Yeah, that's what I'm afraid of.

As a middle aged gay man, I love her a little too much. She will be an icon someday.

R1 Kathy Bates, in a gender-bending Oscar-bait performance

She'll kill it, alright. She couldn't be more wrong for pint sized spitfire Ronnie Bennett.

R7 She's too fat, I'm ready to take on the role.

A good role for Zendaya would be one of Dusty Springfield's lovers in a biopic.

R9 Sorry, G. They need a winner in that fright wig!

Can you imagine Zendaya exclaiming like Ronnie does at 0:22?

Her man Tom Holland is playing Fred Astaire

Chris Evans is Gene Kelly (barf)

Rooney Mara is Audrey Hepburn

Daniel Radcliffe is Weird Al

Zendaya is Ronnie Spector

Timmy is Bob Dylan

Am I missing any other biopics happening?

Gemma Arterton is Dusty Springfield. (It won't happen.)

Alice Ghostly IS Nancy Pelosi

Amy Poehler IS Phyllis Diller

Sarah Silverman IS Andrew Dice Clay

R6 I feel the same, and I'm MORE than middle-aged. Something about her. She'll be great as Ronnie. Wait though....can she sing? I think someone can play Ronnie and do their own singing if they're adequate. She was a great pop artist, her voice was distinctive but not world-class.

by Anonymousreply 16January 18, 2022 9:12 PM

Ronnie reminds me a little of Liza - a similar fizzy energy, eternally girlish.

Zendaya can play deadpan tomboy. And that's it.

My one regret in life will always be I never got to see her Xmas show because of covid.

Okay I have many regrets but that will be up there alongside the others.

A clip from when she was the nights entertainment at the pre-Oscars Dinner a few years ago

That dress! On her!!! Wow.

Damn. Her voice is underwhelming.

by Anonymousreply 24January 18, 2022 10:23 PM

She has a pretty voice. I never expected her to be a belter.

by Anonymousreply 25January 18, 2022 10:25 PM

Her voice keeps cutting out in that clip. And she's right up close to the microphone. Her vocal production is very poor.

Zendaya is a nontalent whose five minutes will be over soon. JLaw for Zoomers.

She’s pure talent

Oh, please. She wears clothes well.

Bradley Cooper is playing Leonard Bernstein.

by Anonymousreply 32January 18, 2022 11:30 PM

Amy Winehouse could play Ronnie and sing like her if only she were alive. And if Amy were still living, Adelephant wouldn't happen.

There I said it, loud and clear.

Ooh, burn!

by Anonymousreply 34January 18, 2022 11:47 PM

Does she really deserve a biopic? She was part of a group that had 1 hit song.

by Anonymousreply 35January 19, 2022 12:43 AM

Zendaya is very attractive and looks great in clothes but I wouldn't cast her to play Ronnie Spector.

R35 And yet... practically no one younger than 75 could name a member of The Shangri La's if they had a gun to their head.

Betty, is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?

I wouldn't mind seeing a Shangri-las biopic. It would have to be an indie film though, a little gritty.

What is happening with the Dusty Springfield one?

by Anonymousreply 40January 19, 2022 3:51 PM

One of the Ganser twins died of a heroin overdose circa 1970.

I won't argue with that. The semantics, however...

She's too delicate to be continuously getting slammed in the mouth by a straight boyfriend.

by Anonymousreply 45February 3, 2022 3:57 AM

Only on the DL would someone mention Alice Ghostly!

John Krasinki IS Abe Vigoda!

by Anonymousreply 46February 3, 2022 11:57 AM

I know producers prefer to hire popular, established actors for these things but I’d much rather see an unknown who actually resembles RS play her. She had a very unique beauty.

by Anonymousreply 47February 3, 2022 11:59 AM

Zendaya, my current Ka-ween! of the Red Carpet.

I love looking at pix and videos of her, and I don't care whether or not if she has an only an iota of acting or singing talent.

What r6 and r16 said.

by Anonymousreply 48February 3, 2022 12:06 PM

I wouldn't mind if they use the original Ronettes recordings and have her lip-sync. I'm bound to hate a 21st century reproduction of the Wall of Sound more than I'll hate any actress playing Ronnie. Can you imagine trying to replace this opening with the talent of today (to say nothing of Ronnie's crisp, yet vulnerable, vocal)?

I hear the Queen is up to play Helen Mirren in the biopic.

She looks 12.

After reading Ronnie’s book, I immediately thought it would make a great movie. Can’t wait!
