And on Broadway......
We told you previously that Halle Berry had landed a role on Broadway, but she pulled out of the play a few months ago as a result of her custody battle. Now it has been announced that fab chick Angela Bassett is headed to Broadway to replace Halle.
Angela Bassett is replacing Halle in the Broadway production of "The Mountaintop," which also stars Samuel L. Jackson as civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Angela will now play the role of a mysterious maid named Camae who visits King at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis the night before his 1968 assassination.
Angela starts her performances of the Katori Hall written-play in September at the Bernard B Jacobs Theatre, with an official opening set for Oct. 13.
