    Toni loves Love!

    Financially embattled Toni Braxton, who has had bankruptcy issues and who said she was ditching singing for a film career, has been cast as soul singer Darlene Love in a new TV film, dubbed My Name is Love: The Darlene Love Story.

    The film is the first scripted TV movie for Oprah Winfrey's OWN and will be executive produced by Winfrey and filmmaker Morgan Neville.

    It makes sense for Braxton to play a singer, since she can act what she knows. We look forward to seeing her in the role.

    Does this sound like a film that you will watch?
