  1. I am a big fan of Alicia Keys, however I don’t think that she is the right person to portray Lena Horne. She is a very talented individual, however I always thought of Salli Richardson(Posse)(Family Law (Eureka) to name just a few would be a better choice for the role. First of all, she resembles Lena Horne more so than Alicia Keys,secondly, she is an actress,they can always dubb her voice like so many actors/actresses who portray singers. I think she made the wrong call as far as casting goes on this one, but it’s her money,her project, and that’s why she’s rich and not me, I just wanted to voice my opinion.
