    Versatile, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry has been bandied about as the actress who will play Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic of the legendary soul singer. However, Berry herself said that she is not right for the part. I guess she has too much R.E.S.P.E.C.T. for 'Reth. Sorry, I had to. "I can't sing!" Berry told E! "If I could carry a tune, I'd consider it."

    Who do you think should play Franklin?
