OK, so the good news is Larenz Tate is back. The potentially bad news is he’s back in a BET original move titled “Gun Hill.”
The film is one of BET’s many new original programs and features Larenz as twin brothers—Trane and Bird—on opposite sides of the law. The full synopsis says:
For the adults who go to the movies mostly on premiere weekends, this original film with beloved leading man Larenz Tate is sure to satisfy their fresh tastes. From the executive producers of New York Undercover [another plus], this high-powered cop drama is about identical twins on opposite sides of life: Trane, a cop, and Bird, a con. On one fateful night, Trane is killed. Bird assumes his identity and begins his own search for redemption. Set in the mean streets of New York, this smart, gritty two-hour movie event features an ensemble cast of characters operating on all sides of the law, where no one is quite what they seem.
The film also stars Michael Aronov, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back,” “Haitian Nights”), Tawny Cypress (“Heroes,” “Rescue Me”) and Aisha Hinds (“True Blood,” “Hawthorne”); and is directed by Reggie “Rock” Bythewood of Biker Boyz.
Most of us could probably care less about the focus of the movie we’re just happy to see if Larenz still has that “Love Jones” swexiness we’ve been missing, but the plot doesn’t sound half bad either. Production has reportedly already begun but there’s no word on when this film will hit our small screens. You can be sure we’ll keep you posted.
Are you excited to see Larenz Tate in this new movie?

If it weren’t for “True Blood” and “Entourage,” summer T.V.-watching would be unbearable. Well, aside from “Bridezilla.” Did you see the one where the future sister-in-law beat up the bride on her wedding day just hours before she had to walk down the aisle? Crazy! But anyway, now that fall is upon us, we have a few more options and surprisingly quite a few sun-kissed skin tones will be gracing our flat screens. Here are a few shows I plan on watching.

In this new sci-fi series, Blair Underwood (Heeeeeeey Blair!) plays Cuban American President Elias Martinez who has the unfortunate job of trying to figure out what the heck happened and what is happening. People vanished into thin air some time ago and while some folks in the government seem to know what’s going on, the president is on a need-to-know basis. Strange things are happening. One Joe Schmoe named Sean Walker (Jason Ritter) has stumbled upon the truth and that might not end well for him. Conspiracy theories, sci-fi twists and my soulmate…I mean Blair Underwood? Sounds like a fun weekly escape. Seems like a show that could jump the shark too though. Hopefully, they’ll keep the storylines at least plausible or balance the crazy stuff with funny lines and solid acting.
