Alicia Keys to play LENA HORNE

Oprah Winfrey is reported to have cast R&B singer Alicia Keys in the lead role in her forthcoming biopic on jazz star Lena Horne.

"We’re going to start filming next year, and we’ve got Alicia," Oprah reportedly told the New York Post column during an interview for her film "The Great Debaters."

Singer Janet Jackson is reportedly devastated by the news, as she had actively pursued the role of Horne for years – and was in talks to play the music legend when the project was earmarked for a TV special.
