Alicia Keys

  1. Rosario Dawson, 25th Hour, 2001.     Director Spike Lee thought of Alicia for Naturelle Riviera, the lover of Edward Norton – examining his life during  the day before  before going to jail for eight years
  2. Zoe Saldana, The Terminal, 2004.     Although chased by Spielberg and Halle Berry for films, the singer started out doing “something unexpected, totally out of my comfort zone” – Smokin’ Aces – “as slick and toxic as the oil spill from the tanker, Exxon Valdez,” commented veteran UK critic Philip French. 
  3. Aniki Noni Rose, The Princess and the Frog, 2009.     Beyoncé Knowles refused to audition leaving Keys, Tyra Banks, Jennifer Hudson, in the mix for voicing Tiana, Disney’s first Afro-American princess. The winner was the somewhat older Rose.
