CADILLAC RECORDS First Look of Mos Def, Beyonce, Adrien Brody, and more…
MTV just released a first look at CADILLAC RECORDS which includes Emmanuelle Chriqui as Revetta Chess, Beyoncé Knowles as Etta James, Jeffrey Wright as Muddy Waters, Adrien Brody as Leonard Chess, Gabrielle Union as Geneva Wade, Mos Def as Chuck Berry, Cedric the Entertainer as Willie Dixon.
I am really curious to actually see a trailer for the movie because it seems to be very musically driven. But I do have to admit that I really disappointed that they decided to put Beyonce as Etta James in the movie. How many bad performances on her part do we need to be subjected to until they realize she should just stick to singing.
I am however looking forward to seeing Mos Def, he is just brilliant.
Cadillac Records is scheduled to be released on December 5, 2008.
