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.

    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.

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

    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!

    @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.

    JJ fact check Says:

    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.

    sunseeker Says:

    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 Says:

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

  24. 24
    sched. conflict/lack of talent Says:

    @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?

    She is flawless, 44? <3
