Janet Hubert, who is best known for her role as Aunt Viv on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” is making a big comeback this year. Hubert will play with Gabrielle Union, Keith Powers, Gina Torres, La La Anthony, and Aisha Hinds in the upcoming Netflix film “The Perfect Find.” Hubert has joined the cast of Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish’s TBS comedy “The Last O.G.” as previously reported.
“The Perfect Find” is based on Tia Williams’ novel, according to Deadline. It revolves around a 40-year-old woman who has everything on the line — including a high-stakes career, a ticking biological clock, and a dwindling bank account — and is being watched to see if she’s willing to risk it all for an intensely lusty secret romance with the one person who could completely derail her comeback.
“Can’t wait for this one @gabunion & @missnuma 🥰🥰Gab we haven’t done a film together since Think Like A Man. This one is gonna be GOODDDDD❤️❤️can’t forget @keithpowers too!! DREAM TEAM 🎉,” Anthony discussed the new flick on Instagram.
Union is also a producer on the film, which will be directed by Numa Perrier and stars Union. Perrier collaborated with Leigh Davenport on the script.
“Well this is exciting!!! Can’t wait to get started. The character of Darcy is a force to be reckoned with, and @gabunion is exactly the kind of playmate to make this all kinds of fun! Thanks @netflix and @missnuma for this opportunity. Here we go! #onlyloveisreal ❤️ #blackgirlmagic #latinxonscreen #representationmatters,” Torres took to Instagram to express himself.
Powers, who is most remembered for his role as Ronnie DeVoe in “The New Edition Story,” took to social media to announce the film’s release.
“All glory to God. Any win of mine is a win for 916. Thank you @gabunion, @producertommy, @missnuma, Holly Fleischer and @netflix for believing in me. Can’t wait to get to work. 🙏🏿❤️,” he posted.
