Allegedly, Miller was kicked to the curb since he couldn’t quite get the required dance moves down. Basically, he doesn’t have that male stripper edge.
But Ri’chard — as his replacement — has the right stuff to play the male lead in what is already considered the black version of the popular film, “Magic Mike,” reports AlwaysAList.
Ri’chard previously starred on Nickelodeon show “Cousin Skeeter” and then, became hot stuff on “One on One” and “Meet the Browns.”
Now he’ll star as a young college student named Devin who is sucked into the world of exotic dancing in order to pay bills.
But Ri’chard isn’t the only hot stuff that will be featured in the film. Tyson Beckford, Ginuwine and Darrin Dewitt Henson will put down the moves as well.
Other cast members include Michael Jai White, Vivica A. Fox, DeRay Davis, Carmen Electra and Imani Hakim.
The film is being shot independently and footage has already leaked online. Nu-Lite Entertainment is producing the film that is expected to be released sometime in 2015 with eOne Entertainment’s non-theatrical division.
Poor Romeo Miller :'( lost this great opportunity.
