Here are some old pics of Jennifer Hudson on location filming the Sex and the City movie. Sarah Jessica Parker reveals why JHud was chosen for the part of her assistant:

“First of all we needed to have a 20-year-old in this movie; we really have to remember that there is a significant audience now that are very, very young. “It’s a great way of reminding people who Carrie was when she came to New York; what was New York, what did it mean to her…And African-American women and women of color have been a big part of our audience for a long time (and) we really haven’t been responsible to them.”

Damn, at least they are telling the truth, we can pretty much count on one hand the amount of black people that have been on that show. Not including that BS when Blair Underwood was casted as Miranda’s boyfriend. SMH.

    How is it that you are making this seem like a bad thing? It’s good that they reached out to the black audience. I’m not sure I’d call her a token. I’m happy for her getting the part. She can fall back on an acting career if/when her singing career doesn’t work out.

    hope she does well can’t wait to see the movie

    In addition

    Are you dismissing the fact that they are also counting on her to bring in the youthful viewers. I think this is a testament to and a trial of her box office power. This can really be big for Jennifer. I’m happy for her.

    When we are ignored we get mad… I was never a fan of Sex inthe City but they should play to the audience. They want our money. Not that JHud would convenience me to go see the movie… They should have cast Blair if they wanted to me consider it…LOL

  • Lovely One

    I am more inclined to see the movie after this statement. At least they are making some attempt to include blacks and that is more than most of hollywood does. Hopefully Jennifer’s role will be sizable and not a cameo.

  • I'm Just Me

    I think that Jennifer is so pretty.

    I am so looking forward to seeing this movie on the 30th! I cannot wait, I cannot wait!

    y not keisha cole? or even laura london, or even Megs, ooh la la. A. Keys would of been a treat as well. Cats ain’t trying to go to this lilly white film to see no got damn Jenny, no sorry not a sex symbol. girl can sing but this ain’t that kind of flick eff the casting director.

    A noble effort by the Sex & The City cast. Too little too late if you ask me.

  • Just Sit and Be Pretty

    I never got into this show, never watched, largely in part because I really had no interest in a show devoid of any minority representation. Glad that JHud got an opportunity to act once again, but I’ll wait to catch it on cable…(and only then because she’s in it)

    I don’t think this is a token role. Honestly there aren’t a wide range of positions available to young people in the fashion industry…either you model or you are a fashion assistant…then you work your way up. I believe she will do well in this role hopefully she’ll have more than two lines. SMH @ keyshia cole acting…I don’t think she would have fit this movie at all. Laren or A. Keys would have be good too, but J. Hud will do this part justice.

    How long the show was on? Since ’98 I think. And now they realize they haven’t recognized African-Africans like. Never seen an episode of that show. But I know in the community I grew up in, “Sex & the City” wasn’t really talked about amongst urban women. It’s all about getting the ‘Black Dollar’. Anyway, I always thought “Girlfriends” would of been cool if they had a platform like HBO. Maybe its me but I feel this whole “Sex & the City” shyt is overrated. Especially here in New York where the movie was filmed.
