Jennifer Hudson to Play Oprah in Biopic?

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

A producer is coming up with his names for an Oprah Movie and Jennifer Hudson is first on his list:

John Dixon is working on a new unauthorized movie project on the Bigger Than Life broadcast mogul, Oprah Winfrey. This will be the first ever attempt to inspire a motion picture dramatization of Oprah Winfrey’s rise to fame from her humble beginnings in rural Mississippi. Dixon says his original movie idea covers the media queen’s trials and tribulations, from her troubled childhood, to becoming an anchorwoman, her relationship with family and friends, her romance with Stedman, her purchase of Harpo Studios, to her many humanitarian contributions. “There is no way that the story of the most influential, successful and powerful woman in television should go untold. Oprah deserves and earned this type of ‘Big Screen’ honor and there should be no delay in making this first of its kind movie a reality. Oprah positively inspires countless women daily on her more than popular, Oprah Winfrey Show.” Dixon states that his story will be part fictional based around factual events. Dixon says his original idea derived from his many encounters of both women and men, who named Oprah as their personal role model and/or hero. Dixon is also the first to suggest that Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson play the lead role of Oprah. “I feel that Hudson will no doubt rein in another Academy nomination for her portrayal of Oprah. I see many similarities in Winfrey and Hudson, not only do they look and act alike as in (The Color Purple and The Secret Life Of Bees) but they also seem to have the same positive vibe.” Dixon believes that his “O-Project” will be a huge hit among millions of people across the globe. “It’s just a simple success story on achieving the American Dream!”

It would be a good look for both of the ladies if you ask us.  Your thoughts??

  • slimpickens

    While like most of us, I admire the success of Oprah however, her history does not inspire me. She enjoyed many of the temptations that most people of her generation did not. And unfortunately,if people were to follow her earlier examples,they may not be as fortunate as she has become. I salute her success but am cautious about her earlier lifestyle choices.

  • roni

    How about having an actress play Oprah (one of the richest most powerful women in the world) instead? Jennifers my girl and all, but I’m tired of singers and rappers trying to be actors.

    Actors spend their lives perfecting their craft which is what I want to see, not novices being made uncomfortable. But then again at least it ain’t Beyaki.

  • AlekWekJunkie

    LOL @ Roni i know right. she probalby want to try to play O, she’ll be campaigning for it along with the deveil (her Daddy). Just in case u didn’t know, they (Knowles & co.) tried to shut down this anti-B site, the sight is back with a new name:

    that site is da business!!!

    I know white folks think all black people look alike but what is the excuse for people here who actually claim that JHud looks like Oprah??? Aside from the extra lbs and some curly weave #2, what else? JHud would be great if somebody was doing a Chaka Khan biopic but not Oprah. I would co-sign on Viola Davis (they gotta keep her out of the sun for a few months before though) and maybe even, Brandy, Regina Hall or Gabrielle Union (hey, we can take some creative license here). The main thing that sticks out about Oprah are her wide-set eyes, flat-ish nose bridge, and full lips… all of those ladies I mentioned could be plausible substitutes with some creative makeup work. JHud’s small eyes and pinched nose are ALL WRONG.

  • LEA

    lol at all you haters .. stfu and get over it.. j hud is hott .. The only bytches hating are probably beyaki stans mad she’ll never get an oscar.. get over it…..
