    Oprah, 60, will be playing Richard Pryor’s brothel running grandmother, Marie Carter, in Lee Daniels’ duplicitous biopic on the legendary comedian.

    Pryor, who died from a heart attack in 2005, had a notoriously complicated relationship with his grandmother. Pryor grew up in a house of prostitution run by Marie, when at 10 years old, his mother Gertrude walked out on the family.

    This is in addition to the recent announcement (which also included Oprah along side Daniels), that Mike Epps will play Pryor.

    “@theoriginalbigdaddy, @eppsie, and me just finished a great 1st read session. #RichardPryorMovie,”

      • LMMFAO ….is she taking over the hollywierd quintessential slave role from the great Cicely Tyson?

      • Oprah gonna own that role! She probably already knew she was gonna be the one to play the Madam. All those African girls she has to play with when nobody’s looking. Oprah like giving her hoes the commands.

    1. Yeah, I heard the real grandmother was tough as nails, but loved Rich. Had to be in her line of business, JoJo dancer was a good movie. Underrated

      • Correct. I was just about to say, this sounds like JoJo Dancer. We already saw that. What could Lee Daniels have to add to the story that Richard Pryor left out? He told his own story. This is ridiculous.

        • they want money…even if it mean re-telling dead folks shit. They dont care, they’ll do that shit again so they can get bread again.

          • ‘they want money’
            Yep. Just like Solomon Northrup’s story (12 Years a Slave) had already been done well by Avery Brooks and Co. They try to act like these stories haven’t already been told.
            Anyway, I hope this turns out good.

    2. When I heard her name with M.E. I knew she was gonna put herself in the movie. She gonna be yaass sir’n and portray Richard ‘ s grandma as ni&&a as she plays all her roles. Just cause she’s in it I’ll wait for bootleg.

            • @Glok9, You’re On Point! These Coons need to learn we don’t need them, they NEED US. Blacks set trends if the Black community buys it then it’s a GO, if We don’t then IT’s A NO GO! AS soon as the Whites find out The COONS no longer have Power and can’t sell their COONERY in the Community, they’ll drop them Jigaboos like Yesterday’s News! They all say they don’t Owe US anything and they’re the “NEW Black” which is really the Ole SAMBOW. Then WE should PART WAYS because we don’t owe them S*ht either except for our utter disgust at their massive deception. Whites created them and Whites can have them. BOYCOTT!

          • He is a Hebrew Israelite. You know the ones that stand on the corner, screaming bible verses at people, insulting Black women, wearing outfits looking like Shonuffs gang in The Last Dragon. That’s why he is typing in all caps.

            • You got that right Rah. Just a hollerin’ fool who does say something funny once in a while.
              He’s starting to border on being sexually over the top to some women who have not encouraged him. Ick.

    5. It’s kind of strange for a so-called Billionaire to latch on to a Homo Film Director like Lee Daniels, when most people Oprah has enough power to produce her own films, I believe Oprah is put out there for window dressing to keep to make it seem as though to the world that Blacks in America have no complaints about racism in America, when for the mere fact that Oprah, a so-called Billionaire can’t hardly do anything on her own in a big way is proof that institutional racism in America, bu is alive and well, I may see this film, but I don’t think Mike Epps is right for the part either, Richard Pryor was an average height guy who was skinny and used his physical characteries for his comedic routines,as for his grandmother, I would have rather seen Phyicia Rashad play that role, she is a very good actress, even GREAT on stage.

      • @Ent Goon, You should have seen the photo with Oprah, Epps And Daniels. They look like they have turned Epps out and if they havent, they r certainly working on it. And I dont mean that in a good way
        jmo

    6. If Lee Daniels is directing, her performance will be salacious and cruel. No mammies here, she’ll be a bonafide whore because Lee Daniels hates Black women. Her role as the cheating wife in “The Butler” was a setup for this one.

      The backdrop of the brothel is perfect for Daniels to get off on his twisted views of Black female sexuality. Expect scenes of sexual deviance and cruelty because in his hands our sexual nature becomes a bludgeon he can beat us with.

      I don’t like anything this dude makes. He’s so hateful, I can’t see how he walks around.

      • You may be onto something. Ever since Monsters Ball, I have had that same feeling about LD and BW. Precious was the nail in the coffin.

    7. After watching the shameful racist coverage of the events in Ferguson this coon oughta put her money into a black news channel. Her and tylesha both.

      • TOTALLY AGREE HERE ,.WHERE THA FUK IZ BIG MOUTH OPTAH NOW ,..BUT SHE WANT YOU TO GO OUT WATCH HER SATANIC FILM WITH SPIELBURG, SHE ADORES HER MASS LIKE A GOOD RICH BED WENCH SHE IZ,..FUK HER BIG FAT JUICY RICH AZZ ..SHEDEVIL!!

      • Damn Smarter, usually agree with you, but I thought MSNBC did a really good job.

        And to GUF, MSNBC made it very clear that the trouble makers were outside agitators. The bulk of Ferguson is made up of lower middle class folks who own their homes. That is NOT a crowd who f*cks up their neighborhoods.

        • I caught or call myself monitoring CNN. NBC is definitely more balanced. They pissed me off letting that gf of the cop tell a third party story over and over. You didn’t hear the girl trayvon was TALKING TO until the trial. It was utterly biased bullshit IMO. Had the jury heard her story calm and with no attitude from her maybe one or two vote differently.

      • They were trouble makers and gang bangers who were brought in to make black people look bad.

        Ferguson is a lower middle class community. They were NOT going to destroy their own shit and they are tax-paying home owners.

        that is why they were protesting. THEY PAY TAXES and the cops salaries are based on taxes and they were not going to be told by these cops to stay inside. Fuck that.

        So they had a constitutional right to assemble and that was undermined by rioting and looting people from different locations.

      • @Glok9, u are right. In fact 1 of the people from over there said that the journalist was killed last year some time.
        And the last true President we had (that was actually voted in)
        Was John F. Kennedy

        • SMOKE AND MIRRIORS AINT NONE OF THAT SHIT REAL ..THIS PREZ GOTTA WAY WITH ALOT OF BULLSHIT ,..AND IN HIS 2YRS LEFT WHERE DA FUK DOES HE THINK HE GONNA CALL HOME ??

      • Yeah U seen that shit too! And that horse and not to mention that Masonic time capsule! And what makes it so bad that the airport if U look at an area view, the runways are shape like a swastika sign! I’m telling yall, we need to band together cause shit done got real!!

        • It’s been “real” sista, for quite some time. They’re just going back “old school”, being blatantly disrespectful murderous, non chalant ass mutha f*ckas! There are going to be “casualties of war,” we as a people just have to step our game up, by ANY means necessary. Love & peace loved ones! 🙂

      • GUF LOOK UP THESE NUTS I KNEW YOU WAS A DIK RIDING FAGGOT FOLLOWING ME ,..BYTCH NIGGA YOU KNEW NOTHING OF MK NAIOMI TIL O POSTED THAT SHIT TWICE AND GONNA TELL PPL LOOK IT UP LIKE IT WAS YOUR FIND ..LMAO DIK RIDER FUK YOUR SECOND HAND KNOWLEDGE YOU BIT FROM A NIGGA YOU CLAIM DOESNT HAVE ENGLISH AS HIS FIRST LANGO AND DONT USE COMMA BUT YOU CAN PICK WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF MY SHIT TO MAKE YOURSELF SELF SEEM RELEVENT COCK SNIFFER , FUK OFF LAME !!

    8. Can’t we find some new niggas to act? Damn tired of seeing the same ole step n fetch its. Smh this is why I don’t support black movies!

    9. LEE LOOKS BAD IN SOME PICS LIKE HE GOT HIV OR SOMETHING.

      ICE CUBE SAID IT BEST BIG DICKS IN YOUR ASS IS BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH.

    10. swear black women love talking bout empowerment but they play whores.

      every role oprah was in was about lesbians.

      yeah she played Sophia in color purple but she was cool until her character dissed the white woman and then she was beaten and raped by whites and she went insane and she served the white woman she dissed.

      oprah was humiliated on film back then.

      purple is a sluts color ask semiramis.

    11. imagining Horprah playing a whore is quite shocking but she did do a sex scene with dutty d*ck Terrance Howard!!!!
      she nothing but a flimsy fanning who coons after white people!! this flimsy fanning had Justine Timberlake on her show
      he’s silent racist just like them white pasty fruit cake
