Anika Noni Rose Lands New Gig


Anika Noni Rose Joins ‘Assassination Nation’ Cast

With her hit BET series The Quad on hiatus, actress Anika Noni Rose has decided to pick up another gig. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former Dreamgirl has joined the cast of Assassination Nation, a coming-of-age thriller about four teenage girls who become the focus of worldwide media attention when an anonymous hacker leaks their personal information.

Rose will portray the mother of one of the girls, and is described as “an attractive woman with an unfortunate reputation in the small conservative town of Salem.” Thanks in part to her misdeeds with various married men, when the hacker leaks her info as well, she finds herself and her daughter on the receiving end of scorn and public ridicule.

Assassination Nation has an all-female led cast and goes into production next month. It stars Odessa Young, Abra, Hari Nef and Suki Waterhouse.
