From The Cocoa Lounge
For your Valentine's Day viewing pleasure:
Salli Richardson and Pam Grier
We've come to know these ladies as Pocahontas and Foxy Brown, respectively, but based on how similar they look in these photos, we're calling Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Pam Grier Two of a Kind.
Judy Reyes and Debbie Allen
Is it really A Different World? Looking at these two you wouldn't think so. Judy Reyes and Debbie Allen appear to be from the exact same place.
Jada Pinkett and Zoe Saldana
After years of speculation, we decided to put Jada Pinkett-Smith and Zoe Saldana side-by-side to see what would happen. The verdict: If these two decided to put their heads together, they could give the Olsen Twins a run for their money.
Mekhi Phifer and The Late James Brown
Here's one we really didn't see coming: Mekhi Phifer and James Brown! With the untimely passing of the Godfather of Soul, Hollywood is surely clamoring for rights to a biopic. Note to agents and execs: Mekhi Phifer should be first in the audition line. There's something about that smile and those eyes that sings I've Got Soul and I'm Superbad.
Like Jamie Foxx before him with Ray, The James Brown Story could potentially earn Mekhi his first Academy Award. And we wouldn't mind if he thanked The Cocoa Lounge after his Mama and agent.
...But maybe it's time for prescription glasses....
