Zoe Saldana is portraying late jazz musician Nina Simone in the upcoming biopic, Nina, and here's the first pic of the actress all done up!
Well, we shouldn't say "all" done up because the source doesn't know if there is still more make-up to be added. Either way, Zoe is pretty much unrecognizable!
The movie will tell the story of the pianist's rise to stardom while profiling her relationship with manager Clifton Henderson.
Mike Epps also joined the cast last week to play Richard Pryor, who frequently opened for the musician when they were both starting out in the early 60s.
Check out pics of the woman that Mz. Saldana is bringing back to life on the big screen (below) to see the resemblance!
