*Reginald VelJohnson, best known for his role on “Family Matters” as the befuddled father figure, is brining back his fun personality with a new family flick, “Angel’s Wings.”
He’s set to play ‘Coach Carter,’ a volunteer coach for the Angels, a youth soccer team, who takes his job a bit too seriously.
Joining him are Taylor Faye Ruffin, Tyler Humphrey, and Sean Huze.
Centered around the Angels soccer team, Coach Carter’s star player gets injured and decided to play the water girl. She’ s not the best and is actually quite clumsy but she takes it as a challenge and begins to improve.
But what her team doesn’t know is that she’s not doing it alone.
When things take a turn, the new player is forced to rely on her own talent.
Written and directed by Aaron L. Williams, the goal is to create more positive, uplifting content for the African American community.
“As an African American growing up when I did was tough. I remember wondering where were people that looked like me and my friends and family on television? Other than in the back of a squad car on Hill Street Blues. Think about it, there were so few positive portrayals of Black families and culture… especially Black men. On network television in the eighties and nineties, there were only two: Bill Cosby and Reginald VelJohnson. To work with him on this film is a real blessing.”
Filming for the new movie started over Memorial Day weekend.
