Anika Noni Rose to star in NYC Production of ‘Carmen Jones’

Posted by | Ray Cornelius 

Tony Award-winning actress Anika Noni Rose is returning to her theater roots this summer in a new production of the iconic musical Carmen Jones.

According to DEADLINE, the limited engagement will begin June 8 and is directed by John Doyle along with choreography by the legendary Bill T. Jones.

Carmen Jones is set in the South as World War II rages overseas and tells the story of a tempestuous parachute factory worker who ignites her own battle in a tragic love triangle with an airman and a prizefighter. The original Broadway production debuted in 1943 followed by a 1954 film version starring icons Dorothy Dandridge, Harry Belafonte and Pearl Bailey.

Joining Rose on stage are David Aron Damane, Erica Dorfler, Andrea Jones-Sojola, Justin Keyes, Lindsay Roberts, Soara-Joye Ross, Lawrence E. Street and Tramell Tillman. The role of Joe has yet to be cast.

Rose was last seen on stage in A Raisin in the Sun and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof. She has also appeared in such films as Dreamgirls, For Colored Girls, The Princess and the Frog and most recently Everything, Everything. She was also the star of BET’s dramatic HBCU series The Quad, which was canceled this week.

Stay tuned…

Jackée talks ‘The Paynes,’ Tyler Perry, her Grandson and more! [PHOTOS]

Written by | Ray Cornelius 

I had the distinct pleasure Thursday night of having dinner with Emmy winning actress, TV icon and Broadway star—Jackée Harry. She was in Atlanta promoting her new role on “Tyler Perry’s The Paynes,” which airs on Friday evenings at 9 p.m. on OWN.

In “The Paynes,” Cassi Davis and LaVan Davis reprise their roles as Ella and Curtis Payne, from the hit series “House of Payne.” The two are enjoying their retirement when a family death takes them on the road to Florida. It is during this trip that Curtis is roped into a real estate deal by his cousin JoAnn (played by Jackée) that will tumble their lives like clothes in a dryer. The show also features Stephanie Charles, Markice Moore, JD McCrary, Sanai Victoria and Anthony O. Dalton.

This is Jackée’s first project with Perry and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

“Tyler Perry had written the part for me and I had no idea. When I got there he said, ‘I got you’ and it’s been rich. This is the first time I’ve worked for an African-American man and woman [Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey] at the same time. They are billionaires, so it feels great!”

Jackée is also excited to be back on primetime. She burst on to the scene in the early 80s as a soap opera star on NBC’s “Another World” before landing the role of a lifetime as the sassy, sexy vamp Sandra Clark on “227.” She would later star opposite Tim Reid and the Mowry twins—Tia and Tamera—in the hit series “Sister, Sister” in the 90s. She credits her sharp wit and impeccable comedic timing (that we’ve all grown to love) as the secret to her longevity.

“Everybody ain’t Viola Davis you know. I wanted to be the greatest actress around but there’s not enough parts and comedy keeps me busy. I would love to retire and do jobs here and there but it ain’t happenin and we ain’t got that many. So since you all seem to still be enthralled I continue to go on and do it. I just don’t want to get bored,” said the veteran actress.

In addition to the new show, Jackée also has a new love in her life—her grandson Kyydyn. He is the child of her son—Frank—and has already captured her heart beyond her wildest dreams.

“His name is Kydyn and I’m in love. He’s just a fat chunk of joy you know. Just a little package and you don’t even know that you’re gonna feel that way. It was instant,” she said with stars in her eyes and that wide 1000 watt smile. “It’s made me come to another level of love I never knew I had. I’ve never been in love with a little baby. (LOL) I see little babies I like but they can go right on home. However, this one is coming with me.”

In addition to questions about her career, Jackée also chatted about adapting to social media, the current #MeToo Movement, Mo’Nique and more. Check out the full interview in next week’s edition of my radio show, UPFRONT Inside Atlanta’s Entertainment Industry.

“The Paynes” starring Jackée Harry airs TONIGHT at 9 p.m. on OWN

Pam Grier to host ‘Leading Ladies Takeover’ on Bounce on Sat. Jan. 6

Posted by | Ray Cornelius

Legendary actress Pam Grier is teaming up with Bounce TV to host an evening of action-oriented, women-kicking-butt movies beginning Saturday, January 6. This is all in anticipation of the new motion picture Proud Mary, starring Taraji P. Henson.

Bounce’s Leading Ladies Takeover kicks off at 9:00 p.m. with Baby Boy, starring Henson in her big screen debut. Jennifer Lopez as a U.S. Marshall in Out of Sight follows at 11:30 p.m. and the trilogy concludes with Grier’s classic starring turn as Sheba, Baby (2:00 a.m.) All times Eastern.

In addition to the lineup on Bounce, Grier can be seen in new and exclusive pieces on Brown Sugar, the popular subscription-video-on-demand streaming service featuring the biggest collection of the baddest African-American movies of all-time. Grier discusses her pioneering career, compares her iconic characters Foxy Brown, Coffy and Sheba, Baby with Proud Mary and more in the segments.

Grier blazed a trail for actresses, showing Hollywood that women could open and carry movies as the lead characters. Many of her films seen on Brown Sugar – Foxy Brown, Coffy, Sheba, Baby, and Friday Foster to name a few – are excellent representations of that. She also starred in Jackie Brown written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and co-starring Samuel L. Jackson, Robert DeNiro and Michael Keaton. Grier received rave reviews and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress for her performance. She later starred in the TV series The L Word and Smallville with guest appearances on numerous other hit shows.

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Grier back in 2013 when she was honored during the National Black Arts Festival’s 25th Anniversary Gala. Click here to see the full story.

 Proud Mary stars Henson in the title role and opens in theaters Jan. 12.
