Mary J. Blige to Play Betty Shabazz in Film “Parallel Lives”

The Grammy Award winner cut her film acting chops in the 2009 Tyler Perry movie, “I Can Do Bad All By Myself.”  She currently has a role opposite such co-stars as Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin in the upcoming film “Rock of Ages” which hits the big screen on June 15.

Last year, Blige made the decision to hone her craft, so she actually embarked upon taking acting lessons.  She armed herself with a dialect coach, acting coach, piano coach, and loaded up her ammunition so that she’d be more than ready to take on any future acting endeavors with confidence.

Blige is also set to play the blues legend Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic as well.
