In the new Lee Daniels drama Star on Fox, 18-year-old Star (Jude Demorest) is an aspiring singer who puts together a singing trio with her sister Simone (Brittany O’Grady) and friend Alexandra (Ryan Destiny). The girls are lucky to have befriended Carlotta (Queen Latifah) as their surrogate mother. But Carlotta has her own drama to deal with, namely with Pastor Bobby Harris. Their relationship “will ultimately create a crisis of faith for them both.”
Pastor Bobby Harris is portrayed by Tyrese Gibson. He’s known for his roles as Roman Pearce in the Fast & Furious films and as USAF Chief Master Sergeant Epps in the Transformers movies. Fun fact: Gibson also played the boyfriend in Lady Gaga‘s 2010 music video “Telephone” with Beyonce. Star premieres on Wednesday, December 14 at 9pm on FOX, right after Empire.
