Run, Forrest, Run!!!!

JK, wrong person wrong context. Couldn't help it! LOLz!!

The Forest with only one R, Forest Whitaker, may have a new part soon…and a pretty revolutionary part at that!!

It’s been rumored that Whitaker may star as Martin Luther King Jr. in a movie that’s long been in the works: Memphis. This movie would be filmed as a faux documentary and would document the last days of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, during which he is:

"depressed about the state of both his marriage and that of war-ravaged and socially-divided America, as well the fear of being marginalized by a new generation of younger black leaders."

WOW. Heavy!!!

But we luurrvvee the idea of Forest Whitaker in the part; he can use his giraffe fight narration skillz to change the hearts and minds of millions!! And it sounds like he’s definitely interested!

Can’t wait until this rumor is confirmed!!

    Oh, for f**ks sake, MLK was 39yrs old when he died. Whitaker's over 50.

    Brilliant actor, but WAY too old to play MLK, Jr.

    Forest Whitaker can't talk. Wasn't Martin Luther King famous for inspiring speeches? Forest Whitaker mumbles when he talks. It should be Jeffrey Wright.

    He is a brilliant actor but wrong for MLK.
