Sanaa Lathan, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut Cast In “The Perfect Guy”



It has officially been announced that Sanaa Lathan, Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut will be starring in the upcoming Screen Gems movie, “The Perfect Guy.” The revenge thriller is currently in production stages and follows the story of a woman who becomes involved with a dangerous man.

In the film, Sanaa Lathan will play a 36-year-old lobbyist who leaves her relationship with her longtime boyfriend (Morris Chestnut), because he doesn’t want to take the big step into marriage. All of a sudden, she comes across Micheal Ealy’s handsome character who is described as a “the perfect guy.” Their relationship quickly develops but, “soon his protective nature morphs into something more sinister,” the press release for the movie states. Lathan’s character tries to end the relationship but it puts her in danger and she is forced to outwit him.

Speculation about the three being cast in the movie have been going around since April of this year. Sylvain White will direct the film and the release date is still unknown.


5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



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.
