There’s just something about Kerry! Actress Kerry Washington has been a VIXEN fave for years. This Bronx, NY beauty screams style and grace on the red carpet and on the big screen her talent is undeniable. From Spike Lee’s She Hate Me to Save the Last Dance and For Colored Girls, we just can’t get enough of seeing Kerry Washington on the big screen! That’s why we’re excited that she will once again be gracing our presence in three projects that should definitely be on your must see list.
A Thousand Words
In this film Kerry plays Caroline McCall, the wife of Jack McCall (Eddie Murphy) a fast-talking literary agent whose life comes unglued after a magical Bodhi tree mysteriously appears in his backyard. Its appearance holds a valuable lesson on the consequences of every word we speak.
In this hot new ABC drama Kerry plays Olivia Pope, a former media relations consultant to the President who dedicates her life to protecting and defending the public images of our nation’s elite. After leaving the White House, Olivia opens her own firm, hoping to start a new chapter—both professionally and personally—but she can’t seem to completely cut ties with her past. Slowly it becomes apparent that her staff, who specialize in fixing the lives of other people, can’t quite fix the ones closest at hand— their own.
We The Peeples
Scheduled for an early 2013 release, We The Peeples is a comedic drama from producer Tyler Perry that follows what happens when a child psychologist (Craig Robinson) surprises his girlfriend, played by Kerry, by showing up at her political family’s annual get-together at their Sag Harbor vacation home only to find them desperately in need of therapy.
