Condola Rashad to co-star in Upcoming Fox Series “Hieroglyph”

Condola Rashad who has been working her way up the film industry’s ladder will co-star in Fox’s drama series “Hieroglyph.”

Set in ancient Egypt, the show follows a notorious thief who leaves prison and goes to serve the Pharoah where his half-sister Nefertari’s (Rashad) unusual beauty is intimidating and a lethal weapon to all who approach.

Her success is no surprise as she is the daughter of Phylicia Rashad where both mother and daughter starred in the TV film “Steel Magnolias” (2012) on Lifetime.  Similar to her mother, she is theatrically trained.

A two-time Tony Award nominee of theatre productions “Stick Fly” and “The Trip to Bountiful” recently co-starred in the Broadway revival of “Romeo and Juliet” interracial adaption opposite Orlando Bloom.

The show is scheduled for next season.                           

Quvenzhané Wallis plays orphan in “Annie”

Off the hills of her breakout role in “Beasts of the Southern Wild” last year, the Oscar-nominated Quvenzhané Wallis stars in Annie, the third film adaptation following the theatrical film in 1982. The ten year old is filling some big shoes starring in one A-list film after another.

Although she is an orphan in the movie, she is nothing of the sort in real life as she stands to receive a salary of $1.5 million from the film.

“Wallis is scheduled to receive a base salary of $750,000 and a bonus of $750,000 if the movie performs well,” TMZ reports.

Jamie Foxx plays wealthy politician Benjamin Stacks frequently known as “Daddy Warbucks” alongside Cameron Diaz who stars as Miss Hannigan, a cruel owner of the orphanage where Annie resides.

The film is set for release December 19.

Michael B. Jordan hits Theatres later this month in “That Awkward Moment”

Michael B. Jordan stars as Mikey who is best friends with Daniel (Miles Teller) and Jason (Zac Efron) in “That Awkward Moment.” The three men journey through life and relationships while struggling to find that perfect moment in array of awkward moments in the ins and outs of dating.  

We can look for a trio of sensitive men who find themselves in questionable moments, wondering where they stand with women.

The movie shows a closer look at how men deal with their emotions of dating which is an alternative to the traditional romantic lovey-dovey “chick flicks.”

Jordan stars in a comedy after playing the true life story of Oscar Grant in drama “Fruitvale Station” (2013).

Catch “That Awkward Moment” in theaters January 31.
