Are You Ready? Mike Epps Joins “Being Mary Jane”

April 1, 2014  |  

Mike Epps is serious about his acting roles these days. Not to say he didn’t take his comedic work seriously, making people laugh is no easy task. So maybe we should say he’s expanding his portfolio. I’ve said it before but I first noticed Mike Epps’ acting chops in Sparkle. He was literally one of thee best actors in the film.

Most recently, he appeared in the psychological thriller Repentance alongside Forest Whitaker, Sanaa Lathan and Anthony Mackie. And he certainly holds his own.

Now, according to Deadline, Epps is joining the cast of BET’s hit show “Being Mary Jane.”

Deadline reports that Epps will have a reoccurring role on the second season. Epps is set to “play family man Chris Warren, a husband and father in a great marriage who Mary Jane begins to envy.” 

Ooo lawd. We hope Mary Jane doesn’t try to sleep with another woman’s’ husband. But this does seem like an interesting new storyline. Hopefully, Epps’ character imparts wisdom instead of getting sucked into her dark world.

Will you be watching the second season of Mary Jane? How do you think Epps will do on this show?
