Kelly Rowland Eyes Major Hollywood Role Ahead Of New Album



After sinking her teeth into 2003’s ‘Freddy Vs Jason’, Kelly Rowland sets her sights on a leading Hollywood role this year, doing so before the release of her hotly anticipated new album!

Sharing her big screen sized ambitions during a recent interview with ‘Billboard‘, the ‘Simply Deep’ singer stressed her interest in playing a character far removed from herself, no doubt hoping to follow in the footsteps of fellow singer/actresses Jennifer Lopez, Jill Scott and her old pal, Beyonce.

Hit the 1 minute 27 mark below!

The star explained:

“I’ve had meeting with directors…I’m actually ready to take on a role, and like really sink my teeth into it, and I would love a role that really pushes me to where it’s something completely different off, to where I have to transform.”

    Kelly was one of my favs in Friday vs Jason and I was happy she didn’t die in the beginning lol

  2. NataliaThrills April 11, 2014

    Kelly should play Olivia’s long lost sister in Scandal.

  3. Skyfall April 11, 2014

    Maybe she should try to get on with that “The BodyGuard” remake

    • ItsCheryl2Bh April 11, 2014

      Good idea and Beyonce would play Whitney’s character.

    • ABC April 11, 2014

      Bodyguard remake? Why are they always screwing with the classics? Have they run out of movie ideas?

      • Skyfall April 11, 2014


        I’m weak!!


        I’m not sure if they’re still doing it, but they wanted Rihanna back in 2011 but she

        They really are running out of ideas. I learned in my psychology and communication classes that the movie industry recycles the same plots about every 5 years and if you look closely, it’s true. Also, the film industry has a habit of making unnecessary sequels to films just to generate revenue. Classic money over Art scheme.

    So she’s bored of playing Beyonce’s understudy?

    Nothing wrong with keeping yourself working but focus on one project at a time. You want a successful #1 album then focus on creating one and promoting it, you want to do a movie then finish promoting your album then venture into that. Kelly just doesn’t know how to prioritize herself. Granted when Matthew was her manager we never saw or heard anything out of her and I feel she’s making up for lost time but focus on one thing at a time.

    The only time black women can win Oscars is when they’re playing monsters, broken women or slaves so good luck to you Kelly.

    Monqiue= Monster.
    Jennifer =Broken woman
    Lupita = s****.

    • ABC April 11, 2014

      What about Whoopie and Halle?

  7. KeriMeHome April 11, 2014

    She’s only working hard now because she wants to impress a new record label and convince them that she’s a hard worker when everybody knows that she’s not.

    • Nessa1226 April 11, 2014

      B****, you need to experience something–death

  8. Iconic Cici April 11, 2014

    Don’t know it tbh.

    • BrunoMartian April 11, 2014

      Mama I Went Straight To DVD.

      • FAF April 11, 2014

        Made more money than Bruno’s discounted singles

    She says that now but wait until she feels comfortable again, she’ll be back to her lazy ways in no time.

  10. lovebird April 11, 2014

    Knowing this site’s propensity to exaggerate anything this chick does, I believe she’ll just be an extra.

    If this flop cannot sell an album, what makes you think this struggle can sell a movie? Just look at flopping x factor ratings.

    • Sarah April 11, 2014

      Can you answer me ONE simple question..why are you SO BOTHERED by Kelly??

  11. lovebird April 11, 2014

    And a Girl like me, which has outsold Kelly’s entire discography turned 8 years yesterday.

    NP: Break it off

  12. Yea ok April 11, 2014

    The fact that Kelly has a reputation for being lazy is so funny to me. I guess it was easy to ride the coattails of DC for so long. She has a lot of work to do though if this is the battle she is fighting. Making people believe she actually wants it.

  13. Kemar (@S_C_Jr on Twitter) April 11, 2014

    I think Kelly is a good actress. Definitely room to grow. I enjoyed her in Freddy vs. Jason + The Seat Filler and she seems good on television as well. I’m supportive!

  14. jackson April 11, 2014

    Why this woman keeps trying is what I fail to understand.

  15. BeyHive April 11, 2014

    I’m Here for it Kelly’s a Really good actress
    I’ll go see whatever she’s in

    • My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) April 11, 2014

      Girl you probably think Beyoncé’s a good actress! BYE!

  16. rowlandstones April 11, 2014

    she will do great.

  17. Matthew Charlery-Smith April 11, 2014

    The film is called “The Album”. It’s about a girl who gets caught up in the promotion of her new project. I hear it’s going to be a REALLY challenging role for Kelly.

  18. Sarah April 11, 2014

    I saw when she was talking to Extra TV with AJ..she said she wants to play Donna Summer…I hope that comes to life!! Kelly will MURDER that role!!!!!

  19. Navy Commander(WEST COAST) April 11, 2014

    Get your coin kelly

  20. IStanForYourFav April 11, 2014

    Get your money Kelly. I think this actually is an amazing idea. The only thing I’m worried about is if it flops, how this could truly jeopardize her future even more. I hope the movie industry welcomes you with open arms Kelly. Good luck beautiful.

  21. jack April 11, 2014

    Letoya luckett to me is better than kelly and beyonce kellys just watching what the other girls are doing and copieng toya and michelle right now

    • rowlandstones April 11, 2014

      I love letoya and Michelle the r a strong vocalist, but since when Kelly copied toya or Michelle?

      • jack April 11, 2014

        copied is a little strong more like mimicing which is fine because its working for all three ladies even tavia getting on the act

  22. FutureCIARA April 11, 2014

    I did like her acting in Freddy Vs Jason.

    That is bout it

  23. jammy April 12, 2014

    I think she is probably a good actress. I am so annoyed about her being “lazy”. Seriously, we do not know what goes on behind the scenes. Her record label or marketing team must be the true devils who caused this all to happen. More than anything she needs a marketing team that will put her work first, and not her sometimes bad decisions…

    I love KELLY! Love to see Black Women doing their thing……
