Tyson Beckford. Romeo Miller…Robert Ri’Chard.
After the first two were called to pull moviegoers into the African-American stripper movie ‘Chocolate City‘, actor Robert Ri’Chard now stands as the latest actor to join the project, 13 years after he took on the role of Arnaz on hit show ‘One on One.’
Green-lit following the success Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Magic Mike’, ‘Chocolate City’ tells the story of a young God fearing man named Devin who takes to exotic dancing to get through college.
Now, after announcing that Miller was to take on the lead role, the movie has now welcomed Ri’Chard to its cast and – according to ‘EurWeb‘- handed him Miller’s part…forcing the rapper out of the project altogether.
Snapped alongside the flick’s star Tyson Beckford, Robert’s arrival sees him do so alongside actress Vivica Fox and ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘ regular Adi ‘Bambi’ Benson.
His securing of the part comes 13 years after he joined Ruby Dee, Eartha Kitt and Forrest Whittaker to welcome the release of ‘The Feast of All Saints‘ miniseries.
