Sony Screen Gems' romantic comedy THINK LIKE A MAN (www.thinklikeaman-movie.com); releases nationwide in theatres on April 20th and is based on Steve Harvey's bestselling book "Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man."
The film stars Gabrielle Union, Taraji P. Henson, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Hart. Terrence stars as "Michael," the so-called 'Momma's Boy' whose relationship with his girlfriend (Regina Hall) becomes strained when he tries to balance the needs of both her and his doting mother (Jenifer Lewis).
Also in 2012, Terrence (twitter.com/#!/terrencej) will star alongside the late great Whitney Houston in Sony's remake of the 1970's musical drama SPARKLE (www.sparkle-movie.com); set for release later this summer. The film, starring Jordin Sparks, Cee-Lo, Derek Luke and Mike Epps, chronicles a single mother's (Houston) journey to raise three daughters seeking stardom.
Terrence will also be seen alongside Chris Brown, Josh Holloway and Josh Peck in the upcoming Screen Gems feature PLANET B-BOY (www.planetbboy.com), which centers on an American dance crew that heads to France to compete at the Battle of the Year International Championships.
