Viola Davis


Category: The Stars

After her second Emmy nomination (and a 2015 win) for How to Get Away With Murder, Davis, 51, now is in the Oscar conversation with the Denzel Washington-helmed Fences. The two-time Oscar nominee’s JuVee Productions in 2016 inked a new two-year overall deal with ABC Studios and sold original single-camera comedy Zippcoders, which follows a group of African-American teen friends who form a rock band in the 1960s. She is also developing and will executive produce the adaptation of Ann Weisgarber’s The Personal History of Rachel DuPree, which she will star in with up-and-comer Quvenzhane Wallis. This summer, Davis starred opposite Will Smith and Margot Robbie in DC/Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad, and it was recently announced that she will topline the Steve McQueen heist thriller Widows.
