Whoopi Goldberg Tapped to Star in Lifetime's A Day Late and a Dollar Short




Whoopi Goldberg is putting her thespian cap back on. The Wrap is reporting The View co-host is set to star in Lifetime’s adaptation of Terry McMillan’s A Day Late and a Dollar Short. 

Goldberg will play Viola Price, who discovers if she has another asthma attack, it will kill her. Armed with this information, Viola makes the decision to mend her estranged family. 

The movie re-teams Goldberg and McMillan, as the Academy Award-winning actress starred with Angela Bassett in the big screen version of McMillan's How Stella Got Her Groove Back.

I'm looking forward to this. I enjoyed the book and I enjoy McMillan's work on film. Whoopi knows how to humanize her characters with uncharacteristic warmth.
