Enter Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson, who's just signed up to play Cassandra Turner -- a fictional variation of Catana Starks, who became the first female coach of a men's golf team in NCAA Division I (no, really) -- in the indie From the Rough. She's a black woman, so not only will her working with men probably factor in as a primary source of drama, but her race might make her inevitable slow-motion triumph all the more righteous.

But hey, they haven't even started shooting yet, so maybe I should just ease off. Besides, nobody's looking to break the mold here. This stuff's like comfort food to a certain audience, a crowd that wants to be constantly reminded that Good Guys win, Bad Guys lose, and it's already significant simply because it's a True Story.

(Not significant enough for a documentary, though, because that would be Boring.)
