Hollywood actor Halle Berry will play a college professor in a new TV series, Higher Learning. The 44-year-old star has been linked to a show written by veteran TV movie actor Lee Rose and produced by Dreamworks TV, which is pitching to major US networks HBO and Showtime, reported Femalefirst online. However, the brunette expressed doubts about her ability to play the role because of her lack of vocal talent. “I can’t sing! If I could carry a tune, I’d consider it.

Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice,” said Berry. The Academy Award-winning actor, who was recently cast in the movie adaptation of Cloud Atlas and is also starring in romantic comedy New Year’s Eve, would be making her return to regular TV work, after previously starring in 21 episodes of long-running drama, Knots Landing, in 1991. It was also revealed earlier this year that she was personally chosen by Aretha Franklin to star in a biopic about the legendary singer’s life.
