I know it gets old for some people, but I NEVER get tired of remembering that Anika Noni Rose was in From Justin To Kelly. I assume she and Kelly Clarkson call each other every month and say, “HOW did we dodge that career-killing bullet?!?” I mean, Justin was last spied playing a tiny pink-haired funk singer in a Diet Dr. Pepper ad. Anika is in the remake of Roots. That is a serious victory.
As is this dress. She, in fact, looks generally fantastic, and if she isn’t too busy, I’d like to suggest she audition for Angelica Schuyler when Renee Elise Goldsberry takes her leave. The woman has some pipes, and that character needs someone with both compassion and charisma. Consider it handled, Lin-Manuel.
