This movie is going to bomb faster than the Hinderberg went down.:fiery: I dont' know what the hell the producers of this film were thinking when they decided to cast her. Don't they know she can't act?

BTW, I hear her co-stars may be two of the following:

Mary J. Blige
Faith Evans
Christian Millian
Rosario Dawson
Fantasia (American Idol 3 winner)
Brandy
Ailcia Keys
Kelly Rowland
Mya

and others I can't remember at the moment.

It is loosely based on the group Diana Ross and the Supremes (formerly the Supremes). Dreamgirls was a play on Broadway in the early 1980's which starred Sheryl Lee Ralph and R&B singer Jennifer Holliday, who won a Tony and a Grammy for her rendition of "And I Am Telling You, I'm Not Going".

Guess which part Beyonce is playing?

Hehe I loved The Surpremes.:) Stone love, that's one of my all-time favourite songs. Sheryl Lee Ralph (is this the same one who played Laura Palmer?).

Beyonce is playing.....the Diana Ross character?

Sheryl Lee is the one who played Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks.

Yes, Beyonce is palying the Diana Ross character.

Sheryl Lee very sexy.:)

I haven't seen Beyonce act yet. So I cannot comment. Seen - Kelly in Freddy vs Jason (I was more shocked at Kelly swearing than I was by the two psycho killers. And I always thought she was such a nice girl too) ;):)

I saw Mya in a video (now what the songs called I can't recall right now) but her dancing knocked me out, I thought she was sensational.:)

Well I have and she stinks.:fiery:

I'd be shocked if Kelly (her half sister) was in the movie. Their father, er, manager doesn't ususally let them do the same project.

Yes.

Kelly was the product of an extramarital affair Beyonce's father had years ago. This was a blind item in NY papers a few years ago.

Neither did I until I read it.

Also, a tip off that Kelly is realated to Beyonce; they can't get their stories straight whether Kelly is Beyonce's friend or cousin.

She can sing most definitely, she shines way more in Gospel though. DC also went to a new level vocally when she came into the group. She's no Beyonce of course, but I'd personally take her over Kelly. She definitely sounds better live than Kelly.

Well, I guess we can agree to disagree, because I don't like her singing at all.

Why do you need someone to sing anyways..if its about the Supremes then its gonna be lip-synced(sp)..

Beyonce would be perfect to play Diana Ross..

Like she (Diana) said the Supremes would stay together forever, Beyonce said the same about DC... and we all know what's about to happen... And like Diana in Supremes, Beyonce is the leader of DC.. :o

I can't believe everyone did not know about Kelly being Beyonces half sister. Old news.;)

Beyonce would be the pefect pick for this role considering people think DC3 is all about her just like they thought about Diana and the supremes.

Also, the executives are not going to cast an unknown in the lead role. They need stars so the movie can be profitable. Beyonce is perfect to headline a movie like this one. Hopefully she does a better job in this role than her previous efforts.;)

I meant the Hindenberg and it blew up in New Jersey in the late 1930's or early 1940's.

After their album "The Writing's On The Wall" had the huge crossover sucess, Beyonce and her father did everything they could to break up the original group and they suceeded by getting rid of Latavia and Latoya, who ended up suing them and getting a settlement.

I didn't hear about Kelly and Beyonce being half sisters until I read a blind item in the NY Post about it (it was also posted here a couple of years ago). There won't be a scandal because Beyonce is a cash cow for Sony/BMG Records and the record company will do all it can to make sure this will never become a scandal.
