Kerry Washington's husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, landed a role in the movie Crown Heights, which opens in theaters for a limited release on Friday.

In the movie, which won the Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Asomugha plays Carl “KC” King, a Brooklyn man who is wrongly accused of murder.

At the peak of his NFL career he earned a reported $60 million with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The former three-time Pro Bowler was unemployed for years after being waived by the San Francisco 49ers in 2013. The popular cornerback signed a one-day contract with Oakland for $1 so he could retire as a Raider in 2013.

He met actress Kerry Washington and quickly married her in 2013. The couple fell pregnant not long after.

The fairytale love story would have ended there, but Washington will soon find herself out of work after ABC's Scandal ends its run after 6 seasons.

Kerry and Nnambdi have a hefty mortgage and two mouths to feed, daughter Isabelle, 3, and son Caleb, 10 months.

Asomugha attended the New York premiere of Crown Heights without his famous wife (who stayed home with the kids) on Tuesday, August 15.

    ABC really screwed that up losing Shonda Rhimes.

  • jazmine

  • Blaque Mahogany

    The couple fell pregnant
    Only, SR.

    Her husband looks like another actor when his mouth is closed. Can't think of the actors name though.

  • Dem Moore

  • Soda

    Does a person have to work if he or she has enough money to maintain his or her lifestyle?

  • The Dutchess

  • Lisa daniels

  • Lisa daniels

  • Lisa daniels

    Sandra is one ignorant bytch. She talks about this couple like they are a bus driver and a school teacher, unemployed and retired are two different things. $60mil at the peak, he can take care of Kerry and any little babies that come along. Stop acting as though every black woman is a fool in romantic relationships. She picked a handsome, wealthy, educated, worldly intelligent husband. Sandra likes to act as though they don't exist. He courted her, she did her due diligence, they got married and started a family all complete with a boy and a girl, perfect.

  • xenaD

    One more season of scandal!! So it ends after 7. Also, Sandra U need to take a lil break.... u r shading the wrong people today

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Sandra you're shady af LOL & his smile makes me smile. That's a genuine koolaid smile ?

  • Carla
  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Good for him ???

  • Li

    If you look on IMDB and other entertainment sites Kerry has a TV deal with ABC. She's temporarily unemployed.
    As for hubby. I hope she knows what she's doing, because actor-actress marriages don't usually work out. But he seems to be bored in his life style, and probably needs to do something to keep busy.

  • Bonsai

    What did Nnamdi do to Sandra ??

  • Bonsai

    I think so, cause eventually you get bored. So, he's working not because of the money but it's just something to do.

  • Bonsai

    Yeah, he really is a good looking man though. I don't know why Sandra chose that pick for.

  • abby500

    That face...

  • Jen_no_juice

    But he retired and earned over $60mil. I'm sure he has invested and getting money that way too. He's probably bored and needs something to do

  • You Could Never

    Omit Kerry and her dude name and NFL and add in
    ATL Songbird, her husband name and NBA and tell me what does that spell?

  • Justlooknout

    60 million, he living comfortable.

    Congrats Brother!!!!

  • Desiree Edwards

    Wow Sandra, you don't even try to hide your hatefulness. Why so negative, you don't know his finances, are you in his bank account??

  • jazmine

    He earned over 60 million in NFL salary and he had endorsements. He was in the NFLPA long enough to have a pension. What people want him to do go work at sears?

  • Lisa daniels

    Oh, Sandra made it seem like he was a bum. Like Kendoke.

  • speakinmymind

    Sandra picks the worst pics of people...just shady and petty as hell!???

  • speakinmymind

    Who writes this shit..."fell" pregnant. Ain't no suchofathang, as my Granma would say.

  • SandraRose

    It's just a gossip blog, hun.

  • Dahl

    I don't know if that's low gums or inner lip-meat covering his top teeth, but what a god awful pic. Why is dude's nickname KC if he's Carl King? And that dude looks like a La-Keith...

  • speakinmymind

    inner lip meat...????

  • mona q

    He actually has two other movies under his belt. Just saw one the other night. From 2012. He did well.

  • mona q
  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yes! Thank you.

  • Dee Jone

    This story is limited and based upon half truths, this young man does have an acting role however a film is has financed and produced through his film corporation was purchased for over 9 million dollars for distribution at Sundance. Why isn't that reported?

  • xenaD

    That also looks like fiction from sytycd ?

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Because she's not a fan of his wife. SMH

    And Sandra, the picture you used of him with his mouth opened, shameful.

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    She used that pic intentionally. He's actually a handsome man. Sandra at her finest?

  • bashi

    He's a handsome guy her fiancé that white must be salty. She use to have a fling with rapper common

  • SandraRose

    The man is happy to be working after depending on his wife financially for years.

  • hottlanta

    So he graduated from Sherri Shephard's ex-husband Sal's school of male gold diggers. He said get them babies man those are checks for 18 years. He seems Sal has started a trend. Apollo was the graduate that messed up and went back to jail. He had the best gig in town with Fakedra.

  • stav

    Which you're slowly but surely turning into a one-sided political blog!

  • MRiGOThim

    He's so handsome...just don't CHEESE DAT HARD :)

  • James Hudson

    ABC fucked up letting Shonda get away, when Viola took off her wig in "How to get away with murder" THAT won her an Emmy, crying thru snot & spit in "Fences" won her an Oscar, ABC should have made her a billionaire just to keep her happy.

  • Malcom Flex

    her blog her rules

  • Hell_On_Heelz

    Not true Sandra. You know he's a retired NFL player who was smart with his financial resources.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Something about Lakeith Stanfield turns me on. Idk what it is but it does...

  • Bdot

    Sandra is so petty. These people will be just fine.

  • softness1

    This guy is running his own foundation, but they trying to make it sound like he does nothing all day.. He has money and his major was corporate finance.. I hate that they try to make him some bum ass.. Stop

  • Jennifer

    Thumb sucker.

  • Fellowship morgan

    Why are Black people so TERRIBLE to other Black people? If he earned 60 million at the minimum he's GOOD!!!!!!

  • Fellowship morgan

    Meanwhile Europeans say and DO anything to your punk ass with IMPUNITY!!!!!

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I can promise you they are not hurting for money. I'm quite sure Kerry has something in the works.
    (Like I know them right)?

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Desiree Edwards

    She doesn't know these people's personal finances just spewing hatefulness for NO reason.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Branch Davidian

    It's weird to me that a guy like Nnamdi Asomugha tends to get dragged all the time. Whether or not he was a great CB or whether he got the entire $60 Mil (he didn't) is irrelevant. He is a smart dude who married well and who, by all accounts, is a good Dad. Yet every time I see him on a blog he is being called gay or a freeloader. Does anyone else see how stupid that sounds?

  • Greatgrape37

    Me too omg. It's his eyes I think

  • KcoolMuziq

    I went to a screening of ‘Crown Heights’ last week with a sit down Q&A with the cast. Nnamdi was SUPRISINGLY very good in this movie. He’s also VERY articulate off screen as well. I was very impressed.

    This movie is a MUST see! The whole cast slated it!

  • Legacy

    Exactly! Plus, Kerry is never without a job these days. She doesn't wait on roles to fall in her lap. She is a BOSS now making BOSS moves as a producer! Get it right Sandra!
