It looks like playing New Edition in the upcoming BET miniseries has the cast feeling like they should BE New Edition … 2.0, that is.
Luke James (Johnny Gill), Woody McClain (Bobby Brown), Elijah Kelley (Ricky Bell), Bryshere Y. Gray (Michael Bivins), Algee Smith (Ralph Tresvant) and Keith Powers (Ronnie DeVoe) are all set to hit the small screen as New Edition. The guys have even become so close that, even though they wrapped shooting a long time ago, they still call, text and kick it often — which is why when they told HipHollywood that they were going to do music together too, it all made sense.
HH caught up with the guys at the Soul Train Awards in Las Vegas, where they revealed that something was definitely “in the works” when it came to music that they would be doing together. But, their first priority is The New Edition Story which airs on BET January 24, 25 and 26. “This is deeper than what you’ve ever seen,” Luke exclaimed.
