Okay, I'm not a big fan of her music, nor was I mesmerized by her performance in "Dreamgirls," but Beyonce keeps on getting movie projects!

This time, the pop star is set to play famed blues singer Etta James in new movie "Cadillac Records."

The songstress will join Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright and Cedric the Entertainer in the 1950s-set film.

I was sifting through my previous interviews, and lo and behold, I found this fun one-on-one I had with The Jonas Brothers!

I talked to them last year for Disney's "Meet the Robinsons," and in just a few months, their career zoomed exponentially!

I must admit I enjoy their pop song "S.O.S.," and they're a bunch of fun stars to talk to!

We talked about:

*** the film and their favorite characters
*** the history of their band and the musical instrument they play
*** the song "Kids of the Future" -- the closing credits song for "Meet the Robinsons" and a re-do of Kim Wilde's "Kids in America"
*** the moral story of "Meet the Robinsons"

I think they had a blast, as much as I did! Take a look!

Many rumors are swirling about the fate of Ledger's movies.

First, Johnny Depp is supposed to replace tragic actor Heath Ledger in what was to be his latest film role, in the fantasy flick "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."

Now the film’s director, Terry Gilliam wants his pal Johnny Depp, 44, to film the remaining scenes. A studio insider said: “There is a point in the film when Heath falls through a magic mirror. He could change into another character after that and that is where Johnny would come in. “It’s a weird, fantasy, time-travel movie so Heath’s character could easily change appearance. It would be a poignant moment.

Another rumor is that the Warner Bros marketing folks are mulling over the July 18 release of "The Dark Knight," where, Mister Heath was set to be the Joker! The centerpiece of the marketing campaign is centered around Ledger's character, now that he's gone, no one would be able to grant interviews for the movies.

Take a closer look at Ledger's Joker, didn't he eerily resemble Brandon Lee's "The Crow?" And we all know the tragic fate that met Brandon while shooting that movie. But for now, let's relish what will be Mister Heath's most-watched performance, Batman's most famous nemesis, the Joker in "The Dark Knight."
