The former “Community” star could find himself in a galaxy far away if the online rumors are true.  Glover is rumored to be the top contender up for for the role Han Solo’s best bud in the upcoming “Han Solo: A Star Wars Story”.  The role of Calrissian was played in the original trilogy by Billy Dee Williams.  Glover may be on a roll having just landed a role in  another big bank movie “Spider-Man:Homecoming”.

tns_heroLarry Wilmore’s “Nightly Show” Canceled  Comedy Central tried something new with its talk show format by adding Black males to host two of its top rated news format shows.  When both Stephen Colbert(The Colbert Report) and Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) decided to step down as hosts, Trevor Noah and Wilmore were awarded the top spots.   Both shows bring the uncut and unadulterated Black voice to the late night talk show/news arena.  Comedy Central says after a year and a half on air,  the show simply didn’t connect with the audience.  Wilmore talked about the “surprise” termination of his show in a statement to the press; “I’m also saddened and surprised we won’t be covering this crazy election or ‘The Unblackening’ as we’ve coined it. And keeping it 100, I guess I hadn’t counted on ‘The Unblackening’ happening to my time slot as well.” Wilmore has worked at Comedy Central for the past decade starting out as the “Senior Black Correspondent” on “The Daily Show”.  “The Nightly Show” will air its final episode Thursday night August 18 at 11:30 on Comedy Central.

For this week in Black Hollywood, that’s a wrap!

    Nice post. I study one thing more challenging on totally different blogs everyday. It’s going to at all times be stimulating to read content material from other writers and apply a little something from their store. I’d want to use some with the content material on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
