Most of you have NO IDEA who Lee Daniels is. That’s OK I’m about to tell and show you and I guarantee you will be surprised and amazed.. I have followed him since the 2001 Oscar win by Halle Berry for “Monster Ball”. He at LEAST parallels Spike Lee in talent, treatment of product and production and raw guts — my opinion.
“The producer and director of ‘Precious,’ ‘The Butler’ and TV’s ‘Empire,’ Lee Daniels, opens up about Hollywood, race, addiction and the time Donald Trump met with him about a film job in this candid discussion for Mavericks with Ari Melber, a series of interviews with artists, musicians and cultural icons. In an emotional moment, Daniels also reveals new details about the night Halle Berry won her ground-breaking Oscar for ‘Monster’s Ball.’ Warning, this video contains some offensive language (msnbc.com/mavericks).
