    Ruby Dee (born October 27, 1924) is an American actress, poet, playwright, screenwriter, journalist, and activist.

    Dee made several appearances on Broadway before receiving national recognition for her role in the 1950 film The Jackie Robinson Story. Her career in acting has crossed all major forms of media over a span of eight decades, including the films A Raisin in the Sun, in which she recreated her stage role as a suffering housewife in the projects, and Edge of the City. She played both roles opposite Sidney Poitier. During the 1960s, Dee appeared in such politically charged films as Gone Are the Days and The Incident, which is recognized as helping pave the way for young African-American actors and filmmakers.

    Casting:

    Reginald Hudlin knew immediately that he wanted Halle Berry for the role of Angela after she came in and did the reading, and was nervous that Eddie Murphy wouldn't like her. Berry was relatively new on the film scene at the time of her casting in the film, only having appeared in a couple of films prior to getting the role. However, after Berry did her screen test, Murphy told Hudlin "well, that's it. There's no need to see the other two actresses because she's the part." Executives at Paramount Pictures were nervous about Robin Givens being cast in such a major role in the film, as she was disliked by many in the general public at the time because of her past with Mike Tyson.

    Monster Ball

    Does that mean Halle is a very bad person or a very good actress? Should we hate Halle for her acting role in the “Monster Ball” film or that is her duty/job as an actress?
