BET.com's "What the Flick" blog is not happy about Angelina Jolie being cast as Cleopatra in an upcoming film. Elizabeth "Caucasian" Taylor famously/infamously played Cleopatra 5 decades ago, and some are angry that another white woman is playing the Egyptian queen again. Who really knows what skin color the historical Cleopatra had?
I don't think it's that big a deal, and the movie will be a flop, anyway. If Jolie's character isn't performing oral sex or waving a pistol around, the box office isn't big.
