John David Washington: BlacKkKsman & a Baller

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.

Get Out – Meeting the Parents Is No Fun At All!!

DANIEL KALUUYA as Chris Washington in Universal Pictures’ “Get Out,” a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of “The Visit,” “Insidious” series and “The Gift”) and the mind of Jordan Peele. When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Jordan Peele’s first effort as a writer/director fairly simmers with rage – not at the clichéd southern-fried racist rednecks of most horror movies that have discrimination at their root, but at white liberals who have all the right friends and say all the right things (or what they think are the right things).

TBS Orders Tracy Morgan Comedy Straight To Series!

tracy-morganjordan-peele

An untitled pitch from Jordan Peele – and starring Tracy Morgan – has been ordered straight to series by TBS.

In a nutshell, the concept is this: after being released on good behavior from a 15-year prison stint, Tracy is shocked to see just how much the world has changed in his absence.

TBS has ordered ten episodes of the single camera comedy series which, they say, ‘looks to capture the rawness of Tracy’s stand up persona while also commenting on race relations, the Gen X/Millennial gap and the American penal system.’

For more, read on.
