This Saturday’s edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta’s Entertainment Industry is going to be another great one indeed!
I had a chance to chat exclusively with the casting directors Winsome Sinclair and Donald Jarmond. The two open up about working on the highly anticipated Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez on Me” (which opens this weekend) as well as their numerous other film projects. Sinclair first got her start working with the legendary Spike Lee and did casting for many of his films including “Jungle Fever,” “Malcolm X” and “Crooklyn.” These are definitely two behind-the-scenes stars that you will want to know.
I also had the opportunity to talk one-on-one with singer, actress and dancer Crystal Fox. She opens up about playing Hanna Young on Tyler Perry‘s popular soap opera, “The Haves and the Have Nots.” She also talks about her FREE “Dance for Diversity” event that is taking place in Atlanta on 6/24 and an unforgettable moment she shared with her aunt—Nina Simone.
#UPFRONT Inside Atlanta Entertainment Industry is 30-minute radio magazine that features one-on-one interviews with all of the major players and behind-the-scenes superstars that make Atlanta the “Entertainment Capital of the South.” It airs every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and his hosted by yours truly, Ray Cornelius.
