Screen Juice: Beyonce Books New Obama Performance / Mahershala Ali Takes ‘Moonlight’ To Good Morning America

Published: Thursday 5th Jan 2017 by David

Welcome to another edition of Screen Juice, the original TGJ feature carved out to keep you in the loop with all things Film and TV-related.

Why Mahershala Ali and Beyonce make up the ingredients of today’s entertainment smoothie?

Find out below…

The masterly Mahershala appeared on GMA to promote the groundbreaking ‘Moonlight’ before the release of his new movie ‘Hidden Figures’ tomorrow.

He had this to say about his role in ‘Moonlight’:

A lot of actors wish they were having a visceral response to the scripts that they’re reading. And the first time I read it, I think everyone involved will tell you they got really choked up and just really connected to this story and these characters.

I think a lot of people feel like they’re on the fringes right now. A little bit outside and away from center, and not necessarily represented in the most truthful or most connected way,” he said. “Even though I think there’s very few people in general that can specially connect to Chiron’s experience, I think in some way all of have been ‘the other,’ the person on the outside, maybe not persecuted to the degree that this young man is, but I think we all want to be loved and embraced and need connection and support and family and mentorship. And I think people are seeing that and recognizing the humanity in every individual.


As for Beyonce?

She’s signed on to perform at an event created to wish President Obama farewell as he prepares to leave the White House.

Set to take place tomorrow night, the party is also expected to deliver performances and appearances from Jay-Z, Stevie Wonder, Usher, George Lucas, Gayle King and Bradley Cooper.

Keep it locked on TGJ for more on the event.

    Lord, I can’t believe The Obamas will be moving out next week ???. Usher, Bey and Stevie were always frequent guests during his administration. I’m sad to see him go. Anyway, Mahershala Ali is looking like a nice ?snack! Lemme scour the internet and stan a bit.
