Who Would Play You?

The list below is my top five favorite biographies of all time because these actors BODIED these roles. I mean, the acting was magnificent in every aspect. If somebody were to make a movie of my life I would want someone to act the same way these actors in these movies below did. All the actors in these films deserve ALL the awards for their acting!! Enjoy! * I highly recommend all of these movies*


 

 

Notorious

Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Christopher Wallace (Jamal Woolard) parlays his gift for storytelling into a career as a rap artist. Eventually dubbing himself Biggie Smalls, then later, the Notorious B.I.G., Wallace’s tales about violent street life take him to the top of the rap charts. The subject he so often raps about catches up with him in March of 1997, when he is shot to death after leaving a party.

My Two-Cents: he’s literally perfect for this role.

*Rated R

*Very explicit

 


 

Ray

Legendary soul musician Ray Charles is portrayed by Jamie Foxx in this Oscar-winning biopic. Young Ray watches his 7-year-old brother drown at age seven. When he loses his sight at the age of 9, his hardworking mother (Sharon Warren) urges him not to feel sorry for himself. He rises through the ranks of the Seattle jazz scene, struggling with drug addiction and infidelity while on the road. Supported by his wife (Kerry Washington), Ray Charles redefines soul music and inspires a generation.

 

once you watch the movie you will understand this gif, trust me you wanna know what’s happening in this gif.

My Two-Cents: even if you don’t know who Ray is, this is a biography everybody should see!

 


 

 

The Pursuit of Happyness

Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give in to despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.

 

 

My Two-Cents: I had no idea Will Smith was playing somebody in real life until I did my research! This makes the movie so much more emotional and real.

 

 

 


 

The Wolf of Wall Street

In 1987, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) takes an entry-level job at a Wall Street brokerage firm. By the early 1990s, while still in his 20s, Belfort founds his own firm, Stratton Oakmont. Together with his trusted lieutenant (Jonah Hill) and a merry band of brokers, Belfort makes a huge fortune by defrauding wealthy investors out of millions. However, while Belfort and his cronies partake in a hedonistic brew of sex, drugs, and thrills, the SEC and the FBI close in on his empire of excess.

 

 

My Two-Cents: yooooo! This movie is crazy!! But, funny I had no idea that Leo was playing the role of a real-life person because who lives like that? 😂

 

 

 


 

What’s Love Got to Do With It

Based on the life of the legendary soul singer, Tina Turner (Angela Bassett) — born Anna Mae Bullock — discovers her love of singing in her Tennessee church choir. She moves to St. Louis to pursue a career, and there she meets the charismatic Ike Turner (Laurence Fishburne), who rechristens her Tina and offers to help her succeed. As a musical team, Ike and Tina take the charts by storm. But as his physical abuse worsens, Tina has to make the tough decision to leave Ike and set out on her own.
My Two-Cents: LISTENNNN, this is my favorite biography of all time! When I was younger I actually thought Angela Basset was Tina Turner until I got older. That’s how well she played the role.

* WARNING: Lots of domestic violence.
