I wasn’t going to post this because it sounded so ridiculous that I thought it had to be a joke but after seeing major publications pick this up, I guess this ludicrous story has some merit. Harriet screenwriter and producer, Gregory Allen Howard, says when he first started working on the movie in 1994 that one studio executive suggested Julia Roberts to portray the legendary slave turned abolitionist. Yep, Caucasian Julia Roberts.

Here is what Howard said during a Q & A published earlier this month: “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.’”
Now, let’s just say this was said merely as a joke during a meeting. Even if that was the case, it’s still a tone-deaf thing to say & honestly not far off from what Hollywood can be capable of. Remember when Emma Stone was cast as a character who is meant to be of one-quarter Chinese and one-quarter Hawaiian descent in Aloha? Or when the casting of Caucasian actors, particularly Scarlett Johansson, drew accusations of racism and whitewashing in the United States upon the release of Ghost in the Shell? I guess it isn’t too far off base that a studio exec would suggest Roberts as Tubman. 
As we know now, Cynthia Erivo plays her in the film which also caused minor controversy because, while she’s African American, she’s also British so that started its own minor debate before the film was released. Erivo is getting some Oscar buzz for the role & the film is doing decent box office so everything has worked out in the long run.

The longest running original series in History’s network is set to releases a new sequel series, however, it will be on Netflix.

On Tuesday, Netflix announced it has handed out a straight-to-series order for the drama Vikings: Valhalla, a continuation of creator Michael Hirst’s show Vikings. Netflix has picked up 24 episodes of the series. While 24 episodes have been picked up, t’s unclear if those will be split into two, 12-episode seasons or as one.

Vikings: Valhalla picks up 100 years after the History series and dramatizes the adventures of the most famous Vikings who ever lived — Leif Erikson, Freydis, Harald Harada and the Norman King William the Conqueror (also a Viking descendant). These men and women will blaze new paths as they fight for survival in an ever-changing and evolving Europe.

While Avengers: Endgame took the world by storm this past spring in becoming the highest grossing film of all time, the pop culture community has not been able to stop talking about the film that is now the first R-rated film to gross 1 billion world wide at the box office. Joker has become nothing short of a phenomenon. As the film prepares to begin its push for Academy Award nomination, the films star Joaquin Phoenix has commented on the films incredible success at the box office. Phoenix stated,

It’s not the box office but the reception that’s been vindicating. It’s the fact that I get emails from people telling me that the movie made them look at their sister who suffers from schizophrenia in a different light. Ultimately, the movie is about the power of kindness and the lack of empathy in the world, and the audience seems to have picked up on that. It’s amazing that a movie that was supposed to inspire, as they put it, mass mayhem really has just inspired a bunch of people dancing down staircases. I think that speaks more to our times than anything.
