Audra McDonald To Play A Young Aretha?

Audra McDonald Aretha Franklin

Whomp, whomp.

Looks like the Queen of Soul might not have gotten her way this time!

Remember earlier this year when Aretha Franklin was just PINING to have Halle Berry portray her in an upcoming biopic???

Mz. Franklin was SO adamant about Halle playing her — insistent, really — even though Halle herself said she couldn’t even carry a tune! LOLz!

Well, now it sounds like Tony award-winner Audra McDonald has reportedly signed on to play young Aretha…not Halle!!

Seems to be a more appropriate choice, seeing as

Private Practice Is Losing A Doctor

Filed under: TV News

It shouldn't be too big of a surprise, though. Hasn't she been missing most of the season anyway?

Original Private Practice cast member Audra McDonald is poised to leave the show at the end of this season. Audra was living the bicoastal life, filming in LA and living in NYC, and has decided she wants to spend more time with her family , particularly her 10-year-old daughter.

Understandable. They're only that young once.

However, Audra's exit doesn't mean it will be the last we will see of her character as guest appearances are expected for the coming season.

With Audra clocking out that means there's room for a new one to step in. Anyone got any suggestions? Perhaps someone from its sister show, Grey's Anatomy?
