GIMME FIVE: Actresses Who Should Replace Beyonce in Eartha Kitt Biopic

As previously reported, pop diva Beyonce Knowles will portray Eartha Kitt in a recently greenlit biopic of the late singer's life. Kitt, who died on Christmas day at age 81, expressed her disapproval of the "Bootylicious" singer's casting in her life story. "I do not think I have quite the derriere of Beyonce," she said. And we believe such a legend deserves a real actress with real talent beyond singing. Here are Blindie's top five actresses who can do Miss Earth Kitt justice: Thandie Newton She was cheated in casting last year when Angelina Jolie was cast as Mariane Pearl in A Mighty Heart ---a role Blindie felt was a match-made for the Brit talent. But Kitt could earn Newton a call from Oscar Taraji P. Henson She's gaining critical acclaim and a SAG award nomination for her role opposite Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Although she consistently supports leading men, we think she would be a strong choice as Kitt. Halle Berry She definitely did Dorothy Dandridge justice on cable TV....plus Kitt herself said, "Give me Halle Berry instead!" Robin Givens We should follow up her film comeback in Tyler Perry's A Family That Preys with a hefty role as the purring singer-actress. Plus, with Berry, she starred with Kitt opposite Eddie Murphy in 1992's Boomerang! Zoe Saldana Having seen her be the "girl-to-get" in many flicks, it's time that Star Trek's Uhura tests her acting chops with a heftier role. Maybe she could pull a Marion Cotillard--who nabbed the Oscar playing much-older legend Edith Piaf.
