Being Mary Jane Returns for Season 4 with Michael Ealy Joining the Cast
Michael Ealy is set to play Justin Talbot, the new producer of Great Day USA who happens to also the man who previously got her fired from CNN. If MJ didn’t have enough drama on her hands we smell a rivalry romance brewing. Once Mary Jane joins Great Day USA,Talbot persists as a “problem”for Mary Jane’s and she must learn to cleverly circumvent his power plays.
The Being Mary Jane role apparently hasn’t been a no-brainer for the mega movie star, Ealy. He had been considering multiple feature offers for next year, says he was approached directly by his friend Gabrielle Union to consider taking on the role:
“I had turned down several network offers, as I really was not interested in doing another show at the time, but because Gabrielle is a friend, I told her that I’d seriously think about and talk with my team. At the end of the day, I felt like we all have a social responsibility to help elevate material with people of color in any way that we can, and if there was an opportunity for me to help my friend and the cultural perceptions of our work, then I would do my part.”
