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!
