“We’re Just Talking” Writer / Director Cedric Perry is On the Move

My Name is… Cedric Perry

The reason you are reading about me is… I’m reintroducing the art of storytelling (Hah, Slick Rick…get it? *Looks away*) Growing up in the suburbs, my youth included a lot of family gathering, black comedians, timeless music, and sports. So now I’m fusing those elements together to create the shows that make you laugh AND reflect; the happy medium between Roland Martin and Real Housewives.

Idris Elba talks Ghost Rider, Video Games, and How to Pull Off a Convincing American Accent

With the upcoming release of the Ghost Rider film, based on the Marvel comics character, coming this Friday we received a phone call from a fan favorite and long time friend of AlumniRoundup, actor Idris Elba.

Interview by: Bryndan Moore

You are playing the character Moreau in “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.” So who is Moreau?

In the Marvel Universe, Moreau is a character that reoccurs in many different guises and people, and many different comics. He is not one particular person, so we took the name Moreau and made him into this particular character. Moreau is a Priest who likes to drink, travels the world, has his fighting skills, that is fearless. Basically he is kind of like someone that can look into someone’s soul and say I need you to do this or you need to this. He’s that kind of person.

People on the Move – Purple Stuff TV’s Brandon Broussard


My Name is… Brandon Broussard

The reason you are reading about me is… because I created the next great “zeitgeist-Monday-morning-water-cooler-skuttle butt-did you see that sh$%!” sketch show. In my mind, there was SNL then In Living Color then The Chappelle show. Purple Stuff TV is an -edgy, at times raunchy, take no prisoners- sketch show that picks up where Chappelle Show left off. There has been a clear void in sketch shows on TV. We all remember the impact that In Living Color and Chappelle had on our lives. Purple Stuff TV will have that same kind of impact.
