I Love This Story. I Would Watch This Movie

I was told how one studio head said in a meeting, ‘This script is fantastic. Let’s get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman'. When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn’t be Harriet, the executive responded, ‘It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference.’

The resemblance is uncanny.

Well at least when it was explained WHY she would be a bad choice, he didn't say "well, we can just put her in blackface."
