Video After The Jump

R-E-S-P-E-C-T, were going to find out what it means to a handful of actors Aretha Franklin wants to play roles in a movie about her life.

The Queen Of Soul wants Halle Berry to portray a young Aretha in the film based on her autobiography, "Aretha: From These Roots."

The 68-year old singer also wants Denzel Washington to portray her father, C.L. Franklin and Terrance Howard to play the role of a young Smokey Robinson.

 

Terrance Howard

A press release sent out by Franklin says says the actors in question are, "enthusiastic about the project and have agreed to take on these roles, subject to further negotiation." adding that Denzel, "was very interested in the role," and Franklin "also had a very positive response from her in-person conversations with Terrence Howard and others."

 

Denzel Washington

Franklin's career has spanned nearly 45 years. In that time she has earned 20 Grammys. In 1987 she became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Franklin had a recent health scare recently, but she told Wendy Williams yesterday by phone that her health was "superb."

She also told Wendy that she has her eye on singer R. Kelly. Aretha loves Kels new song "When A Woman Loves" so much that she says if he isn't careful she might become a "cougar"

 

R. Kelly


Gotta love hearing Aretha Franklin joking and sounding like she's in such good spirits.
