It looks like playing New Edition in the upcoming BET miniseries has the cast feeling like they should BE New Edition … 2.0, that is.

Luke James (Johnny Gill), Woody McClain (Bobby Brown), Elijah Kelley (Ricky Bell), Bryshere Y. Gray (Michael Bivins), Algee Smith (Ralph Tresvant) and Keith Powers (Ronnie DeVoe) are all set to hit the small screen as New Edition. The guys have even become so close that, even though they wrapped shooting a long time ago, they still call, text and kick it often — which is why when they told HipHollywood that they were going to do music together too, it all made sense.

HH caught up with the guys at the Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas, where they revealed that something was definitely “in the works” when it came to music that they would be doing together. But, their first priority is The New Edition Story which airs on BET January 24, 25 and 26. “This is deeper than what you’ve ever seen,” Luke exclaimed.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
