Eddie Brings Marion Berry to Life In New Film

Eddie Murphy opted out of the Oscar hosting gig (something I still have not forgiven him for) but will hopefully see a return to glory (and garner some awards attention) for his upcoming portrayal of crack smoking former Mayor of DC, Marion Berry.

HBO is developing the film and Spike Lee will be directing. John Ridley has been recruited to pen the script.

Is anyone else as excited to see this as I am?

Basketball Wives Season 4 Cast Photo

The new season of Basketball Wives Miami kicks off next year and we have the new cast photo of the old and new ladies all dressed in white and looking fly. Let's hope these newbies fit in the circle a whole lot better than Meeka Claxton did!

Single Ladies Has A New Lead

Denise Vasi may not be a household name but some of you may recognize her from the defunct soap All My Children and the basic cable hit White Collar.

Well once Stacey Dash left Single Ladies, word on the street was that Megan Good was the front runner for the Atlanta based series, but Vasi has scored the part of Racquel who is described as a businesswoman and friend of Keisha's. What type of business is not known yet, but since the character has a different name we know it's not a recast of Val.

Vasi has the same exotic look as Dash, but let's just hope she does better acting wise than Dash whose lack of talent was the fodder of many a Twitter time line and Facebook post!
