Tika Sumpter will ring in 2016 with two new films on the horizon. The 35-year old actress, presently starring in the hit OWN drama The Haves and Have Nots, will first appear in Ride Along 2 alongside rapper Ice Cube and comedian Kevin Hart. Tika will reprise her role as Angela Payton, Ben’s (Hart) fiancée and James’ (Cube) sister.
Universal recently released a second trailer for the film, which is scheduled to open nationwide on January 15. Tika is prominently featured in all her glory, something that should please her ever expanding fan base.
Next on the horizon is the January 24th release of Southside with You. The film chronicles the first date between president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle. Tika plays Michelle, while Parker Sawyers takes on the role of the nation’s future Commander in Chief.
No trailer has been released yet, but we do have a few stills of Tika and Parker in character.
