We told you former E! News co-anchor Terrence J had something up his sleeve. He quit his television hosting gig to follow his other passions: Acting and Producing. Now, he’s gearing up to release his very first project as Producer, The Perfect Match.
Directed by Bille Woodruff (Addicted, Drumline A New Beat, Beauty Shop) and executive produced by Queen Latifah, the romantic comedy stars a slew of YBF celebs, inculding model/singer Cassie Ventura, About Last Night actress Paula Patton, former “The Game” starlet Lauren London, “Hit The Floor” actor Rob Riley (who’s also producing), “Zoe Ever After” actress and R&B singer Brandy,“Orange Is The New Black” star Dascha Polanco, “Bridesmaids” star Kali Hawk,“The Exes” star Donald Faison and rapper French Montana.
Yes, even French is flexing his acting chops.
A synopsis of the film is below:
Charlie (Terrence J) is a bachelor who’s convinced that relationships are dead even though his sister (Paula Patton), a therapist, tries to tell him otherwise. His best friends bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he’s bound to fall in love. An unconvinced Charlie takes the bet because he believes that he’s immune to love… until he crosses paths with the beautiful and mysterious Eva (Cassie Ventura). Charlie is sure that he will win the bet and prove his friends and sister wrong, so he rises to the occasion and takes on the challenge. Turning on his irresistible charm, Charlie coaxes Eva into a casual affair, but soon finds out that Eva has turned the tables on him. Unsure of what to think or how to feel, he finds himself trying to navigate in a foreign territory. Now, Charlie is left questioning whether he may actually want more than just a one-night stand.
