Jill Scott Lands Role in New FX Drama Snowfall
Singer Jill Scott is adding another acting credit to her already impressive resume.
According to published reports, Jill will be joining the cast of Snowfall, a new FX drama from Boyz n’ the Hood director John Singleton.
Also set to join the cast is Lauren London, who just wrapped up a three season stint on BET’s The Game. Both ladies join previously announced cast members Damson Idris and Billy Magnussen.
“ATL” actress Lauren London is being featured in the latest issue of Complex Magazine. The actress, who can presently be seen on the new version of Beverly Hills 90210, is doing a bit of promotion for her latest film “Next Day Air”. Sitting down for a quick one-on-one, the actress spoke about the usual: internet rumors, her taste in men, and what plans she has for the future.
We hear your idol is Barbra Streisand. Can’t say we saw that coming.
Actress Lauren London arrived at the June 2008 BET Awards Celebrity Billiards Tournament, wearing a strapless grey romper and a pair of brown studded Report Signature t-strap sandals. Meagan Good also owns the same pair of heels, and the Sony Ericsson VIP Party at Liv Nightclub at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami Beach, Florida. Meagan paired hers with high-waisted black leggings, a slouchy white t-shirt, and her fave black leather jacket.
The Los Angeles premiere for the film Cadillac Records was held last night and the two Brown Sista stars of the movie were there to walk the red carpet. Beyonce Knowles and Gabrielle Union, who coincidentally share the same hairstylist, showed up for the event looking very coordinated, in basic black dresses. Beyonce, who stars as Etta James in the film, was accompanied by her mom Tina Knowles, while Gabrielle showed up with good friends and fellow actresses, Sanaa Lathan and Regina Hall. Gabrielle recently spoke about her long standing relationship with her co-star and who knew- the two have been good friends every since they were teenagers.
Brown Sistas Gabrielle Union, Kerri Hilson and Lauren London will all appear in Ne-Yo’s upcoming video for his hit single Miss Independent. The soulful singer was spotted on the Santa Monica set of his video shoot accompanied by all three ladies, as well as fellow R n’ B crooner, Trey Songz, who also makes a guest appearance. Gabrielle, Kerri and Lauren are no strangers to appearing in music videos as Lauren was discovered on a video set, while Kerri and Gabrielle have both appeared in videos alongside Timbaland, Rich Boy, LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes.
Solo was recently spotted out and about in London. She wore a strapless French Connection ‘Wizard’ dress, with trendy two-tone booties and a Fendi ‘Radica’ bag, retailed at $1,140. Lauren wore the same strapless bubble dress, with funky black laced-up Givenchy booties, at this year’s BET Awards.
* Who do you think wore it best?
Unless you’re a celebrity, rich, or hoping to be in financial debt, it’s not easy to splurge on things like an $11,200 Louis Vuitton bag, $600 shades by Chanel, or a $2,000 pair of Christian Louboutin pumps — EVERYBODY AIN’T ABLE!
For this edition of ‘Star Looks, For Less’ we have…
She attended Alonzo Mourning’s ‘Summer Groove Beach Ball’ party in Miami last night. On her feet, Gabby sported a pair of Roger Vivier’s ‘Satin Rosette Platform Sandals’, originally retailed at $1,050!
Like I said — “Everybody ain’t able!” — so if you’d like an affordable pair like Gab’s, check out Baker’s ‘Salma’ pumps, with a 4 1/4″ heel, for only $39.99 .
