When news broke of actress Zoe Saldana playing legendary singer Nina Simone, the internet went partial crazy. Mostly because a lot of people felt that Zoe was the complete opposite physically of what Nina Simone looked like. Even Jill Scott spoke about it to online mag Hello Beautiful, saying Zoe should wear a ‘prosthetic nose and darker makeup’ to portray Nina. Well The Daily Mail managed to snag a couple of pictures of Zoe made up, in character.

So what’s the verdict? A hit or a hit-and-a-miss?
