Angela Bassett Angela Bassett

Acting Ability: 10/10
Physique: 10/10
General Toughness: 10/10

Bassett is ideal for the role of Boba Fett. Her intelligence is demonstrated by her 7 years of undergraduate and graduate study at Yale, and she has a broad emotional range, visible in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Waiting to Exhale and What's Love Got To Do With It?, but she is no stranger to pure strong characters, like those of Strange Days, Malcolm X and Panther. Bassett's physique is also ideal, as she is a former professional bodybuilder and has a height appropriate to the part.

Memo to Hollywood: Prostitutes don't look like Angela Bassett. Not even expensive ones. Knock it off.
