Nature Naughton Joins Ensemble Cast of ‘Step Sisters’
Naturi Naughton has joined the cast of the upcoming Broad Green comedy, Step Sisters. The Power actress is the latest name to be added to an ensemble cast that already includes Megalyn Echikunwoke (House of Lies), Nia Jervier (Dear White People), Marque Richardson (All the Way) and Eden Sher (The Middle)
Step Sisters was previously titled Ain’t No Half Steppin’ and reportedly centers around an ambitious black sorority girl who, in order to get admitted to the law school of her dreams, must teach a group of wild, party-obsessed white girls
how to steal black culture and claim it as their own the art of black Greek stepping.
The film’s script was penned by Chuck Hayward, who recently wrote for Fox’s now cancelled freshman comedy, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life. Given how foolish that show was, I can’t say I’m shocked someone affiliated with it would be behind this offensive piece of garbage as well.
I rarely slam something before I see it, but the entire premise behind this film is insulting to black Greek life and the things those involved with it hold sacred.
Having said that, I still love Naturi. She’s awesome in Power. She’s a close friend of Nicole Beharie. But no ma’am. This film is not cool and the chances of me supporting it are pretty much slim to none.
