According to Humormillmag.com, Jill Scott and rapper J. Cole are the latest additions to the David E. Talbert‘s romantic comedy, ‘Baggage Claim.’
They will join a cast that already includes Paula Patton, Derek Luke, Octavia Spencer, Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Tia Mowry and Djimon Hounsou.
The film is based on Talbert’s best-selling debut novel about a flight attendant with thirty days and thirty thousand miles to find a husband.
With her mother having just tied the knot for a record-breaking fourth time and her baby sister, Sheree, rushing to jump the broom, five-time maid of honor Montana is dangerously close to becoming not only the oldest, but the only woman in her entire family never to be married.
Having convinced herself that there’s no way in heaven or hell she’s showing up at her sister’s Christmas Eve engagement party without a prospect of her own, Montana concocts her wildest and most romantically ridiculous plan yet: a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile trek in search of a husband.
Will it be Damon Diesel, a young hip-hop producer whose motto is “Making the green scream and the dolla holla!”? Or will she win over the Reverend Curtis P. Merewether, pastor and founder of Greater House of Deliverance, Tabernacle of Praise, Worship, and Miracles? Of course Langston Jefferson Battle III, superattorney turned city councilman, needs a wife now that his sights are set on the United States Congress. Or perhaps her lifelong mate is Quinton Jamison, a multimillionaire textile guru twenty years her senior. Only time — or the lack of it — will tell.
Scott, who also starred in Tyler Perry’s ‘Why Did I Get Married? and its sequel ‘Why I Get Married Too?,’ will next be seen opposite Queen Latifah and Phylicia Rashad in the all-black remake of 1989′s ‘Steel Magnolias’ that will air on Lifetime TV.
J. Cole, whose given name is Jermaine Lamar Cole, is a German-born American hip hop recording artist and record producer from Fayetteville, North Carolina. He became the first artist to sign to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. He will be making his film debut.
