Also, what do you all think of the proposed casting? I think she's a decent enough choice (though probably too beautiful)
Wasn't Cleopatra considered a great beauty - one of the reasons why both Caesar and Marc Antony fell for her? So why would Angelina Jolie be considered too beautiful
to play her?
True, we've no lifelike portraits of her to see what she really looked like, only a bust and statues made in the traditional Egyptian way which makes everybody, male or female, pharoah or slave, look pretty much the same as everybody else, but there must have been some reason for the tales of her great beauty to have arisen.
