Gabrielle Union in Being Mary Jane

With films like Bring It On, Cadillac Records and Think Like a Man on her resume, Union had plenty of roles to keep her busy on the big screen. But the actress opted to take on this BET original series because "it shows the audience I can do more than one thing. It was an opportunity to grow." And audiences love seeing Union as a successful TV anchor trying to balance her professional and personal lives.
