Dramatic gasp: Brandy has landed a role in Chicago on Broadway. The singer will play housewife Roxie Hart in the 1920s-set production.

Robin Givens (in 2006) and Michelle Williams (in 2010) are the only other black women who have taken on this role. Besides Moesha, Brandy's other notable acting gigs include playing the first black Cinderella in the TV remake with Whitney Houston and, currently, The Game. Also: "The Boy Is Mine."

Admittedly, Brandy was never the most amazing actress, but Broadway will play to her hokey strengths. I leave you with a classic Cinderella moment.
