ALICIA KEYS ON QUANTUM OF SOLACE THEME

Singer ALICIA KEYS is attacking her film career on a couple of different fronts. First up, her co-starring role in THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES (which has her sharing the screen with Oscar winners QUEEN LATIFAH and JENNIFER HUDSON ).

And then, her pairing with WHITE STRIPES frontman JACK WHITE to write and perform ANOTHER WAY TO DIE, the theme song to the upcoming James Bond film, QUANTUM OF SOLACE.

We caught up with KEYS in Toronto recently and she filled us in on the Bond song and the fact that she doesn’t know what QUANTUM OF SOLACE means either.

PEGG takes over the role of Scotty, the Enterprise Chief Engineer originally played by JAMES DOOHAN. Because ABRHAMS’ film is a prequel and tells of how the Enterprise crew first came together, PEGG tells HOLLYWOOD OUTBREAK that he chose to play the character from scratch and not from DOOHAN’S portrayal.
