From director George Tillman Jr., the indie drama The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete tells the story of 13-year-old Mister (Skylan Brooks).  When his hard-living mother (Jennifer Hudson) is apprehended by the police, Mister and his 9-year-old friend Pete (Ethan Dizon) are left alone to forage for food and dodge Child Protective Services while trying to stay alive in the Brooklyn projects.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress/singer Jordin Sparks (who plays Mister’s friend, Alice) talked about how she auditioned for this role, what made her want to be a part of telling this story, how she viewed her character, how Alice’s fate in the original script was different from what it is in the film now, and her own support system.  She also talked about the key to maintaining success in this business, working on Left Behind, a film with Nicolas Cage about the rapture, how memorable her time was on Broadway, doing In the Heights, shooting an upcoming episode of CSI, and keeping a balance between her acting and singing careers.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.
