There were a ton of teen movies at the time that I passed on that were not committed to getting it right. The reason why I even took the table read of “Cheer Fever” [”Bring It On”] was because the cheerleading movie I wanted about bank robbing [“Sugar and Spice”] – they didn’t want to go black on any of the characters. So it’s interesting, the group that didn’t want to commit to diversity didn’t seem to do well and the movie that was about righting the wrongs did well, and that included diversity. I remember at the table read my character being a combination of Foxy Brown and about eight other Blaxploitation characters sort of rolled into a cheer-lawyer-defender type person.


Rapture, a city where the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small! And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.

Another one because it’s fun

There’s a Rumor going about of Alolan Forms, three of which are the Kanto Fossils that never went Extinct

Consider: Ropen Aerodactyl

By some crazy stroke of luck one Clear Alolan Night, you may have the once-in-a-lifetime pleasure to spot ghastly blue lights streaking across the sky. The Alolan Aerodactyl is still a very mysterious Pokemon to Scientists all over the World. Due to the fact that none of the eyewitness descriptions match those of the common revived Aerodactyl, some scientists believe it to be a species of Aerodactyl that never went Extinct, hiding out in the remote Jungles of Alola for Millions of years. Other scientists however aren’t fully convinced it’s even real, as no one’s been able to catch one yet.
