oprah.jpgAs previously reported, Tyler Perry will be directing For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf. There are rumors of the cast, which might include Taraji P. Henson, Mary J. Blige and others. However, in an interview with Black Voices, Oprah confirmed she was be one of the colored girls.

Tyler Perry mentioned your name for one of the roles in his new film ‘Colored Girls.’ Will you do it?
OW: Yeah, I’m one of them. I don’t even know what lady I am. I haven’t acted in 10 years. We’re going to see. He’s writing a script, and let’s see what happens. I want to see it. I love the idea of getting back to acting. I’m happiest when I’m doing it. Nothing makes me happier than being on set with a movie that I really care about. Acting is fun because you get to move yourself out of your own space and become somebody else. Acting is like a vacation for me. It’s a relief.

For those of you who don’t know, Oprah is an Oscar nominee for The Color Purple and she received critical acclaim for her role in The Women of Brewster Place.

Sounds like Colored Girls is going to be a bonafide hit!

Oprah, why don’t you give other young aspiring actresses a chance? Don’t you have enough? There are so many struggling black actresses. Give someone else a chance…how much money can you make in a lifetime? If you want to be in a movie, then use your money and make one and star in it.

I think Oprah has the right to do what fulfills her, it’s not about the money. Also, her appearance in the movie will increase its chance of succeeding. It will open doors for the production of similar movies where other actresses can have opportunities, so it’s all good.

Tay H how is this movie a comedy? How was his last movie a comedy? You and Spike need to shu tup and if Spike thinks something is wrong with movies now he needs to get off his butt and make one.He made 4 good movies (mostly because of the people in them) and he thinks he can talk about people give me a break.
