Since the announcement of a TLC biopic was made earlier this year, there has been a plethora of mixed emotions, especially following the announcement of who was chosen to portray the three crazy, sexy and cool artists. With Drew Sidora starring as T-Boz, Lil Mama as Left Eye and Keke Palmer as Chilli, there were a lot of people who negatively expressed opinions about how the three look nothing like the group members and whether or not they could pull off the task of embodying the “swagger” that TLC possessed.
A couple of months ago, Keke Palmer took to her Twitter to give the naysayers a little something to reflect on.
“People need to realize that movies aren’t casted by people looking like who they’re playing. They’re casted by who can do the role. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather see a movie that is well acted, then a movie with a bunch of look a like’s…“
Vh1 released a little teaser yesterday and I must say I am anxious to watch the movie when it airs in October. Actually, I’ve been anxious since I first heard of it. In my opinion, Keke Palmer is a really talented actress, so I have hope that she’s going to do well. I hope the rest of the girls do well, too, and prove everyone who doubted them wrong.
Be sure to watch CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story when it airs on Vh1 October 21.
