Lenny Kravitz's Character in 'Precious' Specifically Written for Him


January 25, 2010 07:49:50 GMT


Filmmaker Lee Daniels was so determined to include Lenny Kravitz in Precious - he build a role in the movie especially for the rocker. Daniels approached the singer about appearing in his critically-acclaimed new picture, "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire", but the star had to turn down the offer because he was tied up on tour.

The director insisted on including Kravitz, so he built up a small role to give the rocker a chance to show off his acting skills. Kravitz says, "He (Daniels) said he'd been looking for me. I was out on a long tour and couldn't accept a major film role. The compromise was (my character) Nurse John. This was a way for Lee and I to feel each other out. The character only makes a fleeting appearance in the book, but Lee built the role for me. I think it was a good idea to have one positive male role model in Precious' miserable life."

Radiohead's Ed O'Brien Believes Illegal Download Not Leading to Bankruptcy

January 25, 2010 06:25:43 GMT

He insists the record industry will not collapse as a result of online trading - but bosses need to offer cheaper music in order to survive. O'Brien says, "I have a problem when people in the industry say it's killing the industry, it's the thing that's ripping us apart. I don't actually believe it is... (Pirates) might not buy an album, but they're spending their money buying concert tickets, a t-shirt, whatever."

Moviemaker Rules Out Allegation Over Feud With Farrah Fawcett

January 25, 2010 03:00:37 GMT


The filmmaker who is facing a lawsuit from Farrah Fawcett's estate has dismissed accusations he fell out with the late actress over plans for her documentary - insisting he is looking forward to proving his case in court. In a suit filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Friday, January 22, representatives of the estate allege Craig Nevius "sensationalized" the "Charlie's Angels" star's story in the "amateurish" footage he produced.

The papers, obtained by TMZ.com, also allege Nevius sought "misplaced revenge" after the actress rejected his work, by revealing private and personal information about Fawcett, giving out footage without her consent and embezzling cash from the trust she set up for the film. But Nevius is adamant the claims aren't true, insisting he enjoyed a cordial working relationship with Fawcett, who died in 2009 following a battle with anal cancer.
