Denzel Washington, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Ashanti & More At The Boys And Girls Club Photo Call + Angela Bassett Replacing Halle Berry On Broadway


 

Denzel Washington, Ashanti, Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington and Ne-Yo were among the celebs who participated in a Boys And Girls Club photo call for its numerous celebrity spokepeople.  See the picks inside and find out about Angela Bassett replacing Halle Berry on Broadway.

The Boy and Girls CLub in Los Angeles recently held a photo call for its celebrity spokepeople which included Denzel Washington, Ashanti, Ne-Yo, Mario Lopez, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Smokey Robinson and Jennifer Lopez. 

Jennifer Lopez (who grew up performing at the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx) was dressed in head-to-toe Lanvin and laughed it up with Ashanti.


 

 

It's great to see so many super famous celebs reaching back and giving their time and support to kids today.


 

Much like Denzel Washington, many of the celebs participated in various programs while growing up.  Mario Lopez was a wrestler at the Chulo Vista Boys and Girls Club.  Also, Sugar Ray Leonard, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Martin Sheen, Courtney B. Vance and Cuba Gooding Jr. participated in the photo call. 

And later on.....Ashanti tweeted a few pics from the set.


 

Ashanti and Kerry look fab together.

Fabness of celebs giving back.

 

And on Broadway......

We told you previously that Halle Berry had landed a role on Broadway, but she pulled out of the play a few months ago as a result of her custody battle.  Now it has been announced that fab chick Angela Bassett is headed to Broadway to replace Halle.

Angela Bassett is replacing Halle in the Broadway production of "The Mountaintop," which also stars Samuel L. Jackson as civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.  Angela will now play the role of a mysterious maid named Camae who visits King at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis the night before his 1968 assassination.

Angela starts her performances of the Katori Hall written-play in September at the Bernard B Jacobs Theatre, with an official opening set for Oct. 13.

My developer is tnyirg to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Ashanti looks

Ashanti looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Hate that Gabriel forced Halle to drop out of this play. Angela tends to overact every role she plays in on film, but this may be right up her alley, since she is more comfortable in theater productions. Still, I do not see a Tony Award in her future...

What the hell is wrong with Jennifer Lopez's face in that group shot? A few other celebrities faces came out really awkward, was that some type of photoshop gone wrong or what? Loves Ne-yo and Smokie Robinson!! Great photo of Mario Lopez and Ashanti, they both have beautiful smiles.

My husband makes me laugh

My husband makes me laugh like that cause he can make people look stupid. Whatever you thinking he would say it. It goes too say that, people could be minding their own business waiting in a aisle at the store and will laugh from hearing the joke and say "oh, I'm sorry". We say that's okay, cause he's that funny.

What in the world could

What in the world could Jennifer have been saying to have Ashanti cackling like that? Or maybe Ashanti was just happy to be someplace with people taking pics of her again. lol, just kidding. She looks great and actually everyone looks great and this is a fantastic cause.
Twilightey's picture

Maybe Ashanti was cackling at

Maybe Ashanti was cackling at the memory of Jennifer denying her writing credit on 'Aint it Funny' and cutting her out of the music video too. If you watch closely you can see Ashanti sitting just off screen for a lot of the video. Maybe she was cackling at the thought of revenge on the charts one day...just a guess...

She did get a writer credit

She did get a writer credit for that song.She just cutted her out in the video. which ashanti got paid $2,000 to be in.which means jlo didnt get her money worth.jlo tried to change some of the things so she could get bigger share of the sales of that song. ashanti wrote the chorus the first and second vesus. and the ending of the song. jlo wrote the third versus www.isiahhurts.webs.com
