The new Sparkle remake is already in rehearsals, and co-stars Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, and Jordin Sparks have been cast as the lead roles
Carmen, will play the role of “Sister.” (she better WORK this role!! Thats all I know.. )
Tika is set to play “Delores.” (hmmm they say she is the “IT GIRL”..I’ve seen a bit of her acting on Gossip Girl..she’s okay but I wont knock her craft.)
Jordin is the lead playing “Sparkle.” (hmmm im not sure about her acting ability)
Whitney Houston will play sparkle’s unimpressed mother
Derek Luke will play the role of “Stixx.”
Omari Hardwick will play “Levi”
I think they should have switched Derek Luke and Omari Hardrick chacters..Derek Luke seems like he would fit Levi better in my opinion.
Cee-Lo has been added as an opening act.
Mike Epps is scheduled to play the role of “Satin”.. Im curious to see him play out the gangsta role
R. Kelly signed on for the soundtrack.
What do you think about the cast? This should be interesting..Will you be watching?
