Appropriately enough, Nia Long, the dream girl of Black men everywhere, is reportedly slated to play the lead role of Zoe Reynard, a sex addict. Filmmaker Bille Woodruff is also allegedly slated to direct the film. While none of this information has been set in stone, many Zane fans will certainly jump for joy if, in fact, "Addicted" is brought to the silver screen. For those who have yet to read Zane's addictive novel, here is a brief synopsis of the rumored film: For Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children.
In this age of hour marriages and Internet sex tapes, celebrity life is often full of public drama, scandal and chaos. Not so for Nia Long. Her private life is ordered, disciplined and free of high-profile high jinks. On-screen, that good-girl glamour plays as sexy but not intimidating, gorgeous but not aloof, reserved but still as open as a back door on a summer day. In fact, it takes me three interviews, a little prying, and a couple of glasses of champagne to get her to open up. Her face is free of makeup, and her skin is as flawlessly smooth as a freshly picked peach.
