Here’s a biopic we could get behind: Halle Berry is really, really interested in playing the civil rights activist Angela Davis onscreen. Halle’s been saying in interviews for years that she wants to portray the professor and writer (and a professor a UC Santa Cruz, where Amelia went to school) on film. “Her story is so fascinating. I would love to bring it to the screen,” Halle Berry told InStyle recently. “I would pick her brain to have a better understanding of her affiliation with the Black Panthers and that period from the 1960s.” Hollywood has made more than a few films about the ’60s panic over communism (Davis actually lost her job over her ties to the Communist Party), so why not the Black Panthers, too? Make it happen, Hollywood! [IndieWire]

Halle Berry And Gavin Rossdale Coming To A TV Near You

With big stars like Zooey Deschanel signing on for television shows, it seems like the small screen is the place to be. Today, I read about two other unexpected faces who will be appearing on the boob tube soon. First, Oscar winner Halle Berry is attached to a new TV series called “Higher Learning” that is being pitched to both Showtime and HBO and is expected to be picked up by one of them. Not too much is known about the show beyond Halle’s involvement and the fact that she would play a college professor in it. Also fascinating—Gavin Rossdale, aka the frontman of Bush and husband of Gwen Stefani, has signed on for a role on USA’s “Burn Notice.” Keep reading »

Halle Berry Says Daughter Nahla Is Black

“I feel like she’s black. I’m black and I’m her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide – how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That’s how I identified myself. But I feel like she’s black.”

Halle Berry on daughter Nahla’s race in Ebony magazine. For those of you who are not familiar, the one-drop theory is that people with partial amounts of African ancestry are considered black. The origins of the term are interesting. The one-drop rule was passed in many states in the 1920s, saying that people with one-eighth to one-quarter of African ancestry (depending on state law) could be considered legally white. This quote from Halle is particularly timely, as sources told TMZ that her ex and baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry — with whom she’s engaged in a bitter custody fight — “would go nuts” when she referred to Nahla as black.
