UPDATED ON : MARCH 26, 2015 / 08:45 AM

Over a year after his departure from Scandal, Columbus Short is playing a character helping to solve a crime rather than cover it up. The actor stars in the independent film The Girl Is in Trouble, playing a Lower East Side DJ whose world is shaken up when he gets a phone call in the middle of the night from a girl he met at one of his clubs.

Scared and in shock, the girl (Alicja Bachleda) confides in Short that she witnessed and is involved in a murder mystery centered around a missing drug dealer and New York’s most powerful stockbroker. This kicks off Short's descent into the dark underworld of New York City, headed by a tough gangster played by Wilmer Valderrama.

The film is produced by Spike Lee and directed by Julius Onah. Check out our exclusive first look at a scene from The Girl Is in Trouble below and see the film in select theaters and on demand starting April 3. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
