Diddy, "Raisin," TV

The trailer for the upcoming ABC Raisin in the Sun movie with Sean Combs & co. actually looks pretty hot! I didn't see the Broadway revival, but this just might vindicate his performance after all--especially since the camera might favor it far better than the stage.

There's also Phylicia Rashad and Audra MacDonald, of course.

And just the whole atmosphere and look of the film (directed by Kenny Leon from his stage production) just seems right. Very in period and very tough.

Worth watching, I say. This Monday, February 25.

(But with the trailer, you may want to skip past the first minute of Diddy's weird introduction.)
