Well, it’s official: Zoe Saldana is Nina Simone.
And if this image is anything to go by, the detractors certainly are going to have a lot to say about this latest casting.

Vibe Vixen (via IndyWire) was the first to publish the photos of a Zoe Saldana in a Nina Simone-style wig, and while her makeup wasn’t done (at least, we hope not…), her skin has been enhanced and her teeth have been prosthetically altered.
Further according to Vibe Vixen, “Director Cynthia Mort hasn’t offered any details whether she is taking creative liberties with Nina Simone or if Zoe would portray the “Plain Gold Ring” singer exactly to real-life scale.” Let’s hope it’s the former!
