Jones Has Perfect Acting Aura

Hong Kong director WONG KAR-WAI insists Grammy-winning singer NORAH JONES is the perfect choice for his latest film, even though she has no acting experience. Jones will star with JUDE LAW, NATALIE PORTMAN and RACHEL WEISZ in the film MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS, and Kar-Wai was convinced to cast her after seeing her "acting aura". He explains, "Of course everyone knows her because she's a singer, but I didn't pick her for this film because she's a very successful singer. "I think she's suitable for acting. This is instinct. It's like how I felt that FAYE WONG could act when I first saw her a few years ago. There's a very special aura." Wong was a Chinese pop star who appeared in his movies CHUNGKING EXPRESS and 2046.
