Halle Berry happily hits the red carpet alongside Lena Waithe while attending the premiere of their new BET series Boomerang held at the Wolf Theatre on Monday (February 11) in North Hollywood, Calif.
That same day, the 52-year-old actress and the 34-year-old writer-producer hit the stage during the BET segment of the 2019 Winter TCA Press Tour at The Langham Huntington to represent the show with it’s stars: Dime Davis, Tetona Jackson, Tequan Richmond, Leland Martin, Brittany Inge, RJ Walker and Lala Milan.
Halle and Lena serve as executive producers of the remake of the 1992 movie, in which Berry starred alongside Eddie Murphy. “You might see me at some point. I can’t speak for anybody else in the cast, I can only speak for myself,” Halle expressed at the event (via EW). “I am so proud of this show, and you might see me. You might see me, for sure.”
“I haven’t spoken to anyone from the original show. Lena came to me — it was her passion and she just said, ‘I gotta do this and I want to team up with you. I have to bring a modern version of this story to our people. Please do this for me,’” Halle continued. “Lena came to me with her heart, her passion, and a real desire to do it. And I said yes before really knowing how any of my other costars felt.”
FYI: Halle is wearing an Elie Saab dress at the premiere.
