So since Zendaya has reportedly dropped out of her role for the Aaliyah biopic, can I please nominate the lovely and talented Jurnee Smollett to take over this role?!
She has been in movies such as Tyler Perry’s “Temptation”, “Eve’s Bayou”, “The Great Debaters”, and is a phenomenal actress! I would like to see her in more movies personally.
I think she could definitely pass for favoring Aaliyah, at least a lot more than Zendaya could. Her face might be more detailed than Aaliyah’s is, especially when she smiles, and her complexion might be a little lighter, but I think she would be a pretty good fit for the role!
What do you guys think?
*all the photos are from them acting in movies. Jurnee Smollet’s photos are from Tyler Perry’s “Temptation”, Aaliyah’s photos are from “Romeo Must Die”
