From Justin to Kelly - Anika Noni Rose omission
Fisackerly posted a topic in How Did This Get Made?A brief omission from the FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY episode - None of you mentioned that Anika Noni Rose (who played "The Black Friend") has gone on to have a very successful career in film and on stage. She was one of the leads in DREAMGIRLS (the one who wasn't Beyonce or Jennifer Hudson) and she did the voice of Tiana (the lead) in THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. She also won a Tony in 2004 (the year after FJTK) for a supporting role in CAROLINE, OR CHANGE and was in COMPANY with Neil Patrick Harris. I actually thought she was okay in the movie, given the material. I think "okay" is as good as anyone could hope for, honestly.
