Just days before the opening of one of this yearâ€™s most anticipated films, JUMPING THE BROOM cast members Laz Alonso, Tasha Smith, Mike Epps and Pooch Hall hosted an intimate press dinner at New Yorkâ€™s PRANNA Restaurant.
As guests noshed on lettuce wraps and hanger steak, the talented actors addressed everything from typecasting â€“ (â€œThe characters I play may be strong women, but they arenâ€™t the same,â€ said Smith) â€“ to the brilliance of director Salim Akil. â€œIn the next five years, Salim will be one of the top directors in Hollywood,â€ praised Alonso. â€œNot just a top black director, but one of the best in the businessâ€¦period!â€
â€œThis is a movie about choices. You choose how your life should go,â€
said Hall, who revealed that heâ€™s married and had already â€˜jumped the broom.â€™ â€œ

Michelle Obama has made it her option to get Americaâ€™s youth moving and on the path to a healthy fit lifestyle. She has since committed her time to showing young people that exercise and living healthy can be a fun and exciting. Early today the first lady made a stop at Deal Middle School in Washington D.C where she showed the preteens that exercising and moving can be as simple as taking a few minutes to crank the â€œDougie.â€
The first lady has a lot to dance about with the death of Osama Bin Laden one of the biggest terrorist threats to America confirmed to be deceased through the hard work of our U.S military and our commander in Chief. Hopefully we all get behind Michelle Obama and show our support by making healthy choices. She definitely knows how to move, YOU BETTER WURK IT GIRL!
