'Love Jones: The Musical' Is A Theatrical Spin On A Classic '90s Love Story
Huffington Post - 5 months
Nearly 20 years after its big screen release, “Love Jones” is receiving a theatrical makeover with “Love Jones: The Musical.” The national tour, which stars an all-star cast featuring Tony Grant (as Darius Lovehall), and singers Chrisette Michelle (as Nina Mosley), Musiq Soulchild, Marsha Ambrosius, MC Lyte, Raheem Devaughn and Dave Hollister, is a musical adaptation of the 1997 film. Dubbed as “a hip ‘When Harry Met Sally,’” the romantic comedy follows a young poet, Darius Lovehall (portrayed by Larenz Tate), and photographer Nina Mosley (portrayed by Nia Long) as they navigate their emotions for one another in Chicago. While the essence of the film’s plot around Nina and Darius’ relationship is incorporated into the new musical production, veteran theater producer Melvin Childs chose to revamp the plot with additional characters, chart-topping hits, and original music to adhere to stage limitations. “There’s lots of different characters in this stage play that you didn’ ...

Why Quentin Tarantino Questioned Hiring Jamie Foxx For 'Django'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"Django Unchained" stars Jamie Foxx as the revenge-seeking slave of the title, but it wasn't a fait accompli that the Oscar-winning actor would play the role. Director Quentin Tarantino had first wanted Will Smith to play the part, and actors like Idris Elba, Anthony Mackie, Larenz Tate and Michael K. Williams were all connected to "Django Unchained" at one point or another. Foxx won out, but it wasn't always smooth sailing once he was hired. "How do you go all the way back to allow the ghosts of slaves, or ancestors to speak to you? Quentin challenged me on that," Foxx says in a new behind-the-scenes video from "Django Unchained" that HuffPost Entertainment is happy to exclusively debut above. "First time we went to the rehearsal, I was like, 'Nah, I want to say it like this.' I was really putting me into the character. He pulled me to the side, and said, 'This is what I was worried about in grabbing someone like you. Can you actually play a slave?' It hit me, like, 'Wow, ...

Ludacris Imagines The Possibilities With New Conjure Ad
MTV News - over 4 years
By Maurice Bobb Take one look at Ludacris in his new commercial for Conjure Cognac and it’s evident that the Grammy Award-winning MC is having entirely too much fun poppin’ bottles and kickin’ back with copious model chicks to engage in rap beefs. In the 44-second spot entitled “Celebrating Conjure,” the rapper/actor/pitchman born Chris Bridges, who will be featured in the upcoming movie, “Fast and Furious 6,” is raising a brandy-filled glass to toast to the good times. “This commercial captures the essence of what Conjure is all about: lifestyle, sophistication and an overall sense of euphoria,” Luda told RapFix. “I’m excited about Conjure Cognac’s tremendous success. As an entrepreneur, I have always taken an active role in growing and developing brands, transforming consumer perception using my own style. I’m doing the same with Conjure. Our motto is "Imagine the Possibilities" which means there is no limit to the products versatility. We are focused on pushing the limits of w ...

Pittsburgh Steelers Safety Sits Out Season Opener, Launches Sickle Cell Campaign
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The Pittsburgh Steelers will be one man short when they take the field for their season opener against the Denver Broncos this Sunday. Safety Ryan Clark is expected to sit out the first game in an effort to ward off symptoms of sickle cell, which have been known to flare up at Denver's low-oxygen, high-altitude Mile High Stadium. In fact, Clark nearly died the last time he played there, suffering a life-threatening "crisis" that ultimately cost him his gall bladder and his spleen. But while he's sitting out for Sunday's game, Clark is standing up in the fight against sickle cell disease, announcing the launch of Ryan Clark’s Cure League during a press conference Tuesday. The initiative aims to research and find a cure for the disease, a plight that is not only motivated by his own battle with the trait, but by the loss of his sister-in-law from it at the age of 27. “Sickle cell is fatal,” Clark told CBS Pittsburgh. “My sister-in-law died at the age of 27, the year ...

  • TEENAGE
  • 1992
    Age 16
    Following numerous small-screen roles, offers began pouring in for Tate, and in late 1992, collaborative filmmaking siblings Albert and Allen Hughes approached him to star in their debut feature Menace II Society.
    More Details Hide Details The film found Tate channeling his substantial energy into creating "O-Dog", a trigger-happy teenager. Following up with the little-seen but often-praised television series South Central, Tate would later appear in the family comedy-drama The Inkwell (1994) before re-teaming with the Hughes brothers for Dead Presidents (1995) and taking on the role of a love-stricken young poet in the romantic drama Love Jones (1997). Larenz Tate also played the role of Kenny in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in the episode "That's No Lady, That's My Cousin". There followed roles in The Postman (as the automotively monikered Ford Lincoln Mercury), the Frankie Lymon biopic Why Do Fools Fall in Love (1998, with Tate as Lymon), and 2000's Love Come Down. Though a big theatrical release had eluded Tate for the first few years of the millennial turnover, Tate would soon turn up opposite Laurence Fishburne in the high-octane but critically derided Biker Boyz (2003) A Man Apart (2003), Crash (2004), as music legend Quincy Jones in Ray (2004), and Waist Deep (2006).
