LOS ANGELES –
Alicia Keys is adding another note to her acting resume. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has been cast in the big-screen adaptation of the best-selling book, “The Nanny Diaries,” Keys’ spokeswoman, Kelly Bush, said Thursday.
The film features
Scarlett Johansson as a nanny for a wealthy Manhattan family.
Laura Linney and
Chris Evans also star. Keys will play the nanny’s best friend, Bush said.
The character is a far cry from the assassin she plays in the upcoming action flick “Smokin’ Aces,” which features
Jeremy Piven and
Keys, 25, and longtime manager Jeff Robinson formed a production company, Big Pita, Lil’ Pita, in January that will create original television and movie projects — and even more acting opportunities for Keys.
