‘Supremacy’

Wow, I haven’t seen Lela Rochon in a film for a minute. She’s starring in a new indie film with Danny Glover called ‘Supremacy.’

“Based on a true story. A paroled white supremacist has just killed a cop, and takes a black family hostage over a long night of terror as authorities cordon off the neighborhood where he and his lady accomplice are laying low. Mount plays the role of Sobecki, a heavily tattooed maximum security prison inmate who’s the head of the Aryan Brotherhood and oversees his criminal empire from behind bars. He’s the kidnapper’s leader and not thrilled when he learns of his charge’s screw-up when he’s called in by authorities to negotiate with the kidnapper.” —http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/danny-glover-evan-ross-lela-rochon-are-a-family-held-hostage-by-a-white-supremacist-in-trailer-for-supremacy

Hmm…sounds interesting. I don’t recall this story being in the news. I guess I missed it. Then again, the poster reads “inspired” by a true story, so probably anything will go. Please don’t let there be a loveable/misunderstood white supremacist character, or else I am going to vomit.

Any who, the film debuts at the Los Angeles Film Festival next month. I searched, but I couldn’t find any information about if/when it will be released in theaters.

Randomness: Theresa Randle

You know how you have random thoughts? Like, you’re strolling in the Target and out of the blue you wonder,“whatever happened to all those kids from Goonies?” This happened to me the other day. Theresa Randle just popped into my head:

Randle was a known black actress in the 90’s. She wasn’t as popular as a Nia Long, but you recognized her when you saw her. And like Long (and also an unappreciated Lela Rochon), they were considered the black babe actresses, of the time. Randle was also a good actress. She gave a captivating performance in the movie on Natalie Cole’s life. I know she also had a lead role in Spike Lee’s “Girl 6,” but I’ve never watched the film.  She was a charismatic actress, though. It’s a shame, she has fallen to the wayside, like so many black actresses do in blonde obsessed Hollywood.
