Sexy actress Meagan Good wants to play late R+B singer and actress Aaliyah in a movie about her rise to fame.

The 24-year-old beauty, who stars alongside rapper Bow Wow in his new movie Roll Bounce, has great admiration for Aaliyah, who perished in a 2001 plane crash in the Bahamas after filming the video to her hit track rock the boat.

Good says, "I would love to play Aaliyah. For all the things that black women go through in this industry, telling her story would be incredible.

"When a movie is made about the things young women go through, the studios automatically look for a Kirsten Dunst or Naomi Watts. It's not until late in the process that they think, 'Maybe it can be a black girl.'

"I think Aaliyah opened up a lot of doors with Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned, because both of those characters weren't intended for a black actress."
