    R&B star BEYONCE KNOWLES is set to play famed blues singer ETTA JAMES in new movie CADILLAC RECORDS.

    The Dreamgirls actress will join Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright and Cedric the Entertainer in the 1950s-set film, reports AOL.com.

    Actor Matt Dillon has been replaced by Oscar-winning Brody in the role of Leonard Chess, the founder of legendary blues label Chess Records, after scheduling conflicts forced him to pull out of the project.

    Filming is due to take place later this year (08) in New Jersey and Mississippi.

    So we're going to have to suffer through another bout of her 'acting'. Ho hum, I won't be bothering.

    Beyonce can NOT play Etta. Etta is a goddess. Beyonce is...well...Beyonce. This role would require her to (a) not always look pretty, (b) sing the blues, and (c) ACT. Beyonce is (a) scared to not look pretty, (b) not that great of a singer, and (c)cannot act her way out of a paper bag. We've got trouble my friends, right here in Gossip City, that starts with T which rhymes with B and that stands for Beyonce.

    Ring the alarm!!! Beyoncitis playing Etta James is not only a travesty, but it's heresy.

    Whoever came up with this dumb idea needs to be tied to a chair and forced to listen to the song Bootylicious on a loop for 48 straight hours.

    Beyonce can't act. Why does this woman keep getting cast in films?

    Even though she would create a lot of publicity for the film I still don't get why they'd cast someone who really cant act.

    Beyonce is systematically ruining classic songs.

    I still don't understand what Emporio Armani was thinking hiring her to sing "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." And now she's going to growl her way through "At Last" and ass that up, too.
