I have to admit I was surprised when they didn't cast a little curly haired redhead as Annie. 

I mean little orphan Annie always meant curly red head in my book.

I am excited though, because I think Jamie Fox is a strong actor and can help push this to a strong movie.  I doubt though that it will be as good as the original.

'Annie' is set to hit theaters this Christmas.
