Janet Jackson the actress

Since this isn't music related, I thought I would post here

Do you think Janet should act again, and if so, what do you see her doing? I still think she has it

Why Did I get Married 3 feat. The Rock

Empire (few episodes, where she does something with business law, like one of her career goals as a girl!)

A prequel to the Matrix, and based on the original story before Hollywood took it

SNL would be nice again!

Appearance or involvement on someone's visual album (not Beyonce)

A mom!!!

I would like to see her on Westworld or Law & Order: SVU, something that you wouldn't expect her to be in nod

On SVU would have been amazing!

It would be pretty funny if she played a villian as well in a superhero movie...she has talked about wanting to kick someone's ass in acting smile

I initially used to say that, but she wouldn't be the first or last black female mainstream artist to do that (Toni Braxton, Jody Watley) following low album sales. If there was a broadway show put to film, I can see her do that however (for coloured girls), and she seems to like stage set design, so she would make an awesome consultant for the stage too

did she ever end up making that documentary about transgendered identities?

You can download her episodes of SNL here. I prefer her as a musical guest only, she laughed too much during her 2004 hosted episode.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

It may be your last

I wish she could act and take on a movie role once the tour is over. I respect the fact she doesn't settle for just anything and is very particular about the roles she accepts, and to make it deeper, very self-aware in the characters she chooses. You can hear it when she talks about the characters and the work she does

I don't think she's best actress of all time, but really admire the fact her movies were all successful even though it was from who she associated with two, but her movie career is not something talked about as much as her music among most, unless in publications where her early roles were more acknowledged

I'm also seeing in publications and among unmentionable fanbases that say she was "always flopping" and using her low sales in the beginning to justify that, and there is a racist undertone to this that is so subtle, maybe myself being guilty of it a little cause of simply not knowing of her at early age as I knew of her brothers musical successes. From accounts over the years here (non biased since it's outside a fan group, to be fair) she was well respected on urban radio early in her career but was seen as a well liked tv actress, baby sister of the family, and music was a side thing anyway so to get that must have been a feat. i can imagine, though she herself has spoken of not having a voice when working with the hot flavour of the year.

I just know she'll take on a role similar enough to Storm or Trinity at some point, she seemed really passionate about that

Does she still have that production company deal where she was supposed to do a documentary on transgendered identites?
