Instead of Angelina Jolie, Which of These Actresses Would You Choose To Be Cleopatra?

Angelina Jolie As the Queen of the Nile? Is Hollywood in Denial?  The Following List of Actresses Would Be Better Suited for the Role.

I’m a huge Angelina Jolie fan, have been for a very long time, and probably will be for some time to come. That being said, I think there are a BEVY of other beautiful and talented actresses who could portray Cleopatra Queen of the Nile far better.  Word on the street is this movie is based on the book Cleopatra: A Life written by Pulitzer-prize winner Stacy Schiff.  I haven’t read it yet, even though it’s been available since November 2010. Perhaps it follows the belief that Cleopatra is descended from the Greek Macedonian, Ptolemy Soter, of the Ptolemy dynasty, and friend to Alexander the Great.

Rumor has it that Angelina Jolie is slated to play the ill fated Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra, lover to both Julius Caesar and Marc Antony, and an iconic figure both in history and in cinema. However, if Angelina Jolie wasn’t going to be Cleopatra, which of the following actresses would you choose to play the legendary role?

  1. The black girls should play Cleopatra is either Paula Patton, Kerry Washington, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Jessica Lucas

    • Hmm, I don't know those last two. I will have to check them out. But I just had a thought. What about Danai Gurira who plays Michonne on The Walking Dead? She is such a ninja. And so intense. She would do the role of Cleopatra some serious justice.

  2. I would recommend these black girls, Kerry Washington and Paula Patton as Cleopatra.

  3. Ooh, good choice. I love Kerry Washington.
