First, she was Elphaba in the fantastic musical, "Wicked."
Well, actually, prior to that, she was in the original Broadway production of "Rent." But she really stole many hearts, including mine, with her revisionist take on the Wicked Witch of the West.
Now, in her third major feature film adventure, she plays the role of Nancy Tremaine in the super-fun "Enchanted" by Walt Disney Pictures.
I was lucky enough to interview her, and we talked about:
*** "Wicked" and of course, the fabulous Elphaba
*** Her "Enchanted" role as Nancy Tremaine, the fiancee of the Patrick Dempsey character
*** The search for "true love's kiss" -- and if her husband, Taye Diggs, is a good kisser :)
I LOVE HER! I HAD A GREAT TIME INTERVIEWING HER!!!
AND GO WATCH "ENCHANTED!!!"
HOW MANY KISSES? YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL WEDNESDAY, NOV. 21ST, WHEN THE FILM COMES OUT, MY REVIEW WILL ALSO HAVE A COMING-OUT PARTY!!!
TAKE A LOOK AT MY INTERVIEW WITH THE GREAT MISS IDINA MENZEL!!!

Who doesn't love the "Beauty and the Beast" score? Or "The Little Mermaid" for that matter? Well, they're all created by the great Alan Menken!
I recently had a wonderful opportunity to sit down with him for the movie "Enchanted."
We talked about:
*** His involvement with the movie
*** His 1950s musical inspiration
*** I SANG WITH HIM...BADLY I MAY ADD...
Here it is, have fun!

Amy Adams is a very interesting actress! She already has built a very impressive array of roles since her Oscar-nominated turn in "Junebug."
Now, she's the heart of the film, "Enchanted." I think a much lesser actress would not have given the role the heart that it truly needed.
I sat down with Miss Amy for the film, and we talked about:
*** Her inspiration
*** What made her want to do the film
*** The moral of the story
Here it is! HAVE FUN!

Walt Disney Pictures ransacked their own vault and came up with a truly original film! By deconstructing their old classics to reconstruct the fairy-tale genre, “Enchanted” lives up to its name – it’s simply enchanting.
