It’s an Ambitious Edition of ‘The Mix’

If last week’s cantankerous edition of The Daily Mix did indeed send you scurrying for the Alka-Seltzer, you’ll be happy to know that this week’s show is downright inspirational.

Because all 13 of our special guests have the highest of hopes for themselves, their country and/or Planet Earth.

Cases in point:

CAPTION: “My mission is to do what I can to keep our troops and their families strong,” Gary (above) tells us.

Gary Sinise hopes that the new documentary he executive pro- duced, Brothers at War, will open more Americans’ eyes to the plight our brave men and women fight- ing in Iraq.

—In hopes of not stressing-out her kids, Olympic gold medalist Mary Lou Retton limits their extracurricular act- ivities to one per semester.

—Despite the fact that The Cheetah Girls recent wrapped their farewell tour, Adrienne Bailon hopes to carry her band’s torch in order to con- tinue empowering young women.

Spike Lee hopes Americans continue doing the right thing on the racial front, despite the fact that we now have an African American in the oval office.

Keshia Knight Pulliam hopes to portray a wildly popular, still-living diva on the silver screen.

—Despite being 83 years old (and happily married!), Tony Curtis hopes to meet one of our hosts for a dinner date “at the train station.”

So don’t miss The Daily Mix, hosted by everyone’s favorite pod jockey, Shaun Daily, tonight – and every Monday – at 9 p.m. ET!

Keshia Knight Pulliam: Jonesing to Play Janet

As if watching the littest Cosby kid portray a streetwalker on the big screen isn’t ironic enough, next we may have to bear her popping her top at the Super Bowl.

This week on Buzzworthy Radio, Keshia Knight Pulliam – who played Rudy on The Cosby Show – says she’s setting her sights on a particular biopic.

“My dream role is to play Janet Jackson, if she ever does her life story while I’m still alive – and I’m young enough to play her,” Keshia, 29, tells host NaVell Lee.

Janet, of course, made healines in 2004 when Justin Timberlake “accidentally” ripped her bustier off during their halftime show at the  Super Bowl.

And though it hasn’t quite come to that yet, Keshia is currently starring in Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail – as a hooker and former drug addict.

Keshia also has her eye on an Angelina Jolie-type role, telling NaVell:

“I really, really wanna do some sort action movie. You don’t really see a lot of African-American women – or just women in general – who will play those fighting roles.”
