Susie Diamond is a fictional character who appears in the romantic comedy-drama film The Fabulous Baker Boys Portrayed by actress Michelle Pfeiffer , Susie is a former escort who becomes a professional lounge singer when she is hired to help revitalize the career of The Fabulous Baker Boys, a waning piano duo consisting of brothers Jack and Frank Baker. Susie's addition to the group benefits both the trio's career and her own, but she also inadvertently generates conflict between the two brothers as Frank strongly disapproves of Jack's romantic interest in Susie, ultimately jeopardizing both the brothers' relationship with each other and the trio's future as a musical act. Susie was created for the film by director and screenwriter Steve Kloves. Although Kloves was interested in casting Pfeiffer in the role from the beginning, Pfeiffer was much more hesitant to commit, citing exhaustion after having just recently completed several films at the time until Kloves ultimately convinced her to accept. Actress Jodie Foster and singer Madonna were also considered for the role, among other candidates. Having not sung on-screen since her first leading role in the musical film Grease 2 , Pfeiffer initially experienced reservations about providing her character's vocals herself but ultimately underwent several months of vocal coaching in preparation for the film's musical numbers.
It follows Jack and Frank Baker, two brothers struggling to make a living as lounge pianists in Seattle. Desperate, they take on a female singer, Susie Diamond , who revitalizes their careers, causing the brothers to re-examine their relationship with each other and with their music. The Fabulous Baker Boys, Jack and Frank, are brothers living in Seattle, making a living in lounges and music bars, their gimmick being that they play intricate jazz and pop-flavored duets on matching grand pianos. Frank handles the business aspect while Jack, single, attractive, and more talented as a player, feels disillusioned and bored with the often hackneyed material they use. Nonetheless, he is able to live a comfortable and responsibility-free existence because of Frank's management, sleeping where and with whom he pleases. Frank has a wife and family he adores, but Jack has no personal connections in his private life, other than Eddie, his soulful but aging Black Labrador, and Nina, the lonely child of a single mother living in his building, who walks Eddie and takes piano lessons from Jack.
I tiptoed into my current relationship with a medical student dating two years, med school is almost overand one of the first things I brought up when he was pursuing me and he pursued me HARD was that I would not be the kind of person that would date a doctor. I am afraid of what these years ahead could mean to our family; make it or break it. I pray the holy Spirit will provide guidance to both of us, and that love conquers all.
