Working Woman Wednesday: Taraji P. Henson To Produce & Star in Upcoming Film About Emmett Till’s Life

Actress Taraji P. Henson has recently confirmed that she will be starring and producing an upcoming film about Emmett Till’s life and murder.

Henson tells Global Grind,

We don’t have a start date yet but I am producing ‘The Emmett Till Story’ and I’m starring as Mamie Till. She goes on to say how passionate she’s been about the project since the murder of Trayvon Martin.

For those of you that don’t know, Emmett Till was a 14-year-old boy, who was gruesomely murdered for whistling at a white woman and for that very reason he was drug out of his home, beaten and shot to death. His suspected killers were acquitted by an all-white jury in just over an hour.

John Singleton will be directing the film so you know for sure there will be no epic fails there!

Well we are all for it and excited to see what Taraji has to bring to the big screen. You Gooooo Girl!

We Are Here For It – Ray J, The TV Host!

Ray J? Ain’t that Brandy’s brother?

He will always be Brandy’s brother but we believe the singer/reality tv star, Ray J is making a new name for himself and leaving his own Hollywood footprints.

 

Well, it looks like we have some MAJOR Reali-TEA! Baristas, come fill your cup!

 

It’s been a year of celebrities just guest hosting and sitting on The Real’s couch with the four hosts ( Adrienne Houghton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai ), the daytime talk show may have finally found its fifth host to complete their circle: Ray J.

The Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star posted on his Instagram account some exciting news on Monday. “Looks like I got a new job”, he said while posing with his new co-hosts. ( pictured below)

Some fans aren’t buying it, given that the hosts are mostly women they’re already taking Ray J for a joke.

Personally, we feel it’s okay to have that balance! It’s just a situation where we have to give the man a chance, he may bring a great change to the show.

Change is always GOOD!

Well, we are here for it! Congrats Ray J aka Brandy’s brother on your new endeavor!
