Ravens LB Terrell Suggs Enlisted Jackee Harry From ‘227’ To Star In New Movie He Wrote
Wait. What? But apparently, it is true: the bruising Baltimore Ravens linebacker has been making quite a splash in Hollyweird: a film he produced with his production company, Team Sizzle Worldwide, and co-wrote as well, entitled When Beautiful People Do Ugly Things, was actually screened at the Cannes Film Festival this past spring. And up next is a new film he wrote, The Coalition, but he has brought in some legitimate LaLa Land heavy hitters to star in this one: Tyler Perry’s House of Payne‘s Denyce Lawton and even better, none other than Jackee Harry (simply known as Jackée), who is perhaps best known for playing the sexy and sultry (and annoyingly voiced) Sandra Clark on the classic Marla Gibbs vehicle, 227. Or maybe you are familiar with her from this Family Guy bit. Either way, she’s a big star.
So there you have it. Terrell Suggs is making the big time in Hollywood. There really isn’t much to add to this one, nor is profoundly interesting. I mean, good for Terrell Suggs and all, but really, this is all about Jackée, and opening up a whole new audience to her considerable talents. As it should be.
UPDATE: Here’s the trailer for Suggs’ new film (via Ball Junkie):
