Paula Patton has been offered a role in the remake of the 1976 film “Sparkle.” The film is being remade by Salim and Mara Brock Akil – the same team behind her most recent film “Jumping The Broom” as well as creators of the popular show “The Game.”
It is uncertain what character Patton would be portraying, but based on looks she’d be a perfect Sister (originally played by Lonette McKee). However, based on how she’s been typecasted I think she’d play a better Sparkle (originally played by Irene Cara)–although she’s a tad bit old for the role if you ask me (the girls are in high school). I just don’t know if audiences could accept her as a drugged out hoe with a diva attitude. But everyone has to step out of their comfort zone at some time.
What role would you like to see Patton play?
