Newton Tries Funny With Murphy

THANDIE NEWTON admits she is taking a big career risk by turning her back on drama to star in a new comedy movie with EDDIE MURPHY. After emotionally draining performances in CRASH and the recently-completed THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS, the Oscar-nominated actress was desperate to find something more lighthearted. But she confesses she's afraid of the effect it will have her career. Newton says, "I really needed to do something lighter. I generally play tough roles that are emotionally hard going. I just did this film with WILL SMITH, and typically the film lightened up once my character was no longer in it. "So doing a film with Eddie is great, but I half expect the film police to come along and say, 'What are you doing? You're not supposed to be in comedies,' and take me away."
