So, it shouldn’t be surprising that Winfrey would want to push herself even more when it comes to her acting career. It’s recently been released by ET that Winfrey has landed the role of Richard Pryor’s grandmother, Marie Carter. Carter wasn’t an ordinary grandmother; she was a brothel owner who raised Richard after his mother abandoned him when he was ten  [ Read More ]
