Film Stars to Promote New Movie at FAMU

Pooch Hall has captured the hearts of women with his charming role as San Diego Sabers wide receiver, Derwin Davis. And Meagan Good’s salacious character has seduced the high-profile running back, Malik Wright, into a tempting affair on this season of BET’s “The Game.”

As the drama-packed season has come to an end, actors Meagan Good and Pooch Hall will discuss their newest project at Florida A&M. The duo will appear on “the Set” Thursday from 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. promoting their upcoming film “Jumping the Broom,” directed by Salim Akil.

The romantic comedy is about two families from different socio-economic backgrounds who clash during a weekend wedding at Martha’s Vineyard.

Although Hall and Good do not have leading roles in the highly publicized film, they had the opportunity to work alongside a talented cast that included Angela Bassett, Paula Patton, Laz Alonso and many more.

FAMU’s Office of Student Activities and Sony Tristar Pictures are sponsoring the promotional tour and will be distributing signed headshots of the stars on “the Set.”

FAMU alumna and junior publicist at 135th Street Agency, Vernika Moore, said the guests are making a free appearance because it is a promotional tour, so there is no cost associated with FAMU.

Moore hopes for a successful turnout at “the Set” on Thursday.

“I want this to be the biggest HBCU tour thus far,” Moore said. The stars appeared at two other HBCUs: Clark Atlanta University and North Carolina A&T. Laz Alonzo and Paula Patton are also appearing at Howard on the same day of the AMC screening in Tallahassee.

The movie opens in theaters May 6. Students will be able to see a special advanced screening of “Jumping the Broom” at AMC Tallahassee Mall 20 Wednesday at 8 p.m.

Hall and Good will make an appearance at the screening to introduce the film.
