Today we discovered that two more folks have joined the cast of the new David E. Talbert film Baggage Claim; R&B singer Jill Scott and hip hop recording artist J Cole! According to our sources, these two will join the cast for the film that starts shooting in two weeks!
Jill Scott and J Cole join other cast members Paula Patton, Derek Luke, and Octavia Spencer as leads with Rickey Smiley, Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Tia Mowry and Djimon Hounsou all recently on board. We are still waiting on the official word from the studio on who has joined the cast, but this is what we have heard so far.
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!
