April 13, 2010

Idris Elba and Gbenga Akinnagbe are two actors from the hit critically-acclaimed HBO series “The Wire” who made it big in Hollywood with not one but two strong acting roles in two upcoming films. Did I mention that these two are both of African descent and are very attractive??? (Idris reps Sierre Leone and Ghana while Gbenga’s Naija!)

A tale of double cross and revenge, centered upon the members of an elite U.S. Special Forces unit sent into the Bolivian jungle on a search and destroy mission. The team-Clay, Jensen, Roque, Pooch and Cougar -find themselves the target of a lethal betrayal instigated from inside by a powerful enemy known only as Max. Presumed dead, the group makes plans to even the score when they’re joined by the mysterious Aisha, a beautiful operative with her own agenda. Working together, they must remain deep undercover while tracking the heavily-guarded Max, a ruthless man bent on embroiling the world in a new high-tech global war. imdb

Blacktree also interviewed the Losers cast and posted it up on YouTube. Check out both clips below…

Gbenga portrayed bad boy Lorenzo Mack in the new Bow Wow romantic comedy film, The Lottery Ticket, opposite T-Pain, Teairra Mari, Ice Cube, Naturi Naughton, and Brandon T. Jackson.

Kevin Carson (Bow Wow), 18-year-old man living in the projects, wins $370 million in a nationwide lottery. When his opportunistic neighbors discover he has the winning ticket in his possession, Kevin must survive their greedy and sometimes even threatening actions over a three-day holiday weekend before he can claim his prize. imdb
