Taraji P. Henson, Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union have all recently landed new acting gigs.  Get the deet on their projects inside.....

Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson have signed on to star in the Screen Gems produced, Aimee Lagos-written screenplay No Good Deed. 

It centers “around a former DA-turned-stay-at-home mom and her two small children who are terrorized and kidnapped from their home when she invites a good-looking mysterious stranger in to wait for help after his car ran off the road.”

Idris will also executive produce the flick which starts shooting soon in Georgia.

 

And on the small screen.....

 

Gabrielle Union has signed on to shoot a pilot created by producing/directing duo Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil for BET called "Single Black Woman." Gabby will play a SBF who is the host of a popular Atlanta-based talk show host similar to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. This ought to be interesting...

In case you missed it, director Ryan Murphy has cast Beyonce, along with her good friend Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, and Cameron Diaz in his star-studded musical One Hit Wonders.  The story revolves around three washed up singers who each had a big hit in the 1990s, and decide to stage a comeback by forming a supergroup.  "SNL" star Andy Samberg will co-star in the film a well.

Single Black Female + BET =

Single Black Female + BET = ghetto disaster. Gabby will play a black female Jerry Springer and her guest will be there to act an ignorant fool over men. I already see what this show will be about.

Happy for Ildris & Taraju.

Happy for Ildris & Taraju. Taraji is doing her thing on "Person Of Interest!" If y'all don't watch that show then you are seriously missing out on a great show! I'm definitely happy for Gabrielle and hope that the writing is good. The writing on "Let's Stay Together" and "Reed Between The Lines" has been great so it's possible for a BET show to have good story lines. Hopefully the Akil's don't allow the writers from "The Game" to touch this show. Mara should put herself as the head writer. And Gabrielle doesn't play the same character in every movie. Sure, we're used to seeing her play cocky, confident and beautiful characters, but she's also played different characters like in "Something The Lord Made" and others. She's also done some independent films. What she's said is that Hollywood has type-cast her in roles like the "Bring It On" role and won't even allow her to read for more challenging roles. I've been a fan since she got her first regular gig(outside or guest appearances on all the teen shows she did in the 90's) on "City Of Angels" on which she played the cocky, confident and arrogant Dr. Courtney Ellis over a decade ago. She's still working so she must be doing something right.

I would LOVE for this story

I would LOVE for this story to have been about Idris and Taraji dating...but the movie sounds good too:) All interesting except the Gabby thing, though she plays that role often and well (typecast), she'd need a great supporting cast to hold my interest for an entire season. I think ths is a good role for bey, she doesn't do comedy (goldfinger) or action (the movie with Idris, can't think of the name) well but she's beautiful on screen and did well in Dreamgirls. I'd watch.

Gabby's acting is annoying as

Gabby's acting is annoying as hell though. She plays the same damn character or at least comes off as the same character, in all her movies. I've never watched a movie and come out saying "WOW, Gab was the shiiiiiiet". Maybe TV is her calling. Beyonce should leave acting all alone. That is all. I like watching Taraji, now she's an actress.

All fab castings from three

All fab castings from three of my favorite ladies -- Taraji, Gabby & of course, Bey! I'm sure Bey is going to love working alongside her good friend Gwyneth. I hope the Akil's do a good job with the SBF show because the writing for the Game so far has been mediocre.

Sigh....this flick as well as

Sigh....this flick as well as A Star Is Born. More one-dimmensional roles for Beyonce to play. Well it does have Alist names on it, it'll be a must see regardless. Beyonce will no doubt be the standout leader of the flick and the soundtrack may at least get her a Golden Globe nod for best Song.
