'The Photograph': Issa Rae And Lakeith Stanfield Romantic Drama Adds 4 More To Its Star-Studded Ensemble Cast

Four more actors have joined Universal’s The Photograph, directed by Stella Meghie and produced by Will Packer.

The Issa Rae and Lakeith Stanfield-led romantic drama just added Chelsea Peretti, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Chante Adams, Y’Lan Noel and Jasmine Cephas Jones.

Now, Teyonah Parris, Rob Morgan, Lil Rel Howery and Courtney B. Vance have joined.

As with Rae and Stanfield’s roles, we aren’t clear on their characters so far, and we don’t know that much about the plot either besides the fact that it focuses on “intertwining love stories in the past and present.”

Parris, who appeared on the big screen in last year’s If Beale Street Could Talk, will star alongside Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in the upcoming Candyman film at MGM. Morgan can be seen in the Sundance hit The Last Black Man in San Francisco, which will be released this summer. He will also appear in RZA’s Cut Throat City opposite Terrence Howard and Just Mercy with Michael B. Jordan and Brie Larson. Howery, who was seen on film in Bird Box late last year, will come up next in another hit from Sundance, Brittany Runs a Marathon. Vance will star in the upcoming Netflix film Uncorked, and he’ll star in HBO’s series from Jordan Peele and Misha Green, Lovecraft Country, opposite Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Elizabeth Debicki.

Deadline first reported the news of the castings.
