Alicia Keys: Happy as producer of Mister & Pete
NEW YORK (AP) - Alicia Keys says she considered a role in The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister & Pete, but decided she was comfortable as an executive producer.
"It definitely came up once or twice," Keys said with a smile.
The film, in theatres on Friday, tells the story of two inner-city children in New York who have to take care of themselves after their mothers are taken away by the authorities.
Mister & Pete stars Jennifer Hudson and young actors Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon. Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Mackie and Jordin Sparks also appear in the movie.
