Halle Berry Replaced By Angela Bassett in 'The Mountaintop'

Halle Berry Replaced By Angela Bassett in 'The Mountaintop'

Halle Berry picks up some fruits and vegetables at Whole Foods during a solo grocery shopping trip on Wednesday (June 22) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 44-year-old actress put some fresh lettuce, avocados, peppers, grapes, and other items into her cart.

Halle‘s replacement in the Broadway production of The Mountaintop was just announced! She canceled plans of starring in the show earlier this year due to custody issues.

Angela Bassett will play a hotel maid opposite Samuel L. Jackson‘s Martin Luther King, Jr. in the show, which begins performances on September 22.

FYI: Halle is carrying Loewe’s Viento Lambskin Hobo bag in Metallic Gunmetal Grey.

    Angela is such a better actress, she doesn’t have to try everything she does is flawless…

  • lurker

    Better casting. Halle should just retire.

  • http://dankee27 keekee

    Stop hatin on my girl Halle

  • CAB

    I might be in the minority but I have never cared for Angela Bassett and
    fail to see what the big deal is. She is neither the best as many say or the worst actress..she just is.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    And meanwhile Oscar Winner Halle Berry stars in computerized shark movies that go straight to DVD. Next up, SyFy originals.

  • Gabe

    I don’t know why there are pictures of Halle shopping at a supermarket. Cmon, slow news day? But I do appreciate how good she looks in those shorts anyway.

  • unknown

    Cool she does her own shopping. Looks great

  • bevol

    They allow so few black actors into Hollywood. Samuel should NOT play Martin Luther King Jr. Just ridiculous.

  • Elise

    Halle canceled because she knew that she wasn’t talented enough to star on Broadway. The better woman, better actress got the job. I’m sure she will be great!

  • nelson

    Angela is a wonderful actress. Halle is not even CLOSE to being in her league. Congrats Angela!!!!!!

  • Brit

    hmmm….Olivier seems to have disappeared. I knew that wouldn’t last.

    @CAB #5

    It’s True AB is not that Great, I don’t dislike her, just saying she is not head and shoulders above Halle
    You nut jobs hate Halle because she is BEAUTIFUL

  • haha

    @LoriLori: We hate Halle because the girlfriend CANNOT act. All she knows how to do is flash her ta-tas. That gets old way too fast.

  • vince

    Yes! So happy that halle won’t ruin this show. Can’t wait to see it

  • oh no

    I heard she’s going back to tv, big fail. bwaaahaaaa lol

  • JJ fact check

    JJ fact check—Halle/Team Halle said it wasn’t because of custody issues, Gabe already supposedly picked out a place for extended lease two weeks before Halle started her cameo role in New Years Eve. She dropped out most likely because of scheduling conflicts with Cloud Atlas Oct. 12, The Mountaintop which official opens October 13th, September 22 is not the opening. Here’s one of the many articles stating Oct.13th.
    Jared you should know Broadway playing dates the preview and official opening. Bassett had to rearrange her Pasadena theater acting schedule. Plus Halle has never done theater other than Improv etc. Not within her limited range even if she was playing a maid. Angie has lots of theatrical appearance and is better suited with Jackson on Bway than Halle. Plus she was trained at Yale. Halle went to a couple Jr colleges briefly and has a hack acting coach Ivana Chubbock who only mentions Berry when promoting her book.

  • doubt it

    @SUPERFLY: Doubt it…he whacked in a cup for her. Know fact–LA Fertility Clinic Glendale.

    I love Angela Bassett and also Halle’s grocery shopping as normal people do :)

  • KC

    Is it really necessary to list the items she put into her grocery cart?

    Is it really necessary to list the items she put into her grocery cart?

  • paola

    but in us is to touch the fruit and vegetables with your hands?

  • sunseeker

    Lots of actresses are seen doing their own shopping at Whole Foods and Farmers Market, shopping is not rocket science, Even Halle is bright enough to do that.

  • sunseeker

    By the way custody issues have been resolved ages ago, so why not to the play. Just asking.

  • sched. conflict/lack of talent

    @sunseeker: scheduling conflict and/or lack of talent. She can’t be on Broadway October 13th when the play officially opens if she’s in Germany for a given time starting October 12th?

  • JoseLyn

    She is flawless, 44? <3

  • Mark

    Talentless, never could act. get lost frog legs and cellulite.

  • CAB

    Halle has an Oscar, Emmy, SAG, Golden Globe,(s, Naacp Image
    awards any many others for her skills so BS on she can’t act She also has produced three films and definitely made her mark in Hollywood. She is also respected in Hollywood by her peers. Pretty women are a dime a dozen in Hollywood but they don’t have Halle’s success. Halle is a self-made woman who fought hard for roles and is very ambitious. Some can’t give her props ..so be it. The only reason Bassett is going to Broadway in the fall is due to Halle’s scheduling conflict with Cloud Atlas. It would have been nice to see Samuel Jackson and Halle Berry together again. I’m sure Jackson is somewhat disappointed since he and Halle are good friends.
