‘The Color Purple’ Cast Reunites on ‘Oprah’Published by Clay Cane on Monday, November 15, 2010 at 12:00 am.
Oprah is making her 25th and final season huge. She’s already landed interviews with Michael Jackson’s children, the first interview with Ricky Martin after he came out and now she is bringing the entire cast of The Color Purple together, which airs today.
The Color Purple is one of the greatest films of all time. Based on the book by Alice Walker and directed by Steven Spielberg, the movie received 11 Oscar nominations and lost all of them. Nonetheless, the flick has been praised for its powerful acting, perfect cast and emotionally charged scenes that have kept fans entertained for years.
Not one cast member is left out, including Desreta Jackson (young Celie), who in an interview with BET.com two years ago said she hadn’t been a part of many of The Color Purple events. In addition, Oprah and Whoopi Goldberg discuss their legendary feud. Check out the clip below.
