Despite the fact that no one really seems to want see actress Zoe Saldana play Nina Simone in an upcoming film biopic (or so says the New York Times), the picture is not only going forward, it begins shooting this week. And some iconic names are joining the cast. Or at least, cast members that will play iconic African-American figures. Comedian Mike Epps ("Next Friday," "The Hangover") has signed up to play Richard Pryor in the biopic simply known as "Nina."
