Romeo Miller, son of legendary music mogul Master P, has been added to the cast of an upcoming wedding comedy called “Jump The Broom,” alongside actress Angela Bassett (who was also just added to the cast), soap star Renee Goldsberry, and Brandon DeShazer, among others.
The Salim Akil-directed film will see Romeo playng the co-lead role of Sebastion, a senior at Yale who meets meets Shonda (played by Tasha Smith) and romantic sparks fly.
The film follows the story of two black families with very different socio-economic backgrounds that clash during a weekend wedding on Martha’s Vineyard.
Bassett will play the role of Sabrina’s (played by Paula Patton) mother, an heiress and huge figure among the Washington elite. Romeo is Sabrina’s cousin in the film.
Production is set to begin soon in Nova Scotia.
Bassett just completed filming for the upcoming comic adaptation “Green Lantern,” and also just recently begun casting for her directorial debut — a film entitled “United States.”
Romeo Miller recently starred in a horror film “Pig People”, and is best known for starring in the self-titled #1 Nickelodeon series “Romeo” from 2004 to 2006. His film credits also include “Honey”. In recent years, he has been spending his time as a student-athlete at USC, playing Varsity basketball and studying in film.
“Romeo is a dedicated actor, he’s poise and charming. He has the potential to be Hollywood’s next leading man,” said Tracey Edmonds of the young star.
At press time, the expected release date of the film was unknown.
