In our second part of If Beale Street Could Talk EMExclusive, I was part of a roundtable with Screenwriter/Director Barry Jenkins.
In this EMExclusive, I interviewed actress Kiki Layne about her new film “If Beale Street Could Talk”. In early 1970s Harlem, daughter and wife-to-be Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny. Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together, but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit. I sat down with Kiki during a roundtable to talk about her big-screen debut!

On today’s edition of the HOLLYWOOD INSIDER, Dean on the Scene talks to John David Washington. The Morehouse grad got his acting by playing a small role in the biopic “Malcolm X” working with director Spike Lee. Twenty-five years later, he not only stars in the HBO drama “Ballers” but he’s also working with Spike Lee once again in the new Focus Features film “BlacKkKsman”. Based on a true story, the movie follows Ron Stallsworth, a newly minted Colorado Springs detective who sets out to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. I sat down with J.D. to talk about playing Ron on the big screen and playing football again on the small screen.
On this edition of the HOLLYWOOD INSIDER, a new documentary brings to life the bestselling book about families who have overcome extraordinary challenges through love, empathy, and understanding.

This summer, we’re going to have a film that has never ventured to the life of Eighth Grade. A grade in which most of us leave middle school/junior high and start our life of high school. Today in our second part of EMExclusives, we have two of the young stars from the movie. Ladies and gents, I bring to you Elsie Fisher who plays Kayla Day, an eighth grader in her final week of middle school and Emily Robinson who plays Olivia, a high school senior who Kayla shadows for one day.
Today in our first of two-part series of EMExclusives, we are gearing up for the upcoming film Eighth Grade. Kayla (Elsie Fisher) is a young lady who must endure the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through her last week of middle school — and the end of one disastrous year of eighth grade. For our first interview, I recently sat down with comedian turned first-time director Bo Burnham.
