Not to be outdone by Akeys playing Billie Holliday, and in her quest to get an oscar nod like Diana Ross, that girl is said to be taking on the role of Etta James in a movie called "Cadilac Records" with Cedric The Entertainer.
The story is about Leonard Chess, the legendary founder of the South Side Chicago blues label Chess Records. The period piece follows the rise and fall of Chess Records, which launched the careers of such R&B greats as Muddy Waters, Etta James and Chuck Berry. Cedric the Entertainer will play Willie Dixon, who wrote most of the hits records and was part of the famous company. One of his most famous songs was "Hoochie Coochie Man". ............................................
Forget that she sounds nothing like Etta, or that she can't act or speak....the girl playing/acting as anybody is never a good idea. Plus, Christina Aguillera just cried 1000x over that this is being done to her idol Etta.
