Black Actors/Actresses Who Could Play Siblings In Film or TV

We are in a world of more than 7 billion people, so there is always a possibility that someone would look just like you- an older or younger version. This resemblance is not overlooked in Hollywood, as this helps in casting actors as siblings in movies. You would be impressed at how these actors look so alike, and sometimes you could even have a problem distinguishing them. Here we highlight some actors and actresses that can play siblings in film or television. 

DAVID BOYEGA & DENZEL WASHINGTON

There is a striking similarity between the Star Wars actor and Oscar-winning legend. They look so similar that Boyega could easily play Denzel’s younger brother.

THANDIE NEWTON & ZOE SALDANA

Westworld‘s Thandie Newton and Avatar‘s Zoe Saldana share such striking similarities in looks, it will be a no-brainer to cast them as sisters.

YAHYA ABDUL MATEEN II & COLMAN DOMINGO

Yahya Abdul Mateen II, known for his roles in DC’s Aquaman and HBO’s Watchmen, could easily play Colman Domingo’s (If Beale Street Could Talk) younger brother.

MICHAEL B. JORDAN & NICK CANNON

The Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan and Drumline‘s Nick Cannon would play handsome brothers on the big screen. You could easily mistake them for siblings even in real life!

TIKA SUMPTER & LUPITA NYONG’O

It would be a delight to see melanated queens Tika Sumpter (Sonic The Hedgehog, Mixed-ish) and Lupita Nyong’o (Us, Black Panther) act side by side as sisters!

DWAYNE JOHNSON & LL COOL J

If Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, and LL Cool J are ever cast as brothers in an action movie, it would be a hit!

RYAN DESTINY AND GABRIELLE UNION

Probably one of the best sibling castings scenarios you can imagine! Ryan Destiny and Gabrielle Union look so much alike, someone proposed a remake of Bring It On with Union as the coach of the Clovers, and Destiny as the lead. Now that would be something we’d want to watch!

LANCE GROSS & KOFI SIRIBOE

These two would make a handsome set of siblings! We’d love to see the Queen Sugar star Kofi Siriboe and House of Payne‘s Lance Gross cast in a film one day.

TERRENCE HOWARD & EVA MARCILLE

Empire‘s Terrence Howard and Sister Code‘s Eva Marcille would be a perfect brother-sister casting, don’t you think?

Comment below – which one of these was a hit and which was a miss. What other actors and actresses could play siblings in film or television.

Meghan Markle To Release Her Debut Children’s Book

The soon-to-be mother of two will also narrate the audiobook version

The actress-turned-duchess is adding a new title to her post-royal résumé. Markle is releasing her debut children’s book, The Bench.

Inspired by her husband Prince Harry and baby Archie, the book will reportedly focus on the special bond between a father and son, viewed through a mother’s eyes.

The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” the new author shared in a statement. “That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens. My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”

Published by Random House Children’s Books, the book is illustrated by award-winning artist Christian Robinson.

The Bench will be published on June 8.

Will Smith’s Body Transformation Will Be Documented In A New Youtube Series

Will Smith broke the internet earlier this week by posting a picture that some would consider unflattering and others could very much relate to. The caption read, “I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life.”

Looking at the shared image, from Smith’s outfit to his physique, one could assume that the I am Legend actor was simply sharing the outcome of his quarantine lifestyle.

Earlier today, however, in another social media post, Smith revealed that the image was just a teaser of what’s to come.

It turns out the actor is teaming up with YouTube for a fitness and wellness series intended to document the 52-year-old’s journey.

“This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry,” he captioned his latest post. “I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins…this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!!”

No further details were disclosed as of yet. We can’t wait to follow this transformation journey!
