BET.com Video Exclusive: Sherri Shepherd Stars in One For the Money

She calls the film, now on DVD, her “dream” role.

Published May 11, 2012

Audiences are accustomed to Sherri Shepherd donning different hairstyles daily on The View.  But the actress turned up her varied coifs a few notches and added eye-popping outrageous outfits to portray the character Lula in One For the Money.  In the film, she plays a street-wise and savvy hooker who aids a bail bondswoman (Katherine Heigl) with cracking her first big case.

 The 30 Rock star absolutely shuts down the stereotype police; Shepherd says she's one Black actress who absolutely had no regrets about playing a prostitute. This lady of the night is a role she always envisioned for herself. Check out the video below from Making the Money: Behind the Scenes special feature.


One For the Money
is on DVD, Blu-ray Disc, Digital Download and On Demand May 15.
