Halle Berry to play white woman in next role
Reply Quote
Halle Berry’s next movie role will center on the true story of Tierney Cahill, a teacher from Reno, Nev. who accepted a challenge from her sixth grade class to run for Congress in 2000.      

      The actress will portray Cahill in the DreamWorks drama, titled “Class Act.” The filmmakers have taken a rare turn in casting an African American actress to portray a woman who is white in real life. Sources close to the production tell Variety that it was more important to find the right actress for the role rather than the right white actress.     

      In 2000, Cahill decided to grant the wishes of her students and run for Congress on the condition that they would help with her campaign. The single mother ultimately lost her bid to an incumbent, but she ended up winning 35% of the popular vote.            

      DreamWorks recently acquired “Class Act” in turnaround from Revolution Studios with the goal of putting it into production in May or June.      

      In the meantime, Berry is currently filming the DreamWorks drama "Things We Lost In the Fire," and will next be seen in the adult thriller "Perfect Stranger," due in theaters May 2007 from Sony.

Oh hell naw!!! I was ok with her playing a Bi-racial role in the slave movie "Queen" all because she is mixed with white and black but this is going way too far!Trust me,she is going to catch some serious heat on both sides of the color fence on this one!

Note: Because she has 1 drop of black blood in her which law says that she is a negro! I love me some Hallie now but this is going to hurt her! She is not white! She is considered black and if she plays a black role then ok, a bi-racial role,then ok but this here! No way toots! This is not going to fly with the media and the people,now you think that some folks had a hissy fit over the movie "Monsters Ball" ! The shyt is gonna hit the fan on this one watch!

Well traditionally, if you are any part black you are considered black.  I know I know, but I know people that are 1/4 black and are considered by themselves and others as black. 

This deal with Halle Berry is that she was on the black bandwagon for a while.  First african-american to win an Oscar.  When in reality was probably the first bi-racial (black and.....) to win the Oscar.  Her being mixed didn't come up then.

I can't wait to see the make-up and the transformation.

I didn't say she was a sell out.  She is half white, 50/50, cut right down the middle.  I see that.  Now let's talk about everyone else that's going to make a big deal out of this. 

Did you know that Halle Berry had a nose job after Boomerrang?  Do you think that she would play a white woman if she still had her black nose?  (Just a side question!)
