It's probably safe to say that every fan would easily fall into the arms of Redaric Williams (ex-Tyler Michaelson, The Young and the Restless) with so much as a come-hither look from the gorgeous actor, but can the same be said for the fictional characters he shares the screen with? We're about to find out in the actor's upcoming film, Don't Waste Your Pretty.
Based on a novel by life coach and blogger Demetria L. Lucas, the movie tells the story of a tightly knit group of friends trying to sort out their turbulent life and love issues. First, there's Mykah (singer Keri Hilson), who finally takes a break from extreme career focus to look for love. Encouraged by her best friends, Mykah embraces the dating scene by taking their suggestions on speed dating, making online connections, and hitting the nightlife -- but soon discovers love might be right in front of her.
Then there's fun-loving, married couple Amma (Kaye Singleton) and Aisha (Jasmine Burke), who are the "#couplegoals" of the group but struggle to strike a balance as they embark on their parenthood journey.
And last, but not least, there's recent divorcée Jeanné (Deborah Joy Winans), who has put the idea of love on ice but has to decide if the burning flame from Mykah's twin brother, Michael (Williams), is warm enough to melt her heart again. (Spoiler alert: It's going to! Right?!)
