Caribbean Born Actress For Netflix Series

Caribbean born actress, Garcelle Beauvais, (Spider
Man: Homecoming) is set for a recurring role opposite Dennis Quaid on Netflix’s
multi-camera comedy series ‘Merry Happy Whatever.’ The series, written by
Cawley and directed by Pam Fryman, features Quaid played by Don Quinn, a
strong-willed patriarch who must balance the demands of his complicated family
with the stress of the Christmas season when his youngest daughter comes home
for the holidays with a new boyfriend. Beauvais plays Nancy, a warm and good-humored
no-nonsense nurse who treats Don (Quaid) and Matt (Brent Morin) when they
arrive at urgent care. It seems Don may have a crush on Nancy though he denies
it vehemently.

Former Turks & Caicos Premier Gets
Dragged Into Nicole Murphy Scandal

The former wife of Eddie Murphy, Nicole Murphy, got
into hot water this week, after photos of her kissing the married Antoine Fuqua
emerged. However, former Turks & Caicos first lady, Lisa Raye McCoy, now
claims Murphy also kissed her husband, dragging the former TCI premier Michael
Misick unwittingly into the drama. 

McCoy claimed on TMZ that it may be a habit of
Nicole Murphy saying she confronted her previously about her alleged affair
with her ex Michael Misick.

 “She
messed around with my husband,” McCoy told TMZ. Here’s the thing, we’ve
all done something that we regret. We’ve all made mistakes and we all have to
learn from that. But when you start doing it and being messy enough to do it
amongst family, how does a ‘family kiss’ turn into an apology?”

Caribbean Roots Actress In Apple TV’s
‘The Banker’

Caribbean roots actress Nia Long is among the top
acts slated for ‘The Banker,’ which will be released by Apple on the company’s
upcoming Apple TV+. The story follows two African American entrepreneurs,
Bernard Garrett, played by actor Anthony Mackie, and Joe Morris, played by
Samuel Jackson, who spent the 1950s trying to circumvent racial limitations by
recruiting a working class white guy named Matt Steiner (Hoult) and training
him to pose as the head of their business. At the same time, they posed as a
janitor and a chauffeur. Bernard’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), plays a key role in
setting up the enterprise with the pair becoming two of the wealthiest and most
successful real estate owners in the country with Steiner as their front man.
Their success soon brings about unforeseen risk of exposure that threatens
everything.
