Jesse Williams and Nicole Beharie to Star in ‘Jacob’s Ladder’ Remake
Calling all Nicole Beharie fans. I’m gonna need you guys to take ten minutes away from mercilessly dragging Sleepy Hollow on Twitter for the eleventh straight day, to celebrate news of our girl landing a new gig. Via online reports, Nicole will be returning to the big screen opposite Jesse Williams in the Will Packer remake of the 1990 horror classic Jacob’s Ladder.
Nicole and Jesse will be joining actor Michael Ealy, who has already been cast to play the role of Jacob. Not much is known about Jesse or Nicole’s role in the film, though were I to venture a guess, I’d say Nicole will either be playing the role of Jacob’s girlfriend, Lizzie, or his ex-wife, Sarah.
Filming is reportedly set to begin next month in Atlanta.
Yay, Nicole for finding another role so fast. And while I’m happy her status as a “working actress” remains intact, I can’t say I’m not a bit sad she didn’t immediately land something else on TV. While seeing her every so often on the big screen is fine, I’d much rather see her weekly on my TV screen.
