American Idol’s Jennifer Hudson Stars in “Dreamgirls”

Cast of Dreamgirls

I’m not sure how this one completely slipped by me, but I just moments of go found out that former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson has the lead role in the upcoming motion picture version of “Dreamgirls“.  With all the type surrounding Jamie Foxx and Beyonce, I never realized that my girl Jennifer was playing the legendary role of Effie White.  This role, which was made famous on Broadway be the legendary Jennifer Holliday, was rumored to be going to American Idol winner Fantasia Barino.  But in the end it was Jennifer’s soulful and crazy powerful voice who took the role. 

Maybe this is old, old news to many of you, but it’s news to me so I thought I was pass it along.  I really loved Jennifer Hudson on AI, and thought she was dismissed way too early.  Now I have another exciting reason to see Dreamgirls when it hits the theaters in December (besides John Krasinski’s minor role).
