Eriq LaSalle will join legendary actress Cicely Tyson and Michael Beach in Hallmark film "Relative Stranger," reports Hollywood Reporter.
LaSalle reportedly plays an angry man who abandoned his wife, children and extended family six years ago. When his father dies, he returns to get what his dad left to him and reunites with his family in the process. Tyson plays his mom, and Beach ("Soul Food") plays his brother.
Wow. LaSalle as an angry Black man? We've never seen THAT before.
