CASTING: Mike Epps as Richard Pryor!

I really enjoyed Mike Epps' performance as Satin in Sparkle! He surprised me because I had only seen him do comedy prior to Sparkle. I believe Mike Epps will give another great performance as Richard Pryor. I also believe he has the look. Something else of note: Epps has already played Pryor in Nina (the Nina Simone travesty biopic) I wonder if that played a role in his being cast in Lee Daniel's production. Either way I have confidence in Epps.

New Lifetime TV Movie!!

Actress Yaani King will be playing Kessie in Lifetime’s upcoming TV movie Deliverance Creek. Yaani is listed sixth on the film’s IMDb page. I feel like this may turn out to be another Hannah's Law .  Which means that while I am excited I am extremely reserved in my expectations. I want Kessiah to shine ... but doubt she will.  Oh yeah and Nicolas Spark is the writer. 

New Scripted Series News!!

A new scripted series based on stories from the Underground Railroad. The series name will be "Underground" and is being produced by Sony Pictures Television (SPT) and Tribune Studios for an expected 2015 premiere.  This series was  created and written by Misha Green (" Sons Of Anarchy ," "Heroes") and Joe Pokaski ("Heroes," " CSI ") who also serve as Executive Producers, with writer Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind," "I Am Legend"). What do yo think?What historical figures would you like to see come to life?  I'm excited for what this project could be. But there is a great possibility that things could be whitewashed or diluted.
