Cinema in Noir: Can Zoe Saldana Pull Off a Nina Simone Biopic?

And that is the real question. Or so we've asked you on today's Cinema In Noir.

R&B singer Mary J. Blige, who was previously cast as Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic, has been mysteriously replaced by Colombiana actress Zoe Saldana for the role of the late jazz singer. We share our thoughts on the casting, which definitely set off a firestorm of comments, both good and bad, on the blogosphere.

We also go over our favorite films from director Tony Scott, who passed away last weekend in California. What are some of your favorite films from the late filmmaker, and what will you remember most about him?

Lastly, we talk up the latest in film news (including which role Blige will step into next), and, in light of the hoopla over the Kristen Stewart cheating scandal, the double standard of celebrity infidelity between men and women in Hollywood?

Check it all out on the recap below:
