Now it's time to meet the singing and dancing Ms. Diaz.
As you may have heard, Diaz is playing Miss Hannigan in the upcoming movie adaptation of Annie.
"We've been singing and dancing in rehearsals for the last month," says Bobby Cannavale, who plays a political advisor in the film (It's a new role just for this movie). "Cameron Diaz and I have a big dance number…She's pretty good, you know."
Cannavale has also learned they he could actually…dance!
"My choreographer was telling me that I'm like Rain Man," he said. "He's like, 'Wow, man, you pick this stuff up really really easily.' I had no idea that I could because I don't really like to dance."
Quvenzhané Wallis—who at 9 years old became the youngest Best Actress Oscar nominee for her work in Beasts of the Southern Wild—stars in the title role for director Will Gluck's updated take on the "Tomorrow" musical with Jamie Foxx playing the Daddy Warbucks-like billionaire character.
Jay-Z and Will Smith are producing.
A 1982 film adaptation directed by John Huston starred Carol Burnett as Miss Hannigan and Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks. Playing Annie was an 11-year-old unknown named Aileen Quinn.
