Paula Patton is ready to try her hand at television. She is in negotiations to play the new ADA on Law and Order :Special Victims Unit. This would make the umpteenth time they have recast the part.
Nonetheless I would like to see Paula stick to movies. She was terrific as the teacher who befriends Precious in the movie of the same name and as the gold digger Morgan in Just Wright (which inexplicably flopped at the box office).
Other projects on tap: This Wednesday, where Paula will play a "pimpstress" which sounds promising, and the romantic comedy Jumping the Broom.
