"Just Another Day" Features Stars from "The Wire"

I learned from AOL Black Voices blog, "BV on Movies" about a recent film reuniting stars from The Wire.

Jamie Hector (who played the drug kingpin Marlo Stanfield) and Wood Harris (who played the drug kingpin Avon Barksdale), two actors who appeared on HBO's critically acclaimed series, The Wire, are reunited in Just Another Day, a Hip-Hop film coming to home video on July 20.

Just Another Day, which is directed by Peter Spirer, focuses on two men – one struggling at the top and the other struggling at the bottom of the volatile hip-hop scene. Their paths cross over the course of 24 hours.

Hector plays Young Eastie, a rapper who is willing to do anything to get his first record deal. Young Eastie hopes to get a deal through his hero, the legendary A-Maze (Harris), who believes that he is losing his own place at the top of the Hip-Hop industry. A-Maze will use anyone to stay on top, to hold onto his notoriety – even Young Eastie.

Rappers Trick Daddy, Lil Scrappy, Ja Rule and Petey Pablo also appear in the film.
