Tyrese Gibson has become known as an action star on the big screen, but the actor and singer is now entering the television world as a corrupt preacher who he believes will ruffle a lot of feathers.
"This character is going to piss off a lot of people - I play a twisted pastor I will just leave it at that...... #Star #Fox[Lee Daniels] created another monster - Dec 14th debut get ready people," Gibson wrote to his fans on Instagram.
On the upcoming Fox series "Star," Gibson will play Pastor Bobby Harris, the love interest of Queen Latifah who will portray Carlotta Brown. While viewers will have to watch the show to see Gibson's storyline, Deadline is giving away some clues about what people can expect.
"Gibson will play Pastor Bobby Harris, a leader and confidant to many who presides over Carlotta Brown's (Queen Latifah) warm congregation. A handsome ex-thug, who has, like Carlotta, turned his life over to God," a description of Gibson's character on Deadline reads. "Carlotta and Pastor Harris begin a relationship that will be challenged on many fronts and which will ultimately create a crisis of faith for them both."
Aside from Gibson and Queen Latifah's recurring roles, the show "Star" features seasoned actors Benjamin Bratt and Nicholas Gonzalez along with celebrity guest appearances. The series created by Lee Daniels ("Empire") centers around three young singers who are trying to break into the music industry.
