Is db woodside and golden brooks still dating
Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Robert O’hara and featuring an all-star cast including Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”), two-time Emmy® Award-winner Keith David (Requiem for a Dream), DB Woodside (“24”), and Darrin Dewitt Henson (Stomp the Yard), The Inheritance delivers powerful performances, stunning imagery and heart-stopping twists that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
SRP is .97 for the Blu-ray™ and .97 for the DVD. For cousins Karen (Brooks), Henry (Woodside), Tyrone (Henson), Lily (Rochelle Aytes, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion) and Simpson (Shawn Michael Howard, Cable Guy), the truth about their ancestral fortune has been buried for centuries, dating back to the time of slavery.
I just think that TV, of course, just looking at it from a basic point of view, it’s definitely more lucrative.
You’re on a show and if the pilot is picked up there’s the hope that it’ll run for a very long time and then it goes into syndication. Then I just think that there aren’t a lot of films that are being made right now that are incorporating African American women. We have Tyler Perry which is a wonderful venue for people of color, but there needs to be more. You just kind of wait around and you wait to see if they’re going to go African American if they’re not sure or if they’re going to go Latin or if they’re going to go Indian or if they’re going to go Asian. I’m actually going to do the ‘Mo’Nique Show.’ I did my pre-interview and they were asking about a ‘Girlfriends’ reunion or a ‘Girlfriends’ movie or are they going to petition to bring ‘Girlfriends’ back like they did with ‘The Game’ on BET. It would be nice to just kind of sit and catch up with the girls. I think that all of us are kind of doing our own thing and trying to create other opportunities for ourselves.
So, that in of itself was a whole new layer to the horror. She’s very up tight which is great for me to play, coming from ‘Girlfriends’ and playing a very open minded and sassy, if you will. So playing this character, she’s very rigid, but she was the one out of all the play cousins and friends that was actually there for the right reasons, to learn something from the elders which is what we call our uncles and the elder generation that are supposed to be teaching us about our past lineage.
We’ve seen so many of them and the way that they objectify woman and all of that.
For cousins Karen (Brooks), Henry (Woodside), Tyrone (Henson), Lily (Rochelle Aytes) and Simpson (Shawn Michael Howard), the truth about their ancestral fortune has been buried for centuries, dating back to the time of slavery. But you know what, it was definitely a challenge and I’d never done anything that involved any kind of fake blood or anything like that.
Now, an invitation from the family’s commanding and enigmatic patriarch (David), along with a series of supernatural events and mysterious disappearances at a long-awaited family reunion, forces this once tight-knit family to discover how far they’re willing to go to obtain their precious inheritance. But we had a ball and we had such a great team of people and the producer, Effie Brown, and Robert O’Hara who’s a great director.
I really enjoyed that kind of proactive approach to directing. Sometimes you get into a situation and it’s the director’s vision and that’s it, but I really appreciated his sort of incorporation and teamwork in creating the vision. I was talking to my agents and managers about that recently.
It’s been years since ‘Girlfriends’ has been off air, but that a lot of the actresses from that show are going back into TV for work since there’s not a lot of film roles. There are a lot of actresses, a lot of my peers going into TV.
