Jennifer Hudson & Jordin Sparks Talk ‘The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Peete’

American Idol winners Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks show off their acting chops in the new film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Peete.

HipHollywood sat down with both ladies during the film’s junket to find out what is was like working together and starring in the emotionally charged film.

“It’s really crazy,” said Sparks of working with her Idols Hudson and Alicia Keys, who executive produced and scored the film. “When everything is in alignment it just works.”

Hudson too said working with Keys was a treat, but more challenging was taping into her character as a heroin addict.

“It was very challenging to get into Gloria,” explained Hudson. “I was intimidated down to the day we started filming I must say because she’s completely different from Jennifer Hudson the person.”

But, director George Tillman applauded Hudson’s commitment to the character and said her transformation will shock audiences.

“What I loved was that from the very beginning she was down,” explained Tillman. “Down for the tattoo’s, down for the hair and transcending her look … I’m very proud of her performance in the film.”

And Tillman is also extremely proud of the performances of Sklyan Brooks and Ethan Dizon, who carry the film as Mister and Peete, and are already being touted as one’s to watch in Hollywood.

See what these adorable guys had to say about taping into their characters and working with super stars Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks.

The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Peete is in theaters October 12.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
