You may recall a couple of weeks ago the S & A post about Jennifer Hudson's lack of a film career. Well, maybe she read it because, lately she's been working hard to prove us wrong.

Not only will she have a role as Sister Rosemary in the Farrelly brother's upcoming Three Stooges movie, it's now been revealed that she will also have a supporting role in the indie drama Mister and Pete, to be directed by George Tillman Jr. (Faster) and co-produced by Alicia Keys who of course co-starred with Hudson in The Secret Life of Bees.

In the film, Hudson will play a NY drug addict mother whose arrest forces her son and his best friend to fend for themselves. According to Hudson, her character will be "very surprising" , and though "it's a small role it has ranges and layers to it."

The production is scheduled to start shooting in August.

    "S&A please believe Jennifer Hudson have not given you a second thought."

    @ Norma

    Here I go again trying to explain somebody that I was just trying to be amusing. I was just joking when I said that she had been reading our blog. Are you really that bloody naive? Evidently since you posted your comment TWICE!

    Me thinks the weightloss has A LOT to do with J Hud being offered more roles. Sorry Norma, I know you'd like us to think she does films "when she feels the time is right", but that's not how Hollywood works for people they don't consider the ideal size. I'm not a big fan of her acting but I hope she can prove me wrong with these upcoming projects. More power to you J-Hud!

    I know she has an Oscar and all that but I just don't think Jennifer is a good actress. She's getting better & nearing being a decent actor but I don't get it. Great singer though.
