Jay Pharoah Follows His Dreams As He Stars Alongside Katt Williams, Keke Palmer And DC Youngfly In “2 Minutes Of Fame”

Review by Richard Caldwell
Rating: 4/5

What would you do to become the next big star? How far are you willing to go? What motivates you to follow your dreams? Is it friends, family or the love of the art? All these questions are answered in Liongates and Laugh Out Loud’s latest film “2 Minutes of Fame”.

Jay Pharoah, Katt Williams and Deon Cole are amazing in this film. The laughs are plenty as the storyline builds itself. This film is a battle of two comedic giants. Showing the life disparities between up and coming social media talents and established industry stars. This film also features Keke Palmer, Jess Hilarious and DC Youngfly.

Overall, I enjoyed this film. The acting is good, but the comedic timing is flawless. It’s hard for viewers not to enjoy the entertainment provided throughout this film. “2 Minutes of Fame” is a story meant to be told in 2020. Feel free to give it a watch with your friends and family.

Gabriel Sousa, Judy Geeson (“Mad About You”) And Traci Lords To Star In New Dark Comedy “Waking Up Dead,” Filming To Begin This July

Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired Worldwide rights to award-winning writer/director Terracino’s (“Elliot Loves”) latest feature, “Waking Up Dead.” Starring Gabriel Sousa (“Veronica Mars”, “Dollface”), Judy Geeson (“To Sir, With Love,” “Mad About You”), and Traci Lords (“Cry-Baby,” “Melrose Place,” “The Eastsiders”), “Waking Up Dead” is currently in pre-production, with filming set to begin in early July.

“If the industry is going to reopen for production, lower budgeted projects are going to have to lead the way,” said Terracino. “Accordingly, I think we may be the first film in cinema history to feature intimate love scenes with face masks, latex gloves and 409!”

A very uncomfortable comedy about suicide, assholes and a heartless Hollywood agent, “Waking Up Dead” focuses on Gabriel Sousa as hard-partying, self-absorbed Danny Maldonado, a once-promising Hollywood actor (his claim to fame was his guest arc as a narcoleptic rapist on “SVU”) whose life and career have hit rock bottom. But when he’s called in to audition for the lead role in the hottest new pilot in Hollywood, Danny sees it as his shot at redemption. Judy Geeson, in her first major screen role in years, co-stars as Lila, the former actress turned real estate agent who senses that Danny is spinning out of control and tries to intervene. Finally, Tracie Lords plays Phyllis, Danny’s caustic grade-B agent who drops by to explain to Danny just why there are so many assholes in the world.

Jason Caceres (“Magic City,” “Criminal Minds,”) plays Eddy, Danny’s long-suffering ex-boyfriend. Angelic Zambrana (“Precious,” “Bull”) appears as Danny’s sister, Sabrina, desperate to get Danny to reconnect with their dying mother before it’s too late. Makeda Declet (“House of Payne,” “Being Mary Jane,” “Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens”) plays Raven, former nightlife party girl turned Instagram self-help guru.

Rounding out the cast is fashion model Nelson Arrieta, Jr. making his feature film debut as Antonio, Danny’s best friend, while newcomers Antonio Ardolino and Bryce Morton appear as Anthony, a former conquest whom Danny can’t quite remember, and Carlos, an internet hookup whom Danny thoughtlessly tosses out the door before he can even put his clothes back on, respectively.

Sousa is repped by Firestarter Entertainment. Zambrana is with Vanguard Management and Buchwald. Declet is with Luber Roklin and Abrams Artists. Geeson and Lords are both repped by Chris Roe at Chris Roe Management. Caceres is with DSA Agency and Discovery Management. Arrieta, jr is with HRI Talent and Luber Roklin.

“Waking Up Dead” is written and will be directed by Terracino, whose prior feature “Elliot Loves” played Outfest and over 75 other festivals worldwide and was picked by HBO and HBO Latino for exclusive cable and streaming. His short, “My Polish Waiter,” played Sundance and New Directors/New Films.

Jupiter J. Makins, Patricia Mckenzie, Joe Bohn, Emmi Grullon and Terracino produce. The film was cast by Barden/Schnee (“The Help,” “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Dallas Buyers Club”). Rich Wolff serves as executive producer. His company, Breaking Glass Pictures, will be distributing theatrically.

“It is an honor to be producing with Terracino as I was a huge fan of ‘Elliot Loves,’ ” said Wolff. “I’m certain ‘Waking Up Dead’ will be the sexy Latino sleeper hit of 2021!”
