Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 5, 2010
Romeo Miller and Angela Bassett has joined the cast of Columbia’s upcoming wedding comedy “Jump the Broom.” Salim Akil is directing the ensemble comedy for Columbia. Romeo Miller has been cast in the co-lead role of “Sebastion” [a senior at Yale, athletic and gorgeous, he's Sabrina's, (Paula Patton) cousin, and when he meets Shonda (Tasha Smith) romantic sparks fly.]
The film follows the story of two black families with very different socioeconomic backgrounds that clash during a weekend wedding on Martha’s Vineyard. Bassett will play the role of Patton’s mother, an heiress and huge figure among the Washington elite, in the film. Miller will play Patton’s cousin in the film while Miller plays her love interest. Filming on the project is scheduled to begin soon in Nova Scotia.
Bassett just completed filming her role as Dr. Amanda Waller in Warner Bros. upcoming comic adaptation “Green Lantern.” She has also just recently begun casting for her directorial debut; a film entitled “United States.” That project will get underway in the fall.
Romeo Miller recently starred in a horror film “Pig People”. Romeo is best known for starring in the self-titled #1 Nickelodeon series ROMEO from 2004 – 2006. Romeo also co-starred in Universal’s feature film HONEY, he’s been named Top 5 Sexiest Men in the World, and has most recently spent his time as a student-athlete at USC playing Varsity basketball and studying in film. Tracey Edmonds says, “Romeo is a dedicated actor, he’s poise and charming. He has the potential to be Hollywood’s next leading man.”
