Saints and Sinners Vanessa Bell Calloway

Season two brings viewers back to Cypress, Georgia, the sleepy southern town outside Atlanta which has been rocked by the murders of a beloved pastor and the town’s Mayor. Death’s shadow continues to loom over the town’s epicenter, Greater Hope Baptist Church, as a dead body is discovered on its grounds, bringing up the church’s sordid past along with it. As concealed secrets claw their way to the surface, new alliances are formed and deceit, jealousy and compromising sexual affairs threaten to shatter lives and demolish the heart of the church and the town forever. As everyone’s dark past comes to light, the difference between being a saint or a sinner becomes more distorted than ever.

Season two cast includes:

  • Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless, Coming to America) as Lady Ella, the secretive beauty queen with a business mind who takes over as Mayor – and takes her sins to a whole new level.
  • Christian Keyes (Mistresses, Let’s Stay Together) returns as Levi, a Cypress prodigal son and former Wall Streeter now running Greater Hope after the Pastor’s murder.
  • Keith Robinson (Dreamgirls, This Christmas) portrays Miles Calloway, the former minister of music at Greater Hope and one-time R&B star whose cheating ways may destroy two families.
  • Clifton Powell (Ray, Murder in the First) is Rex Fisher, the ruthless local loan shark who found himself double-crossed and put behind bars in season one.
  • J.D. Williams (The Night Of, The Wire) as Jabari, Levi’s cousin who also worked for Rex – until a stunning power play put him on top.
  • Jasmine Burke (The Vampire Diaries, Army Wives) is Lady Ella’s daughter, Dr. Christie Johnson, whose insurance scam at her medical clinic is threatened to be exposed.
  • Demetria McKinney (House of Payne, House Wives of Atlanta) returns as Miles’s wife Tamara, who is fighting to save her marriage in the aftermath of Miles’ infidelity as the couple prepares for the arrival of their first child.
  • Tray Chaney (The Wire, Masterminds) plays Kendrick Murphy, the illegitimate son of Lady Ella and Rex who was raised quietly out of the public spotlight but will play a big role as this season unfolds.
  • Karlie Redd (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, Top Five) is Jabari’s wife Paige who has deep concerns about her husband breaking ranks with Rex.
  • Afemo Omilami (Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Forrest Gump) plays Detective St. Charles whose plate is full with all the crime in Cypress.

During its record-breaking first season, Saints & Sinners became Bounce’s most-watched programming in the network’s history. The series was so successful, Bounce renewed the show for year two ahead of the inaugural season’s thrilling finale.

T.I. throw shade at Travis Scott decision to perform at the Super Bowl

Published

on

T.I. believes Travis Scott‘s decision to do the Super Bowl halftime show is selfish … and he hopes the rapper makes up for it by being selfLESS down the road.

Scott’s taken all sorts of heat for his decision to perform at Super Bowl 53 from people like Common and Nick Cannon who have been critical of the NFL for the way it’s treated Colin Kaepernick.

In fact, Cannon told Raquel Harper on BET’s “Raq Rants” that Scott’s move clearly shows he doesn’t care for black culture.

So, how does T.I. feel about it? See if you can read between the lines …

“I think every man have an opportunity … he can make a decision for himself, or he could be selfless. And, nobody can tell someone when to be selfless.”

“That’s every man’s right to choose that moment for themselves. So, if this ain’t something that he wanted to be selfless about, hopefully in the future we’ll see other moments where he will. You dig?”

Not everyone is upset with Scott — rap legend Nelly told us just a few days ago the outrage over the halftime show is stupid — and said he’d “probably do it” if asked.

Scott and Maroon 5 will take the stage Feb. 3 … with others like Big Boi from Outkast and Gladys Knight set to grab the mic throughout the day as well.
