Orlando Jones, aka the original 7-Up Guy, has been keeping a relatively low profile over the past few years, though his IMDb page assures us he's been keeping busy. Now he's been cast in Misconceptions, an independent dramedy from writer-director Ron Satlof. According to THR:
The story centers on a religiously conservative married woman (played by A.J. Cook of Criminal Minds) from the South who receives a message from God telling her to act as a surrogate mother for two gay men.
Jones will play Terry, the hopeful parent who comes to the woman's home to micromanage her pregnancy and in the process causes havoc.
The cast also includes Sarah Carter, Sam Ball, David Sutcliffe and David Moscow. Moscow will play Jones' life partner. Ira Pearlstein co-wrote the screenplay with Satlof. The premise sounds a bit like a bad sitcom pilot (or KKK propaganda- "the blacks and the gays want you to carry their interracial gay babies!"), but maybe it'll resonate with people after all.
