Former “House of Lies” actress Nia Long was on hand to promote her series on the network, the TV remake of “Uncle Buck.” The new version will star funnyman Mike Epps as “Uncle Buck”, and out -of-work man who moves in with his brother and sister-in-law to help keep an eye on their kids after the family’s nanny quits. Nia and Mike will star alongside James Lesure, Iman Benson, Sayeed Shahidi, and Aalyrah Caldwell.
Kerry Washington, who stars in the network’s hit series “Scandal”, was on hand to celebrate the highly-rated season 4 finale, which aired last week.
During a recent interview with PEOPLE, Kerry’s co-star Scott Foley opened up about filming sex scenes with Kerry, who gave birth to daughter Isabelle Amarachi Asomugha, last year. “One of the craziest things while filming was trying to have a sex scene when Kerry was seven months pregnant. The director, this fantastic French director, Jeannot Szwarc, kept saying, ‘Just get on top of her, and I’m going to shoot it.’ And I was like, ‘No, no, no I can’t – she’s got a baby in there!’
Viola Davis came out to support “HTGAWM”, one of the network’s greatest success stories.
In addition to her work on “HTGAWM”, Viola has been tapped to star in an HBO miniseries about abolitionist Harriet Tubman.
The miniseries will be based on “Bound For The Promise Land” by historian Kate Clifford Larson.
