Published

on

Taraji P. Henson is in the middle of a scandal, and it’s pretty juicy. But, not to worry, it’s just her latest role in Bernard Weinraub’s latest play Above The Fold.  The Oscar nominated actress plays an NYC reporter who uncovers the truth behind a rape case involving three white fraternity boys and an African American woman.

HipHollywood caught up with Taraji at the opening for Above The Fold, to talk about the role, and her love for the theater. “I’ve done a million plays, it’s how I was trained in theater at Howard University,” explained Henson. “But I had never starred in a play before and I love to constantly challenge myself, so I thought here’s a great chance.”

Above the Fold is playing now – Feb. 23 at the Pasadena Playhouse.

    How fabulous she is! Good thing she got away from the train wreck that is Person of Interest. That show and its idiot writers never appreciated or maximized her talents. The drama is in a downward spiral without the actress that made all the other players so much better. Good Luck Taraji !!! May your future be ever bighter and your happiness without limits !!!

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
