Jurnee Smollett, Aldis Hodge, Angela Bassett, John Legend & More Celebrate Premiere Of "Underground"
With the debut of the upcoming WGN America premiere of "Underground" on deck, celebs came out to the Hollywood premiere and afterparty to support. Get the pics of Angela Bassett, Courtney B. Vance, John Legend and the series' stars Jurnee Smollet, Aldis Hodge and more inside...
The much anticipated "Underground" tells a story, with a twist, of slaves escaping via the underground railroad set against modern music, with the series and the music executive produced by John Legend & his Get Lifted label. So celebs made their way to the Theatre At The Ace Hotel in L.A. to help the cast and crew celebrate.
Journee slayed the red carpet in these killer shoes. Love 'em! We know she's making her big brother Jussie proud with this powerful new series.
Jurnee posed it up with her hottie co-star Aldis Hodge, who also starred as MC Ren in Straight Outta Compton.
This series is definitely a good look for him.
Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner (and nine-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter if we're going to run all the credits) John Legend snapped a pic with the leading actors as he and his Get Lifted label are executive producing "Underground." Get Lifted is also overseeing the score, soundtrack and all music aspects of the series (which will include Hip Hop). Nice!
Jurnee's fellow leading actor in "Underground," Alano Miller made a colorful arrival with his date for the night DeWanda Wise. Interesting...
"American Horror Story" and London Has Fallen star Angela Bassett and her "The People vs. O.J." star husband Courtney B. Vance were front and center to support their fellow YBF actors.
Y'all know Angie doesn't know how to do anything on a red carpet BUT slay. The gorgeous 57-year-old actress rocked head-to-toe A.L.C. and served up perfect hair and makeup.
Loves these two!
One of our fave Hollywood couples posed it up with fellow long time actor and star of "Stitchers" on Freeform, Salli Richardson Whitfield:
Casual and cute look for her.
Cutie Michael Ealy, who's set to star in the upcoming season of "Secrets & Lies" on ABC, came out to support.
Upcoming "Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders" star Tyler James Williams came out to support.
So did Tyler's former "Instant Mom" co-star Sheryl Lee Ralph.
Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis, who recently stared in the movie Joy, "Underground" actress Andrea Frankle and Tommy Davidson and wife Amanda posed it up at the afterparty.
"Brooklyn Nine Nine" star Craig Robinson looked like he legit rolled out of bed and straight to this event.
"Ballers" star Omar Benson Miller was in the mix too.
"Underground" premieres on WGN America next Wednesday, March 9 at 10 PM.
