This weekend, Vin Diesel reprises his sci-fi anti-hero character in “Riddick” the third installment in the franchise. Must be nice to be Vin; he only does two films and they both turn out to be multi-film profitmakers. Oprah and T.D. Jakes come together during Jakes’ recent MegaFest and the results will be seen on “Oprah’s  Lifeclass” this Sunday when the duo talk more about fatherless children. Author/professor MK Asante’s new memoir makes the case that no matter how celebrated your parents might be, you can still falter, especially in the mean streets of Philadelphia. Here’s more of what’s going on this weekend.
