Published

on

It was all good just a month ago.

Last month, Lance Gross stopped by the HipHollywood loft to chat about his was NBC show Crisis. While raving about the storyline and cast, he also said he was looking forward to the future of the show. “We’re all just having fun, we’re excited about it. It’s a great cast and we’re looking forward to the future with it,” the handsome actor told HH exclusively.

But, unfortunately there won’t be a future for the show. NBC has decided to pull the political drama from it’s line up. Gross took to Instagram to express his feelings on the news…while still choosing to focus on the future.

“It’s was fun! I’ll miss this cast & crew #myfutureisbright,” Lance posted on Instagram with a picture from The Hollywood Reporter.

    This really sucks. I’m really sick of the major networks just pulling the plug on great new shows before they have a real chance to make a foothold. They don’t have the viewers of the reality shows that have been running for 10-20 years? Well I guess that means that we should cancel it before it has the chance to gain that audience. smh, they’ve been doing this for a while now. No wonder there aren’t any good shows that stick around.

    Im so upset! This was a good show! The show could have went in so many different directions. All the horrible shows that are still on TV. This is sad news.

    I think its a shame to cancel shows we As Viewers really like. nbc needs to get with the program or they network will have problems. I really like hostages and crisis a lot. Crisis should have aleast got to finish the story line for us to see.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
