First there were ten, then there were five…and now there are three. Within weeks of travelling to Atlanta in order to further her acting career, Jacksonvillian Kimberly Grant [Kimberly Grant (III) on] is selected as a top3 female finalist for a walkon role in the Hollywood movie “Think Like a Man”.

“Think Like a Man” is a feature
film set for theatrical release that is based on the Steve Harvey bestselling book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man” (the screenplay was written by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman). The film, which will be directed by Tim Story and which stars comedian Kevin Hart, is being produced by Rain Forest Films (producer of “Takers”) and Sony Pictures Entertainment subsidiary Screen Gems.

The contest that has made this possible is being administered by the Sony Pictures Entertainment initiative Face of the Fan. Contestants were given the option of auditioning for the female role of Mya or the male role of Jeremy and they were tasked with submitting their best rendition of the provided script. Thousands of contestants from across the United States accepted the challenge, but only ten men and ten women “made the cut”. Over the past several weeks the public has been tasked with crowning the winner through an open voting process that has reduced the finalists from 20 to six.

When recently asked how it feels to have made it to the top three Kimberly had the following to say: “This contest has taught me a great deal. It has not only shown me that acting is my true passion, but I can now see that other's feel the same way about me. I have had so much support from all over the country. Family, friends, distant relatives, sorority sisters, Facebook friends, Twitter followers voting for me just because I've asked for their help. This contest has been an exciting yet challenging journey; but it has taught me life is what you make it, and you have to give it all you've got if you want to reach your goals…And to everyone who has shown me kindness and constant support, thank you so much.”

Daily voting is allowed now through Monday (June 20, 2011) at 3 p.m. EST, and voting is essential. The male and female winners will be announced next week after voting concludes. For more information and to view Kimberly’s video and vote for her visit
