her one. Beyonce needs to be a producer in a movie or write a song for a Disney movie and she can get her an Oscar.

  • Dubya Bush

    @Anita: Don’t hold your breath. That’s the advice I would have given Christina. But instead of building up her resume’ she wanted to be a star like yesterday and ran into that half baked mess called Burlesque.

    Sad thing is, she’s actually a better actress than Beyonce’ and Beyonce’ herself will not reach her full potential as an actor till she does just what you said.

  • Twinkle

    Let’s hope that Clint tells B to take some speech classes. She slurs everything together. It’s all onelongindistinguishableblob.

  • Lalalove

    Is Clint losing his marbles?!?!? Beyonce can’t act to save her own life!!! DUDE, NO!

  • Brooklyn

    For the love of all that is good and holy I hope Beyonce will not be acting again.

  • Xtincta

    Neither Beyonce nor Jennifer can act. Furthermore there are plenty of actresses who can sing but won’t get considered for this role because they don’t have either of their star power and that’s a shame.

    Hollywood also needs to stop remaking classic movies. If they touch any of Barbra Streisand’s movies I will die!

  • http://www.findfoodtrucks.com/ Robert

    I love Clint, every movie he makes is awesome

  • ava

    First off Beyonce can’t act has no personality and WFT is up with Clint Eastwood, why would he put his name on this mess.

    Will Smith has never done a romantic drama, don’t think their will be a big audience to see these two in a love story, FAIL.

  • Rosy

    Yes. It’s a good choice.

  • rhonda

    so sad that CLINT EASTWOOD would do this awful movie AGAIN with awful Beyonce.

    Yesterday is was Jay-zass and willow smith gonna REMAKE annie.

    whats up Hollywood, not an orginal thought going on?

  • Mia

    I am sorry but Beyonce was blessed with fabulous looks and a good singing voice, she writes good songs and makes good clothes too, but the bitch can’t act.

  • soo

    She earns $80 million a year. i bet she not only an actress, she’s also an executive producer… ya know what im saying.. she gives them money, so she can play.

    She’s not a got actress.. plus she has a very shady and fake character. She should work on her personality first!

  • LMAO

    I think it’s a pretty good idea , Will Smith is great and so does Beyoncé , you people are haters or have no taste , she’s not Meryl Streep okay , but she is more talented ( act ) than actresses than i see now in movies !
    And anyway we all know that if Clint is directing it’s going to be amazing .
    TEAM BEYONCE
    Ps : No one can win an oscar by luck you freak

    —–WHY?

    ——-WHY?

    ———WHY?

  • http://JustJared starquality

    I agree she can’t act, but she would bring thousands out to see, her fan base is huge

  • anonymous

    @anon Ymus:
    Why, Why, Why because she has money that’s why. The days of people auditioning for a role don’t seem to be for those who can buy it.. Will Smith has decided he is going to buy his kids way into Hollywood, Willow in Annie, and Jayz probably have decided to do the same for Beyonce, even though Beyonce is a terrrible actress but has decided she must get an oscar like Jenifer Hudson who would have been perfect for the role.

  • Clay

    OMG another F_ING REMAKE??? This movie has been already been done, redone, and done yet again. Why do we need yet another interpretation??? And sorry people, Beyonce cannot carry a tune compared to the women that went before her!

  • lee 328

    I think Beyonce is a talented singer performer but she really is not that great of an actress. Her and her husband must be putting up alot of cash to back this project, otherwise I can’t see Clint signing up for this with her as the lead. Clint is usually great at casting roles but Beyonce-No way. When I see Beyonce playng a role on screen, I see Beyonce and not the character she portrays in the film. When Jennifer Hudson played Effie, I saw Effie and not Hudson. The same goes for Halle Berry.

    Beyonce is a good singer with pop songs. She has never made a great song that was a masterpiece I mean come on Single Ladies thats her best really? And no she cant act its laughable. It is a bad sign when people laugh at a sad moment. I think that means you have failed as an actress when that happens. Also what is up with all these damn remakes, cant anyone leave well enough alone, I mean come one really?? And furthermore its seems like the only roles Black actors/actresses can get is to remake a great film, Karate kid, A star is Born, Annie. I am sure there are people who are writing original stuff help make that

    I would watch to see how they incorporate Beyonce into this classic movie. This will be interesting!

  • The

    C

  • The Academy

    This will not end well.

  • lw

    to be a good actor, one must learn to enunciate words. Beyawnce cannot do this. did any of you watch her horrific “performance” in Obsessed? “Where K-yo?” i don’t give a sh*t that she’s black, ghetto, whatever. if she had a modicum of talent, i would be her biggest champion. she DOESN’T. and she dances like she’s having a seizure. Eastwood must have dementia to have agreed to direct this POS.

  • lol

    Poor Clint. He’s finally senile.

  • yo sista

    @Mya: BEYONCE is an overrated b!tch!

  • Cathy

    Papa Knowles wont be happy when she doesn’t get the role.
    But honestly the girl can’t act.

  • Nicky

    I like Beyonce but this is such a slap in the face to all those talented actresses out there. The ones who truly can act and can’t find a job to save their lives. Beyonce can’t act and really needs to take acting lessons.

  • Jokergurl

    Clint Eastwood is still awesome, I agree with the Jennifer Hudson comments though, she’s a better actress than Beyonce.

  • anon Ymus

    —-WHY is Beyonce wasting time on this, the stalest of stale
    Hollywood retreads that’s ALWAYS been given to stars on the
    way out of the limelight (Gaynor, Garland, Streisand).

    SHe’s NOT that old yet!

  • Talent

    LMAO @ you haters but check this out:

    Beyonce was attached to this project for the past 2 years. They had her on board before anyone else. Russell was supposed to play the older man role but he’s too old. Clint got on board when he heard of it and really got into it when he heard Bey was the Star. J.Hud’s acting can be found in any black baptist church as well as her singing. She’s no phenom. Beyonce KILLED her drug addict part as Etta James and got H’Wood’s attention. OBSESSED is one of the highest selling DVDs and IT as well as Cadillac Records is on permanent rotation on cable BY REQUEST on differernt channels.

    Beyonce was born for this part and is going to nail it. It’s way more than a musical and has lots of emotional acting parts for her to prove herself.

    Beyonce IS TALENTED. Give up your hate or drink more.

  • Queen Bey

    YEEEESSSSSS!!!!! Clint knows real talent or he wouldn’t have signed on. She’ll be great in this. Can’t wait!!!
