I recently had the opportunity to interview the homie Bobby V about his new film that’s coming to a small screen near you this weekend on BET. Bobby V is a veteran in the entertainment industry and he’s dipping his talented feet in the genre of film by starring in his first feature film: “Hollywood Hearts”.
Check out the details after the break.
The homie Bobby V was introduced to us in the 90’s as a dope member of R&B group Mista and over the past few years he’s made a name for himself as a prolific artist with tons of hits solo and with some of the biggest stars in R&B/HipHop/Pop Culture.
Bobby V is a graduate of Clark Atlanta University and a dominate figure in Atlanta’s music community. Bobby is jumping feet first into acting and he’s scored his very first feature film for BET: “Hollywood Hearts“. Bobby V leads a star studded cast in a complicated love story where he’s an entertainer balancing Hollywood and a real love life. The film is about an artist who is struggling with loyalty to the woman he loves and the love for his career and the lifestyle that comes with it. When asked if the role is an example of his personal experiences balancing love and Hollywood, Bobby had the following to say,
“Yes, the scenario depicted in “Hollywood Hearts” rings true in my personal experience. I try to keep it real on a daily basis and in the past I will be honest that I have had to pick between love and the trappings of success. The plot in “Hollywood Hearts” has a lot of amazing twists and turns that I have not personally experienced but the underlying principle about the challenge of prioritizing what’s important rings true for me personally!”
Bobby V shared candidly that the role might be about a R&B superstar and that many people will assume that he’s just being himself; when in fact he’s a lot different from the character he portrays in “Hollywood Hearts”. Bobby V had the following to say about his character and preparing for the film,
“I am very serious about acting. I have an amazing acting coach and I have been taking acting classes on a regular basis for the past year. I seriously had to study my lines and just because I share the same profession as the character I depict in “Hollywood Hearts” did not make it any easier to play this role.
My character in the film is very serious while I am a lot more laid back and fun in my personal life. It’s been a great experience taking on this role that evolved from a short film to a feature presentation for BET. I am definitely living out another part of my dream in the entertainment industry and using skills that I acquired from my Mass Communications degree from Clark Atlanta University!”
“Hollywood Hearts” is directed, written and executive produced by African-American visionaire Tangie B. Moore of Tier 2 Films. Since co-founding Tier 2 Films, Tangie has been able to ink severals deals and placements with Discovery Studios, WEtv, EOne, Sprite, BET Entertainment/Viacom & Samsung. Tangie had the following to say about “Hollywood Hearts”,
The film is very edgy, multi-layered, and it’s truly going to be an experience for viewers. I can’t wait for everyone to see “Hollywood Hearts” and I am so proud of Bobby V because he excelled in this role!
