Luenell Zooms In From The Nail Salon To Chat New Comedy Tour | Celebrity Page

Luenell's schedule is so booked.. she hopped on Zoom all from the salon!



What can't Luenell do?

While prepping for her appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Luenell Zoomed in from her favorite nail salon to chat about her success!

"You know when I started doing stand up comedy, there was no outlet for black comedians on television or anything like that, and there certainly was no money. And then I moved to Los Angeles, and this and that and the other and now I've been in the game, I looked up and it's been 30 years, and I'm just doing me. Just sitting over here in the hood getting my nails done."

Along with her incredibly successful career, Luenell is now serving as an inspiration for aspiring comedians.

"Ro be patted on the back by people coming up, people I used to follow around... I used to follow Paul Mooney around. I used to follow Laura Hayes around. I used to worship Joan Rivers. I used to listen to George Collins, Richard Pryor and all that and to be in maybe that category... It means everything to me."

Get ready Netflix fans! The platform just announced that two of its biggest stars are joining together for their newest movie.

Netflix revealed to TODAY that their latest film project is bringing Joey King, from The Kissing Booth, and Chase Stokes, from Outerbanks, together to play the two lead roles.

The new movie is an adaptation based off of the hit young adult sci-fi series Uglies by Scott Westerfield. Rumors about a film adaptation for the series have been circulating since the first novel's release, so Netflix's announcement comes as quite the pleasant surprise for fans.

Netflix had already teased that King was joining the cast for Uglies, however Stokes' involvement in the production was completely unknown until Tuesday. Along with announcing Stokes as the latest addition to the cast, Brianne Tju, from MTV's Scream, and Keith Powers, from the Freeform drama Famous in Love, will also be joining.

Uglies takes place in a dystopian society where beauty standards are taken to whole new extremes. Instead of getting your driver's permit at 16, teenagers are instead forced to get a complete reconstructive surgery, making them absolutely flawless--but that seems to be the flaw.

King is set to play the main protagonist of the film, Tally Youngblood, who will do literally anything to avoid her surgery. The roles of Stokes, Tju, and Powers still have yet to be released.

Uglies will be directed by Joseph McGinty Nichol, also known as McG, and Krista Vernoff is heading the screenplay adaptation. King will be executive producing the film alongside Jamie King, John Fox, and Scott Westerfield himself.

A premiere date for Uglies has yet to be disclosed.
