Alicia Keys Attempts the Big Screen

Published: 2007-01-03
It is a popular endeavor for singers to become actors and actors to become singers. Alicia Keys has hopped onto the bandwagon and will be appearing in Joe Carnahan's Smokin' Aces.

Keys' character is an assertive hit woman. The character is such a far stretch from how Alicia is viewed as a person. When most singers crossover into the film world, they take on roles where they can be comfortable. I.e.: roles where they can sing. Alicia wanted to stay away from films like that in hopes that the audience would be able to believe her performance. About her choice on Smokin' Aces being her introduction to the film audience Alicia told MTV, "I wanted to do something unexpected, something that took me out of my element."

Alicia had a tough group of actors to keep up to on her debut film. In Smokin' Aces she appears alongside, Ryan Reynolds, Ben Affleck, Andy Garcia, Jeremy Piven, and Ray Liotta.
