Tyrese Snags Recurring Role In “STAR”
He’s booked. Tyrese Gibson has snagged a recurring role on Fox’s new series Star, created/executive produced by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy. Last week, we spotted him on set, filming.
Gibson will play Pastor Bobby Harris, a leader and confidant to many who presides over Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) warm congregation. A handsome ex-thug, who has, like Carlotta, turned his life over to God. 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. Tyrese shared a photo of him on set.
