Singer SOPHIE B HAWKINS has landed two major new projects - playing JESSICA SIMPSON's mum and William H Macy's wife.

The DAMN! I WISH I WAS YOUR LOVER singer will star alongside Macy and GINA GERSHON in a movie about convicted murderers the WEST MEMPHIS 3 and she has also signed on to play Simpson's mother in an untitled new film.

The 36-year-old singer says, "I always wanted to be a mother and I'm told that Jessica's mother had her when she was very young, so I'm OK with that."
