Taraji P. Henson may be famous for her serious roles, but in a recent chat with The New York Times, the Hidden Figures actress talked about her desire to branch out.
"I would love to be a Marvel superhero", she said.
"You guys just fell for the drama side". From playing a quick-witted, formerly incarcerated music executive Cookie Lyons on Empire to a brilliant NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, Henson's made it pretty clear that she likes to keep us on our feet. In September, she put it on the list of character types she still has to check off of her list.
"I haven't played a superhero yet, I haven't played a psycho character yet", Henson had told Entertainment Weekly. "I have so much to do".
