Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is a headline that reads as if it were ripped from a Saturday Night Live skit: Julia Roberts was once the favourite to play the legendary African American 19th-century abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The revelation came from Gregory Allen Howard, the screenwriter and producer of the recently released film Harriet, in a Q&A earlier this month.

"I was told how one studio head said in a meeting: `This script is fantastic. Let's get Julia Roberts to play Harriet Tubman,'" Howard said. "When someone pointed out that Roberts couldn't be Harriet, the executive responded: "It was so long ago. No one is going to know the difference."
