Voluptuous chocolate siren Beyonce Knowles is adding yet another category to her already impressive list of hyphenates - that of executive producer. She's signed on to executive produce and star in the Darnell Martin directed period drama CADILLAC RECORDS. The film centers on the 1950s, Chicago-based record company Chess Records and the naturally troubled lives of its founder, Leonard Chess (played by Adrien Brody), and the prominent artists' the company spawned, including Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf and Chuck Berry. Knowles will play Etta James with Jeffrey Wright playing Waters, Cedric the Entertainer playing Willie Dixon and Columbus Short playing Little Walter. Knowles joins fellow hotties Emmanuelle Chriqui and Tammy Blanchard in the film. She can next be seen looking dangerously hot pretty much wherever she goes.
|Extra Tidbit:||Beyonce is the first female artist to reach number one on both singles and albums chart simultaneously in the United States and the United Kingdom.|
