Henson says the success of No Good Deed was gratifying, especially as it proved that some topics are universal.

“It was time to see ‘us’ in a light like that. I  hate to say ‘black’  film or ‘black’ TV show  because then white people think it’s not for us,” Henson says. “I don’t say ‘white’ movie. If a see a trailer and it appeals to me I say ‘I want to see that.”

Henson is currently shooting in Chicago where the polar vortex has taken hold. When the TJMS suggest she ‘find a big guy’ Henson is wiling, but with one condition.

“I don’t want a broke big guy. He gotta help out with the grocery bill. Because with a big guy, comes a grocery bill,” Henson laughs.

The movie will premiere on Lifetime Sunday, November 23rd at 9 p.m. Listen to the whole interview and hear Taraji and the TJMS dish about the Aaliyah Lifetime biopic.
