Beyonce Confirmed To Play Etta James?

January 28, 2008 / Posted by:

There must be some sort of mix-up. It’s been reported that Beyonce will play Etta James in a film called “Cadillac Records.” Phew, at least it’s not a biopic. Cedric the Entertainer spilled the news and said the film explores the Chicago blues label, Chess Records. The label and its founder, Leonard Chess, discovered Muddy Waters and Etta. Adrien Brody will play Leonard Chess. The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Tammy Blanchard.

Fuck, I hope they put Beyonce in that blonde wig. I hope they put her in the wig and don’t give her any lines. She is a scene killer! When I first heard this, I thought they were doing a spoof! I would rather see Eddie Murphy do drag for the ten-millionth time to play Etta than see Beyonce no-acting ass try and play Etta.
