Michael Ealy joins the cast of ‘Being Mary Jane’ for season 4
Michael Ealy is joining the cast of “Being Mary Jane” for its fourth season and is slated to appear opposite Gabrielle Union in a lead role.
Ealy will be playing the character of Justin Talbot, the new producer of Great Day USA as well as the man who got Mary Jane Paul fired from CNN.
While Ealy had been considering several offers for next year, he admitted that he wasn’t interested in doing another show but heard Union out because she is a friend.
“I had turned down several network offers, as I really was not interested in doing another show at the time, but because Gabrielle is a friend, I told her that I’d seriously think about and talk with my team,” Ealy said.
“At the end of the day, I felt like we all have a social responsibility to help elevate material with people of color in any way that we can, and if there was an opportunity for me to help my friend and the cultural perceptions of our work, then I would do my part.”
We’re excited to see Michael Ealy in this new role, and for the next season of “Being Mary Jane”!
