Sandra Bullock was thinking about taking the role of the child-hating, coal-hearted, drunk orphan mistress Miss Hannigan in the reboot of Annie starring Quvenzhané Wallis and Jamie Foxx, but I guess she ultimately decided that she doesn’t hate the ears of the world enough to expose them to her singing voice again. Cameron Diaz on the other hand is not above torturing our ear holes with her auto-tuned yodel……
Deadline says that Annie’s director Will Gluck has cast Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan. I’m going to say the same thing I said when I hooked up with a 5’2″ skinny little dude and he pulled out the original blueprint for The Hammaconda, “I DID NOT SEE THAT COMING!” This is not what I expected. Sure, Cameron Diaz can easily play a messy drunk (since her ass is a messy drunk in real life), but can she sing at all? Cameron’s singing was dubbed in The Mask and I’m not counting the drunk cat wail she let out in My Best Friend’s Wedding. Miss Hannigan doesn’t need to have the gorgeous singing voice of an Asian nightingale who’s really into interior design, but I don’t know if Cameron can carry a tune, let alone drag a tune by the hair across a dirt path.
With all that being
said bitched and moaned, Cameron does sort of kind of make sense as Miss Hannigan. I mean, her SANS FARDS face has been known to scare little children into old age, so she could surprise us all!
And poor Paula Deen lost out on another job. You know she was campaigning hard for this role, because getting paid to yell at little black girls is her dream!
Here’s Cameron filming that movie The Other Woman in NYC two days ago.
