Playin’ For Love will be released on DVD tomorrow and the star-studded film features Salli Richardson Whitfield, Jenifer Lewis and Robert Townsend.

Movie veteran Robert Townsend talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about his new film, the upcoming Five Heartbeats documentary and bringing a few of the guys aboard the 2016 Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage presented by Ford.

“We’ve got Michael Wright, Eddie Kane, Leon, JT and Dresser coming. Choir Boy isn’t going to be there but we might try to get Big Red.”

About his latest film Playin’ For Love:

“It’s a romantic comedy that I shot in Miami. This is a film that I shot in the community. We did the movie with the community to help stop the violence. I had 20 kids work with me and they also got to be in the movie. This was a community project and I shot in Overtown and the kids all got to be Executive Producers on the film.”
