Gabrielle Dennis Brings Nightshade to Luke Cage
There will be some new, but familiar faces around Harlem when Luke Cage returns for its sophomore season later this fall. According to published reports, actress Gabrielle Dennis will be joining the comic book series as a recurring character. The former Rosewood beauty will be taking on the role of Doctor Tilda Johnson, a brilliant holistic practitioner who spends her downtime as Nightshade, a super-villain who uses her genius-level abilities to wreak havoc on her enemies.
Fox Extends Rosewood’s Episode Order to 22
Fox’s new hit drama Rosewood is sticking around for a while, or at least until the end of it’s season one 22-episode run.
Originally slated to air for thirteen episodes, Fox ordered an additional nine, citing the show’s solid performance in live and delayed viewing.
Rosewood stars Morris Chestnut, Gabrielle Dennis and Lorraine Toussant. It has also featured Nicole Ari Parker and Rasheeda in recurring roles.

Veteran actress Lorraine Toussaint is joining the cast of Fox’s freshman drama Rosewood, which stars Morris Chestnut (The Best Man) and Gabrielle Dennis (The Game).
Toussaint , most recently seen in the Netflix original series Orange is the New Black, was a last minute addition to the one-hour procedural, and will play the mother of Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr. (Chestnut) and Pippy Rosewood (Dennis).
While enjoying my advanced preview of several Fox shows (which won’t be available to the public until they air in the fall) I discovered that actress Gabrielle Dennis, best known for her role as Janay on The Game, has landed a co-starring role in the new drama Rosewood, which stars The Perfect Guy actor Morris Chestnut.
Gabrielle plays Pippy, sister, and personal assistant to her brother, Beaumont Rosewood Jr., a private pathologist who uses wildly sophisticated technology to help Miami PD solve crimes no one else can.
