Cedric the Entertainer is set to make his directorial debut with the Chicago Pulaski Jones.
It centers around a young championship dancer, Jones, who heads to the big city for his shot at superstardom. On the day he arrives, his uncle is murdered, leaving Jones to avenge his uncle’s death vigilante style and alone. [Hollywood Reporter]
Okay, so far so good – nothing really out of the ordinary, at least. But the writer on the project? None other than Kel Mitchell (who’s a born-again Christian now, naturally). All these years, the only thing that’s kept me going since Kenen Thompson joined the Saturday Night Live cast is that at least his buddy Kel was rightfully toiling in obscurity. Apparently not.
If you need a refresher, check out Kel’s delightfully endearing star turn in Goodburger, after the jump. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to add “self harm” to my to-do list (right after “dress kitty for the ball”).
