Kerry Washington & Craig Robinson's New "Tyler Perry Presents PEEPLES" Promos + Mel B. Nabs New Judging Seat
Kerry Washington, who is presenting at this Sunday's Oscars, is staying in movie theaters year around. Check out her movie poster & promo for her upcoming romantic comedy flick, plus Mel B. is newest "America's Got Talent" judge...
It seems like she never takes a break, and has a movie in theaters at all times, as well as a hit show on ABC. "Scandal" star Kerry Washington's new film, Tyler Perry Presents Peeples--formerly Tina Gordon Chism's We The Peeples--is hitting theaters May 10th. And the up close and personal promo posters were just released.
Here's the full synopsis of the flick, all about a man enduring a weekend from hell to impress his girlfriend's family:
Wade Walker is eager to propose to his girlfriend, Grace Peeples. But after a year of living together, the beautiful, successful Grace is still cagey about introducing average guy Wade to her ambitious, upper crust family. So when Grace leaves for an annual reunion at her parents’ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on Grace’s finger. However Wade's plans go hilariously awry when he meets the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family who’ll do whatever it takes to keep up appearances. Wade soon finds himself caught in a web of white lies and comic dysfunction, and realizes that his only hope of ever marrying Grace means a take-no-prisoners face-off with Judge Peeples, Grace’s disapproving dad who won’t accept anything less than the very best for his favorite daughter.
Craig Robinson as Kerry's love interest? Hilar.
Kerry & Craig's co-stars include David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk. Tyler Perry seems to have taken the (publicity) helm of the film as producer, and we'll be seeing.
In other news of new gigs, Mel B. is back at the judge's table. NBC's "America's Got Talent" is losing Sharon Osburne, but gaining Spice Girl Mel B.
Entertainment Weekly reports:
Spice Girl Mel B (aka Melanie Brown) will join the summer reality hit’s judging panel. She’ll take a seat beside Howard Stern and Howie Mandel critiquing the show’s wild variety of performers. The pop singer has live competition show experience having served as a judge on the Australian version of The X Factor as well as guest hosted on the show’s UK version.
Say what you want, but this mom of three keeps herself a job. Loves it.
