Forest Whitaker To Play Colin Powell This Time

Wednesday, October 2 by
Forest takes his Oscar everywhere.  

Forest Whitaker will be playing former Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense Colin Powell in the biopic Powell, which looks back on the subject’s life as all biopics by definition do.

But seriously, Powell? It sounds like the premise and title just sort of oozed out of some screenwriters body as he lay on a couch, passively taking in C-Span during a nap.

Not much else is known about the project. Colin Powell hasn’t been party to much discussion recently, and his weapons of mass destruction assertion that predicated the Iraq invasion was like a decade ago so NO ONE EVEN CARES ABOUT THAT ANY MORE.

Rather than end with a funeral or moving speech, this film will probably just end with Powell getting some frozen yogurt, only to discover that he left his wallet at home.
