Published

Many of you may not know that Omari Hardwick is a true poet. As the host of TV One’s Verses and Flow, the actor has been known to get on stage himself to perform one of his pieces. So when the opportunity came along to play a spoken word artist in the new Charles Murray film, Things Never Said, Hardwick jumped at the opportunity.

Alongside Omari, Shanola Hampton stars in the film as Kal, an aspiring poetess trapped in a miserable marriage. Kal begins a taboo love affair with Hardwick’s character, Curtis, and the story unravels exposing different sides of both characters.

HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film to explore how poetry helped tell the story. Check out the interviews below.

Things Never Said is in theaters now!

Katt Williams Is Ready For His Comeback: “My Only Goal Is Getting Better”

Katt Williams is ready for his triumphant return!

After a series of arrests and bizarre incidents in 2016 that seemed to overshadow his public persona, Williams told HipHollywood he’s getting back to work and putting his personal issues behind him.

“Remember none of those things have ever been about work,” he said when asked if he hopes his new projects will overshadow his past missteps. “It’s more about having to deal with situations that are purposely thrown in your direction, and so I’ve been successful in the fact that I’m not nearly as good as I’m going to be,” he explained.

But if you’re thinking the 46-year-old comedian is in denial about his issues, he says absolutely not.

“I’m not one of those people that doesn’t recognize he’s stumbled,” he asserts. “I embrace the stumble because I know I’m going to come back faster than before, so my only goal is getting better at all points.”

And with six projects slated for release including the comedy, Father Figure with Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, Williams appears to be back on the right track.

“I’m really in each of these comebacks trying to be a better person than the person that left, and if you liked that person this is just a better version than that because that’s what I’m on.”

You can see Katt dishing more positivity in the exclusive clip below, and be sure to see Father Figures when it hits theaters December 22.
