The world would not have been ready for Halle as Aretha. Glad she declined.
Although Halle Berry is a great actor I dont think she could do Aretha Franklin justice if she chose to play the part. I am also glad she declined.
Dr. Dre I think should stick to being a producer I am not excited or looking foreward to hearing him as a rapper maybe he will prove me wrong then again he is like 50. There is a time when a man must give it up.
