Mary J Blige Starring Opposite Angela Bassett
Back in June Mary J. Blige announced she would be playing Malcolm X's wife, Dr. Betty Shabazz, in the Lifetime movie 'Betty and Coretta' about Malcolm X and Martin Luther King's wives [click here if you missed that].
Well Mary, I hope you've been taking your acting lessons because Angela Bassett has just been attached to the film...
Angela Bassett is slated to play Martin Luther King's wife Corretta Scott King.
Betty and Coretta follows both women as they try to move on after the assassinations of their husbands.
Malcolm X was murdered in front of his wife and four children during a speaking engagement at the Audubon Ballroom in New York in 1965 and Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee on the balcony of the Loraine Hotel in 1968.
