*Larenz Tate will have a busy 2014.
The “Rescue Me” alum will star in the film “Sylvie’s Love,” which is set in NYC’s late-’50s/early-’60s jazz scene and features the actor as a prodigious Harlem saxophonist. The story follows a young woman who struggles to balance her loyalty to her fiancé fighting in Korea against her love for the sax man.
Tate will also produce the pic under TateMen Entertainment — the production banner he runs with his brothers LaRon and Lahmard Tate.
On the television side, the actor will follow up his arc on Showtime’s “House of Lies” last year with the NBC comedy pilot “Mr. Robinson,” starring “The Office” alum Craig Robinson.
Tate’s big-screen credits include “Ray,” “Crash” and “Menace II Society.”
