Would Toni Childs Do This Movie?

When she left 'Girlfriends' a couple of seasons ago, Jill Marie Jones decided to reinvent herself and ignite a film career. She's completed a few films already, the latest being 'Major Movie Star' with Jessica Simpson and Vivica A. Fox.

In her first role as a lead actress, 'Redrum' will be shown at this year's American Black Film Festival (ABFF) (Oct.25-28), which will take place in Los Angeles.

Featured in the film with Jones are Jenifer Lewis, Kenny Young, Chris Spencer, Danny Woodburn, Terri Vaughn, Rodney Perry, Joe Torry, and Reginald Ballard. aol

From I.W.: I'm still tryin' to figure out if her move to leave "Girlfriends" was linear, up, or down....not looking that great so far, but I wish her well.

At any rate, I'll be at the festival, and I'll relay the shenanigans to ya'll.

i know she's doing some commercials...and the show didn't miss a beat without her. i have no feeling one way or the other, but it's like a big deal was made of her leaving and they just moved on and she's doing liquor commercials or something like that. it certainly wasn't a clooney-esque exit.

She is doing those Bailey's commericals. But she had that contract when she was doing the series. I thought it was the only job she had.

Glad to see she is getting an additional paycheck. But it doesn't look like she is doing big things, just things. Either way much success to her.

I've seen those commercials....cute, and she looks great, but not exactly a career sizzler for someone from a well-known sitcom. I hope she starts getting some high profile parts.

What is going on with the ABFF? I came across a filmmaker's note on a filmmaking messageboard regarding this year's event. It seems that they have not listed the films that are going to be playing, just the schedule for the film festival. That is odd since it's like 1 week from opening night.

It's good to know about at least one of the films that are screening. Thanks for posting the info.

Have fun at the American Black film festival...look forward to your recap on this film.
