She won an Oscar for her portrayal of Effie White in "Dreamgirls," and now actress Jennifer Hudson reveals she's already eyeing her next emotional part.

At the NAACP Awards last weekend, Hudson told Access Hollywood she wants a role in the dramatic tale of a famous baseball hero.

"As far as film, I want to do the Jackie Robinson story," she told Access' Shaun Robinson.

Jackie Robinson starred as himself in the original version of the movie in 1950.

It is not known what part Hudson would want to take on, but she said the story of the man who broke baseball's color barrier affected her deeply.

"It tells of greatness and our history," she said. "That means something to me."
