Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance took their twins, Bronwyn and Slater (they'll be 5 next month), to the Lakers vs. Heat game on Christmas Day. Angela went dressy casual in a gray blazer, cropped drawstring pants, and wedge heels. Definitely the flyest mom I've ever seen!

2011 promises to be a great year for Angela Bassett. She's got 3 films set to release and a television series in the works with ABC. We've been waiting for the Acting Queen's big return and without further ado; here is what we can expect next year in Angie B News:
Jumping the Broom - May 6, 2011
A wedding comedy that follows two African-American families from two different socio-economic backgrounds as they come together for a weekend wedding in Martha's vineyard. Paula Patton and Laz Alonso play the lead couple. Angela plays Patton's mother, a heiress and pillar of the Washington elite. This would be a different type of matriarch; uppity and bougie. Should be interesting! Jumping the Broom also marks the first reunion of Angela and Loretta Devine, who plays Alonso's mother, since 1995's Waiting to Exhale. Expect some intense scenes between these two as they fight for the HBIC title come Spring!
Green Lantern - June 17, 2011
Green Lantern is the first comic book action themed film for Angela and if rumors are true, this wont be the last. Angie B plays Amanda "The Wall" Waller, a character famous for her intimidating, steely demeanor and fearless leadership of a group of supervillains. The Wall is usually the villain in DC comics but she has been known to switch sides if it benefits her. She has no superpowers but instead is a highly intelligent, government specialist who is so bad ass, shes even shaken up Batman from time to time. Angela's Waller character has many connections in the DC universe and could easily be intertwined in follow up films.
This Means War - TBA
Angela Bassett has decided to join the cast of Fox's new film 'This Means War'. Produced by Will Smith and starring Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon.
The film centers on two best friends who happen to be international spies. But when they fall in love with the same woman, they declare war on each other.
Bassett will play the boss of Pine and Hardy's characters, a woman who has dedicated her life to the spy business and has no life outside the CIA.
Angie's TV pilot, One Police Plaza, will most likely begin production after the holidays, during the first quarter of 2011 to premiere with ABC's fall lineup. To stay up to date on all AB news, make sure to follow us on twitter: [@AngieBNews]

Happy New Year, BassettHounds!
