Viola Davis Is Scared to Take On Her 'Suicide Squad' Role!

Viola Davis poses for photos with her three-year-old daughter Genesis while attending the GBK & Stop Attack Pre-Kids’ Choice Awards Gift Lounge on Friday (March 27) at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood.

The 49-year-old actress recently opened up about taking on a role in the highly anticipated movie Suicide Squad.

“You know what that’s a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller,” Viola told Entertainment Tonight. “I’ve been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I’m a little scared because she’s really unapologetic. She’s on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island — that’s just my opinion, Amanda!”
