We just discovered that comedic actor Affion Crockett has just joined the cast of the new David E. Talbert film Baggage Claim! Crockett joins other cast members Paula Patton, Derek Luke, and Octavia Spencer as leads with Jill Scott, hip hop recording artist J Cole, Rickey Smiley, Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Tia Mowry and Djimon Hounsou. We hear that his scenes were shot this past weekend, as he played a T.S.A. Security guard who takes his job way too seriously.
If you are not familiar with the book, here is the synopsis;
Pledging to keep herself from being the oldest and the only woman in her entire family never to wed, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé. Whom will she choose? Damon Diesel, a P. Diddy wannabe; Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles; pompous attorney-turned-councilman Langston Jefferson Battle III; or Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire who’s twenty years her senior?
As of this role we know that Patton has the role of Montana and no word yet on the other roles. We do think that London and Mowry will be playing her sisters in the films.
More details to follow soon!
