Martin Lawrence Gabrielle Union Will Smith

Gabrielle Union has a new TV series lined up when Being Mary Jane ends with a 2-hour series finale next year. According to, Union, 44, is set to star in a Bad Boys TV spin-off -- 14 years after she played sexy Special Agent Syd Burnett in the original film.

The pilot for the new show is currently being shopped around to networks, according to Us Weekly.

The original film’s producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, has also signed on. But, so far, there is no word if the original film's stars Martin Lawrence and Will Smith, pictured above with Union, will also sign on.

In the meantime, Union is still busy promoting her new book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, which details her and husband Dwyane wade's kinky sex life. The revelations about the Cleveland Cavalier's sexual proclivities were so embarrassing that he asked his head coach to bench him and let JR Smith start instead.

    Its good to see black folks working....I loved the movies so I would def give this a try. Hopefully it doesn't end up on BET though.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    But, I can not stand her with D.Wade.
    But, I love her.

  • Junkanoo

    What is going on in Hollywood why can't they come up with new ideas they keep regurgitating the same crap, another cop show as if we havent had enough.

  • starbright9449

    Usually when it comes to roles they pick YOUNG hot thangs but Gabby hasn't really aged much. Her body is hot and she's gorgeous. I'm not a fan of her but her face doesn't have a damn wrinkle in site.

  • Rayne

    If Martin is in it I'm here for it but not if they get a "Martin-like" fella. Nope! Ion half watch tv or firestick so ????

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This has been going on for years. Magnificent 7 was actually an Asian film, remade in Hollywierd.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    If they bring back the original cast, but I doubt that's going to happen.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Will Gabby be required to kiss anyone (mouth) in this flick? :-)

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Oh sweetie. She knows she can't carry a show on network tv. I wish she'd stop it.

  • You Could Never

    She prolly ate Will's ass too...nasty whore


    Doo doo ? brown...??

  • hottlanta

    Love ya Gabby get them coins. Imma miss Being Mary Jane. Kudos.

  • Coy little wink

    Lawd I hope not to hear her say next that eating azz is the fountain of youth

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I really didn’t like bad boys 2. The movie went on too long and her character wasn’t exciting

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    That’s if they join I don’t see it tho

  • missarewa

    yassss Gabby! keep winning

  • isaiit

    Funny ?

  • Ms.Devereaux

    OOoooo you petty!!

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Maybe she should play Foxy Brown ?
    Is it too early?

  • Ms.Devereaux

    THAnk you!!!! No new ideas at all bad boyz was cute back in the day because ppl thought martin and Will weren’t cute but nobody wants to see an out of shape Martin and will run around on set!! They need something new and fresh and let these old movies take that were great be great!!

  • Marlika

    I can tell you now Will is not signing on. They can't even get him and Martin to do BB3, so I highly highly doubt either one will do the TV show. I could be wrong, who knows.?????

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    We've basically got the Fast and the Furious #8 so far... with more to come. And then there's all these Batman/ Marvel Comics sequels etc...
    It's like there's just no creativity or originality in Hollywood any more.

  • Vonn

    The rapper?

  • Jussjess25

    O God what for??? ??.. its been done, how about a new concept already dam. They always want to remake shit, how about make some new shit. And aint noboddy checkin for gabby anyway.

  • Jussjess25

    Thank u

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    No the old school movie with Pam Grier being the original Foxy

  • Junkanoo

    They can never leave well enough alone they will milk and idea to death to reap more profit

  • Junkanoo

    Its a sad state of affairs, more creativity and originality would be a breathe of fresh air

  • KeenReady.COM ?

    There's so many books that can be made into tv of my favorite writers Anne Rice...her witch and vampire series of books could and would catch my attention and plenty others I'm sure........


    TMZ is saying Tyrese checked himself into the hospital with “severe chest pains” hours after the ex wife was testifying in court. What’s the tea, Sandy? Is he on some stunt queen isht or nah?

  • gail jones

    We all know the character she's going to play.

  • gail jones

    Emphasis on the 'brown'. Remember the bu?? play?

  • gail jones

    She look like it in that pic of them together. She prolly the reason his gay rumors started.

  • gail jones

    You crazy.

  • pure_rachet

    She wrote an awesome book called Christ the Lord as well. The concept has been done but not the adaptation of the book. She’s a good writer. Have you read her sleeping beauty trilogy???

  • MsPam

    They’ll give him a tampon and some Midol and send his azz home! Bish will be alright!

  • AG


  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    well they won't be on there? shewt I ain't watching without them... Nerp

  • ArDnAhC45

    *Wonders if they'll be any kissing scenes since she tosses salad*

  • speakinmymind


  • Dowoop

    Of course he is.

  • sunni_daze

    I think it would be cool. Gabby still looks the same, I don't think Will Smith, will sign on because he's so big now. But I do think it would be a good look for Martin, since we haven't seen him in anything for a while.

  • sunni_daze

    The DEA agent she played in the last one ?

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    no thank you.

  • KeenReady.COM ?

    Nope I haven't read her books in YEARS...I'll have to go find them now lol

  • Junkanoo

    Am tired of vampires theyve been a hollywood go to since the 1920s but to your point of there being countless books waiting to be adapted,there are no excuse for lazy tired ideas

  • KeenReady.COM ?

    GONE or some gas pills

  • Vonn

    I was afraid of that. She would not make a good Foxy.

  • KeenReady.COM ?

    NONE and yea I just threw that out there lol...I'm tired too...but if you read the books they are much better than any of the bull they've been putting Twilight and vampire diaries ain't got nothing on her sh!t.

  • Vonn

    Lawd, my breakfast is ruined. Lol

  • Bashi22

    Correct her acting sucks to me

  • pure_rachet

    The sleeping beauty trilogy is raunchy beware! I liked it but it’s not for everyone

  • Guess Who

    Why though?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Gabby just doesnt do it for me....

    Even if they have a tv series I dont think I would tune in unless martin and will sign on.

    Will they ever do part 3?

  • JV

    I doubt Will Smith comes back, but he is always trying to get his kids work. Whatever, I don't miss buddy cop movies and am glad they've mostly disappeared.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I loved her in Being Mary Jane, I only stopped watching because it really hit too close to home sometimes, I've been in some of the same scenarios as the character and I do not want to relive it. It was a well done show.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    snickers lol

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    why would he asked to be benched behind that? I'm sure she discussed what was in the book before she put it out! he asked to be benched cause he has bad knees and just doesn't have it any more

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    HORRIBLE acting. I wonder if she had a run in with Harvey Weinstein. I can't see how she's acting and getting work consistently.

  • gail jones

    I was referring to the fact that she 'acts' the same way in every role she plays. Same demeanour.

  • Sugar Collins

    Lol! The witches and vampires trilogy was raunchy too. I remember reading it as a kid like

  • Junkanoo

    Same for a lot of these so called actors like Jennifer Lawerance shes another one who cant act she had to have slept her way to the top

  • Ebony N’ Sweet

    lol.. sandra he asked to start off the bench because JR Smith is better ha

  • Bashi22

    She love athletes basketball ? or football ? those are the guys for her. She was in some cheer leader competition show which she sucks in that as well


    ????? ROTFL?????????.

  • parisjok

    u blind. no wy does she look the same. not bad but not the same

  • Toni Wiggins-Sorzano

    I wasn't sure if it was true that BMJ was ending. I'm not mad bcuz I hated this season. I hated the rushed story lines. I hated the way the made BMJ character become.

  • Mrs Mary

    please dont are going to ruin it because you cant act you have the same stank attitude in every role just like your real nasty evil and rude as hell on and off camera....OAN yeah you gonna need more than wine honey......LOL for that stank a#@ attitude

  • sunni_daze

    You hating. That woman still looks the same.
