The Cast of BET's "Boomerang" talks Continuing The Story of The Hit Movie

The cast of BET's new series "Boomerang" pulled up to The Angie Martinez show today to talk about the show & how it continues the legacy of the film.

When the show was originally announced many fans of the original movie weren't sure if it was going to be a complete remake of the movie or a continuation of the story. The cast of the show assures everyone that the television adaption will not tarnish the reputation of the film, they simply are just continuing the story.

Leland B. Martin who plays Ari on the show is also a gender fluid character, speaking on the challenges of playing that type of character but he believes representation in the show matters but since being gender fluid isn't his experience doing a lot of the physical stuff in the show presented its challenges for him.

"Boomerang" premieres February 12 on BET.
