Mo’Nique is playing Ma Rainey in the Queen Latifah produced and Dee Rees directed biopic Bessie. (Queen plays the legendary out singer Bessie Smith.) Also new to the cast: Tika Sumpter, as Lucille, a chorus girl in Bessie’s troupe. Bessie always enjoyed some chorus girls! And this one is gorgeous.

E! has an interview with Orphan Black EPs on how they created the newest clone.

“We had just wrapped season one, and we went out to dinner with [Tatiana] and we were going to pitch this idea to her. And she had already come up with the idea, her and her hair team.
