The Pulse of Entertainment: Know the ‘Mind of a Man’ and Win $10,000 on GSN’s Game Show Hosted by DeRay Davis

Know the ‘Mind of a Man’ and win $10,000 on GSN’s game show hosted by DeRay Davis

Comedian/actor DeRay Davis is host of the new GSN game show ‘Mind of a Man.’

*“We surveyed a 100 men,” said comedian/actor DeRay Davis about the new game show he is hosting on the Game Show Network (GSN), “Mind of a Man.” “Seven correct answers you get $10,000.”

The new game show, “Mind of a Man,” has two women competing to see who knows best how a man thinks. It airs on GSN on Wednesdays at 10/9c. It premiered January 8, 2014 and has an unbelievable 40 episodes for this this season.

“More women are watching. We’re starting out with 40 episodes. In January we were the most successful game show of the month,” said Davis about the premiere month of the show. “I’m hosting as long as women and men are trying to figure each other out.”

The two women competing will have the help of a panel of special guest celebrities.

“I went in…I thought they wanted me to be a panelist because I say so much crazy stuff,” DeRay pointed out. “We have game show police. I can’t make eye contact. There’s a game show rule that I have nothing to do with picking contestants. A girl was disqualified for knowing me.”

The half-hour game show focuses on what men think about dating, marriage, working and all manners of manly pursuits. The panel is a mix of funny male and female celebrities giving their opinions about what men are thinking.

DeRay Davis, a Chicago native, is a stand-up comedian that, after a move to Los Angeles, won Comedy Central’s Laugh Riot competition. He then went on to tour with Cedric the Entertainer. Other appearances include BET’s “Comic View,” Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out,” Short Circuitz, and MTV’s “Hip-Hop Square.’

As an actor Davis credits include Johnson Family Vacation, Barber Shop and Barber Shop 2, Semi-Pro, 21 Jump Street, HBO’s “Entourage,” “Reno 911,” GI Joe: Retaliation, Jumping the Broom and Scary Movie 4.

The CinemaScore A- rated Baggage Claim comedy is now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital HD

David E. Talberts' Baggage Claim starring Paula Patton is now on DVD and Blu-ray.

David E. Talberts’ Baggage Claim starring Paula Patton is now on DVD and Blu-ray.

*The Fox Searchlight distributed comedic film Baggage Claim starring Paula Patton, Adam Brody, Djimon Hounsou, Taye Diggs, Christina Milian, Jill Scott, Trey Songz, Lauren London, Boris Kodjoe, LaLa Anthony and Derek Luke, and directed and written by David E. Talbert, is now on DVD, Blu-ray and digital HD via 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. Rated by CinemaScore with an A- Baggage Claim, released to theaters September 27, 2013, tripled its $8.5 million budget with box office revenue of over $22,500,000.

 The film follows flight attendant Montana Moore (Patton), who is smart and sexy, as she searches for someone to get engaged to before her younger sister Sheree’s (London) wedding. With the help of her fellow attendants Gail (Scott) and Sam (Brody) she ‘accidentally’ meets her past loves again with a plan to pick one in 30 days.

“The character Gail was voluptuous, beautiful, uninhibited and funny,” said David E. Talbert about Montana’s best friend. “When casting her (Jill Scott) agent called. I said I love your music but this character shows cleavage. She said, ‘I have cleavage’.”

Jill Scott’s cleavage is what you get a lot of in the film along with her great comedic timing and excellent acting ability.

“My box I put her in wasn’t the box she was in,” David added. “I had to hold her back!”

He also talked about when he cast Trey Songz and Tia Mowry-Hardrict.

“Trey Songz, I saw how so much fun he was,” Talbert said. “And Tia, she is so sweet…she came and wanted to play the crazed and deranged girlfriend.”

Baggage Claim is produced by David and Steven J. Wolfe. Known for his stage plays Talbert’s credits include a television special documentary “Jamie Foxx: Unpredictable,” First Sunday starring Katt Williams, Ice Cube and Tracy Morgan; He Said…She Said…But What Does God Say (2004), Love in the Nick of Tyme, and The Fabric of a Man.

Also starring in the film are Rickey Smiley, Terrence Jenkins, Affion Crockett, and Jenifer Lewis. Learn more about Baggage Claim at www.FoxSearchLight.com/BaggageClaim and David E. Talbert at www.DavidETalbert.com.

The NAACP Image Award, a major fundraiser, has held major red carpeted events where nominees have received the royal treatment at functions, and at a celebrity filled luncheon hosted by Roland Martin and Judge Lauren Lake.

The NAACP Image Awards will air on TV One at 9/8c this weekend; it’s a five year deal with the ten year old Radio One network that is subscribed by over 57 million homes. It’s the home of “The Rickey Smiley Show,” Roland Martin’s “News One Now,” “R&B Divas ATL” and its spin-off “R&B Divas LA,” and “Love That Girl.”

Some of my favorite artists, entertainment industry executives and shows that are nominated include Bill Duke’s “Dark Girls” (OWN); Debbie Allen and Chandra Wilson for their roles in “Grey’s Anatomy” (ABC); Ethan Dizon and Skylan Brooks representing for The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete (Codeblack); Neicy Nash and Cedric the Entertainer for their roles in “The Soulman” (TV Land); Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon for their roles in “Real Husbands of Hollywood” (BET); Brandy Norwood in “The Game” (BET); LL Cool J in “NCIS: Los Angeles” (CBS); Regina King in “SouthLAnd” (TNT); Angela Bassett in ”Betty & Coretta” (Lifetime);  Tatyanna Ali in “The Young and the Restless” (CBS); “The Arsenio Hall Show” (syndicated/CBS); “The Queen Latifah Show” (syndicated/CBS); China Anne McClain for her role in “A.N.T.

“The challenging part was finding a place…transforming,” said young actor Skylan Brooks who played Mister in the Codeblack dramatic film The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete. “George Tillman (director) told me I had to bring everything out…and I pulled it out.”

Another young actor, Eric I. Keyes, who hosts a young adult news show “Live Life & Win!” that’s syndicated and airs across the country on the Fox Network said about his nomination that being nominated, “…feels amazing. There are so many talented people. It’s really exciting.”
