Zoe Saldana was seen this past Thursday on the set of Nina in Los Angeles. The Avatar actress, sporting dark make-up and an afro wig, received backlash after she was cast to play the titular role. The biopic tells the story of the late jazz musician and classical pianist Nina Simone, including her rise to fame and relationship with her manager, Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo). The cast also includes Mike Epps (Sparkle).
