This week’s edition of “UPFRONT” is going to be an exciting one if I do say so myself! I’ll be talking to “Collateral Beauty” star Jacob Latimore about his new film and starring alongside A-List actors Will Smith, Kate Winslet and Helen Mirren.

Atlanta actress Jasmine Burke stopped by the “UPFRONT” studios to dish about her new role in Lee Daniels‘ Fox series “STAR,” which debuts next Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. after the season finale of “Empire.” Burke, who is also starring in Bounce TV’s “Saints & Sinners,” also discussed her new single, “How Many Ways” and a new indie project she shot at Clark Atlanta University.

Finally! I had the extreme pleasure of attending this week’s Atlanta red carpet premiere of “Fences” starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. I got a chance to briefly chat with the two-time Oscar winning actor, who is also directing the film. In addition to that, I talked to his co-stars MyKelti Williamson, Jovan Adepo and Stephen McKinley Henderson. “Fences” is based on the Tony Award winning play written by the late August Wilson.

Make sure you tune into “UPFRONT” on Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK or online at www.wclk.com.
