Aretha Franklin recently released a list of actors and actresses that she would like to be in the movie that will portray her life.  She would like for actress Nia Long to play her older sister, Erma Franklin, actress Kerry Washington to play the role of her younger sister Carolyn Franklin; and Blair Underwood to take on the role of  her brother Cecil Franklin.  As  she’s stated previously, she sees “Red Tails” actor Terrence Howard in the part of Motown great Smokey, and Denzel Washington playing her father, the Rev. Cecil Franklin.

To play Aretha Franklin: Her top choice was Halle Berry, who denied the role because she cannot sing.  With that said, Jennifer Hudson will play Aretha in ‘From These Roots’.
