Oprah Wanted The Role Of Mrs. Miller In Doubt

Let me tell you, Oprah wanted to play the role of Mrs. Miller in the critically acclaimed film Doubt so bad, she lobbied for the role directly to director John Patrick Shanley. She tried to audition, but as the story went, Shanley flat turned her down because he didn’t think she would be the appropriate choice. Of course, Viola Davis went on to have this role, and picked up her first Academy Award nomination for her work.
