Malik Yoba: 'My Comments About Co-star's Sexuality Were Misquoted'


Malik Yoba Jussie Smollett

Actor Malik Yoba has hit back at reports suggesting he 'outed' Empire co-star Jussie Smollett in an online interview, insisting his comments have been misquoted.

During a chat with BlackFilm.com last month (Feb15), Malik appeared to openly discuss Smollett's sexuality, but he now insists he was talking about the actor's character on their hit new Lee Daniels Tv drama.

Malik said, "I think that our show represents a huge opportunity to stay in the culture beyond entertainment value and there's an intrinsic nature if you have the gay factor, right? So, obviously, Lee is gay. That was an important storyline for him. I think it's important for people to see themselves. Even within the Black community.

And he's partnered with Law & Order writer Courtney Parker to bring the series back to the small screen.

He says, "The show has been in syndication since '98. A few weeks ago, a writer named Courtney Parker... sent me a pilot script that she wrote. I can't give up too much information but what she wrote was incredible."

Why Did I Get Married? Review


OK
The issue of matrimony is not a new one to Tyler Perry. Almost all of his efforts, both for the stage and screen, have focused on relationships growing, struggling, dissolving, or playing out their post-breakup end games. The decision to create a single overview on the subject seems unnecessary at best. Yet Perry is nothing if not knowledgeable, especially when it comes to his audience. He clearly understands that, even though he's offering the same old stories, they can't get enough of the way he tells them. For his film adaptation of the couples comedy Why Did I Get Married?, he may have altered the very purpose out of his otherwise amicable preaching.

Patricia (Janet Jackson) is a highly regarded and very famous psychiatrist. Her book about marriage has just won a very prestigious award. Still, a tragedy in her past has driven a wedge into her marriage to architect Gavin (Malik Yoba). Things aren't much better with said pals. Angela (Tasha Smith) is a loudmouth drunk constantly denigrating her struggling husband Marcus (Michael Jai White). Diane (Sharon Leal) is a driven attorney. Having just made partner, she can't find time for her young daughter, or depressed spouse (Perry). But the worst situation exists between Sheila (Jill Scott) and Mike (Richard T. Jones). He is constantly calling her fat. He's also cheating on her with best friend Trina (Denis Boutte). When the group gets together for their annual vacation, everyone is on edge. Soon, secrets will be revealed, leaving everyone wondering about the state of their relationship.

Cool Runnings Review


Good
Remember the second miracle on ice, the Jamaican bobsled team? Well after the international joke wore off (I seem to remember seeing a t-shirt or two during college) there was the movie Cool Runnings, which dramatizes the tumultuous road to the Olympics (which did everything in its power to keep the team out) and their thrilling last place finish. Of course, this isn't a movie about winning. It's about winning not being everything; it's almost the anti-sports movie. While the film is cute and charming, it isn't without its copious cliches. All in all, it's pretty much as expected.
