#SPOTTED: VIOLA DAVIS IN TORONTO FILMING “SUICIDE SQUAD”
Being the most pivotal Character in DC Comics‘ upcoming mega-watt star-powered SUICIDE SQUAD, it was crucial that casting for the Character of Amanda Waller was spot-on. We hear that Oscar Winners Oprah Winfrey and Octavia Spencer were up for the part, if you want an idea how high the bar was raised. They have however completely nailed it with double Oscar Nominee, TONY Winner and SAG Award-winning Actress Viola Davis, Star of acclaimed Films like Doubt and The Help. She currently can be seen on daring and popular TV Series How To Get Away with Murder in the Lead Role of Annalise Keating.
Seen mostly as an Anti-Hero, Waller sometimes is seen as an Ally to the Superheroes. In the upcoming Film, we see her gathering imprisoned Supervillains whom for exchange for clemency, agree to sign-on to dangerous Black Ops missions.
We absolutely love Davis and her unconventional Career choices – we love her just as much strong as when she is vulnerable, and we appreciate that she generally is low-key, spending much time with her young Daughter while in the City when not at work. It would appear she is dividing her time between here and New York, multitasking Projects.
By chance, we ran into her today and despite being on the phone, she curtailed the call to do a Selfie, which we know is rare. She looked so beautiful even without makeup!! We’ll never forget this and we are on Cloud Nine. Queen Viola!!
Warner Bros. release SUICIDE SQUAD August 5, 2016 and filming wraps late August.
