AS THE WORLD TURNS Tamara Tunie (Jessica) will be taking audiences to new heights when she headlines the famous Feinstein’s club at the Loews Regency Hotel in New York City this month. “I guess you can call it a cabaret act,” she confides of her aptly titled show, Yes, I Can Sing! “But I think of it more as an evening of great music and a little chatter.” Together with her renowned band members: Mike Renzi, Gerald Cannon, and Buddy Williams, she’ll be taking to the stage from Tuesday, October 28, through Saturday, November 3. “I’m excited about working with them because they’re really exceptional musicians,” she enthuses. For reservations, call (212) 339-4095 or visit Feinsteinsatloewsregency.com.
Next, Tunie takes to the skies when she stars in Paramount Pictures’ new blockbuster, Flight. “It’s about a commercial airline pilot (Denzel Washington) who successfully crash lands a plane and is touted the hero; however, at the hospital, they draw blood and his toxicology reports [present] questions,” previews Tunie. Look for the actress to play the leader of the flight crew who after helping to save the plane gets unwillingly caught up in the investigation. “I consider this to be my first action movie,” she relates. “I had such a good time shooting [it], I didn’t want it to be over. I cried!” The film, which also stars Don Cheadle, John Goodman, and Melissa Leo (Linda, ALL MY CHILDREN), opens Friday, November 2.
