Things got heated when the sexy cast of Chocolate City stripped off their shirts during the film’s NYC premiere last night. Peep the carpet and shirtless flicks inside….
The cast of the upcoming stripper flick Chocolate City gathered at the AMC Empire 25 theater in NYC for a screening of the film last night. Vivica A. Fox, who plays a single mother of two sons, hit the carpet in a royal blue textured bodycon with fringe detail paired with orange peep-toe pumps for a pop of color.
In a recent interview with BlackFilm.com, she revealed what we can expect from her character saying,
“The story of Chocolate City is that I play the mom to two men, played by DeRay Davis and Robert Ri’chard, who play Michael. I’m a single mother and we’re going through some hard times. Michael is my precious child. He’s working and has a scholarship to go to college. While the brothers are at a strip club, Michael is discovered by the club manager played by Michael Kai White, who tells him he can make some quick easy money by dancing. So Michael gets to amateur night and makes a whole bunch of money. My character thinks that he’s getting on the wrong side of the tracks when he comes home with all this cash.”
“Then the story gets into what’s it like for Michael being the new kid at the club and Tyson plays a veteran dancer at the club. It’s a little jaded and it takes you on this really wonderful fun journey of watching this story play out.”
Sexy co-star Darrin Henson was also in the building. Looking good.
Robert Ri’chard leads the cast playing Michael, a struggling college student who is discovered and prepped to enter the world of adult exotic dancing. Remember there were rumors going around that he and Aunt Viv were dating? We weren’t totally sold that the two were really in a relationship, but Aunt Viv does speak very highly of him. She told BlackFilm,
“Playing his mom, I got there the last four days of filming and we had very intense scenes because my character is worried about what Michael hasn’t been telling her. I loved working with him. I think Robert Ri’chard is going to be the next heartrobe. This film is going to do wonderful things for not only Robert but Tyson, Darren and others. Finally, I feel that they are not threatened by the presence and the power of African Americans being the lead actors in movies and television shows. It’s about time.”
Power 105 radio host Angela Yee was tapped to host.
“Blood, Sweat and Heels” star Geneva Thomas was also in the mix to get her chocolate fix.
After the carpet….
