Missy Elliott Tips Jennifer Hudson To Play Her In Film

Rapper/producer Missy Elliott has tipped Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson to play her in a Hollywood movie of her life.

(From the AP)--

The 1 Minute Man star thinks the Dreamgirls actress and former American Idol contestant would be perfect to take on her life on the big screen.

She says, "Being as she's a heavier-sized artist, she is in the same lane as I was when I first came out. She'd be closest to me."

With album sales of 24 million, Missy Elliott is the biggest selling female rap artist of all time.

Her debut album was released in 1997 but it was her 2001 releases Miss E... So Addictive that lifted Missy Elliott to superstardom. The album had a string of hits including 'One Minute Man', 'Get Ur Freak On', and '4 My People'.

Jennifer Hudson appeared in the third series of American Idol but failed to get through to the final until she was put through by judge Randy Jackson in a wildcard round.

In the final she finished seventh.

The singer landed the role of Effie White in the film Dreamgirls. She went on to win a Golden Globe for Actress in a Supporting Role as well as the Oscar in the same category.
