The usually poised Oprah has signed on to portray, Marie Carter, violent grandmother who happens to run a brothel in an upcoming biopic.
YUP! Marie actually lived and she gained notoriety for abusing her grandson and raising him in a brothel in Peoria, Illinois.
Rumor has it that Oprah fought for the role once she got a glimpse at the script and we can see why! It will be a way for her to show off her ever-growing acting skillz in an EPIC way.
Oprah will be directed yet again by Lee Daniels and play make-believe alongside Mike Epps and Richard Pryor.
We still miss her days as our favorite talk show host, but this definitely isn't a bad way for her to spend her days! HA!
Who knows??! Maybe this new role will get O that Oscar she's already been up for before!
