Cuba Gooding Jr. received a profile boost recently thanks to all the attention directed at his upcoming World War II film RED TAILS including a Veterans Day appearance at a New York Jets game.
Gooding Jr. joined Terrence Howard and Nate Parker in director Anthony Hemingway’s drama about the Pentagon in 1944 putting into action the first African American military aviators, the Tuskegee Airmen.
Gooding Jr. maintained the career momentum by joining CREW NINE, a Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie about a counselor at a youth detention center who trains troubled teens how to battle forest fires and other natural disasters.
Variety reported today that Ligiah Villalobos (Under the Same Moon) wrote the script and Darnell Martin (Cadillac Records, I Like It Like That) joined the project as director.
Gooding Jr. recently wrapped the action movie One in the Chamber, about an assassin caught up in a Russian gang war co-starring Expendables and Expendables 2 star Dolph Lundgren.
