I'm not going to lie. For a very long time, I pronounced the word "biopic" wrong. I think I knew that I didn't quite have it right because I avoided saying it. When I did say it, it rhymed with "myopic." Luckily, I learned to say it correctly about the same time the genre started winning people Oscars. I'm proud to say (correctly!) that Forest Whitaker is about to put in his bid for a hopeful nomination in the now classic Oscar Bait: Musician Biopic Edition. He's signed on to star in and direct What a Wonderful World, a Louis Armstrong biopic, for Legende, the French production house behind La Vie en Rose.
