If you were to cast someone to play Michelle Obama in a movie, who do you think could take on the part?

Well, it looks like we’re getting that answer, as Tika Sumpter snagged the role as the country’s First Lady in a new upcoming movie called Southside With You, based on the Obamas’ first date.

According to Deadline, the actress will play a younger Michelle Robinson (her maiden name), during the time she and Barack worked at a Chicago law firm together.

The movie will cover how they met, and how the now-president convinced Michelle to go on a date with him after a lot of persuasion.

All good things must come to an end.

That’s the case for popular show Two & A Half Men, which is set to end its 12-season run on February 19th, 2015 at 9 p.m.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the show has decided to end its long run after 262 episodes and 47 Emmy Award nominations.

Will you guys be sad to see it go?

This weekend was reportedly the slowest box office weekend of the year, but that didn’t stop Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 from dominating once again.

According to Cinema Blend, the third installment of the extremely popular series came in first place in the box office, garnering $21 million more to add to its total $257 million total gross.

The film is currently competing to catch up to Guardians of the Galaxy, which earned $334 million in 2014 in total.

Gabrielle Union has starred in tons of movies, but her breakout role that everyone probably remembers was the arch-enemy of Kirsten Dunst in the original Bring It On.

The Being Mary Jane actress recently attended the NYC premiere of her new movie Top Fiveand while walking the red carpet, she got a chance to talk to Us Weekly about her original role in the cheerleading movie, and even revealed that she had a replica of her outfit made.

She told the site:

“I had a replica made. Just for fun…or not.”

She continued:

“We would always all be together — Toros, Clovers,” Union recalled to Us on the red carpet. “We had a lot of fun and we continue to have a lot of fun together whenever we’re all together. It’s a movie and a gift and a friendship that keeps on giving.”

She even revealed whether she remembers the choreography or not:

“I don’t remember the choreography,” she told Time magazine earlier this week. “What’s crazy is every Halloween there are groups of people who go as the Compton Clovers and the Toros, and they do the routine when they get to the party or on the streets. I’ve run into these groups of people dressed as [my character] Isis,” she said. “…They will flank me, and magically it comes back. It’s like muscle memory. I go right back to San Diego, filming the movie, and I remember!”

We’re going to need a reunion soon, Mrs. Wade.
