The "Sin City" sequel is working to bring "24's" Dennis Haysbert aboard as the lethal character Manute, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, the latter of whom created the "Sin City" comics, knew they couldn't bring the story of "A Dame to Kill For" to the big screen without that character.
The Holidays are a wonderful time of the year...even if they tend to start earlier and earlier each year. However, at least I did get a chance to get Thanksgiving out of the way before I got around to getting into Christmas.
As it gets deeper into the Holiday season, you might have felt the urge to participate in a few holiday festivities. Well, of course the "What's Happening Man" delivers once again. From shopping to helping the needy to downright partying until the break of dawn, I got you covered for your Holiday activities.
It's been nine months since pop music superstar Whitney Houston passed away, but her legacy continues to live on via television musical tributes, a recently released Greatest Hits compilation, the DVD release of her final film work, "Sparkle," and a critically panned reality show starring her family members.
"These projects are just some of the things that are a continuation of her legacy," said her sister-in-law/manager, Pat Houston. "They're showing Whitney in a very beautiful light. For the past 10 years or more, it has been very turbulent with the media and her personal life."
Chef Bryant Terry has focused the last 10 years of his career on food justice activism. And the first step toward food justice, he says, is to empower people to cook at home and share meals with family and friends. Through his efforts, Terry works to create a healthy, just, and sustainable food system.
His books are evidence. His most recent project, The Inspired Vegan: Seasonal Ingredients, Creative Recipes, Mouthwatering Menus, showcases recipes and cooking tips using whole, fresh, seasonal ingredients — complete with a focus on nutrition.
Kam Williams: Hi Soledad, thanks for another interview.
Soledad O'Brien: Thank you, Kam.
KW: Let's talk about your upcoming special. Where did you come up with the idea for Who Is Black in America?
SO: We were thinking about universal themes for "Black in America" that really touch people, that really matter to people, and one of the themes that we kept coming up with was colorism, discrimination based on skin tone. It was fascinating to hear the conversations that were happening between people who were light-skinned, people who were dark-skinned, and people somewhere in between. Just the hurt, the pain and anger on all sides was very interesting.
It's that time of year again and a community favorite has returned for another holiday season. "If Scrooge Was a Brother" is now playing at the Hattiloo Theatre through Dec. 23.
Written by Hattiloo Theatre founder and director Ekundayo Bandele, "If Scrooge Was a Brother" is an urban spin of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". The musical tells the story of Eb Scroo's ideological, ethical and emotional transformation after the supernatural visitations of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come.
