Paula Patton is set to star in BET's legal thriller 'Sacrifice' that will air on its new streaming service BET+, Deadline.com reports. Paula will play Daniella Hernandez, a highly sought after entertainment lawyer who has a knack for protecting her unscrupulous clients.

Daniella employs the services of a resourceful assistant, a young ex-hacker and a tech genius to help her keep her clients' dirt buried.

The cast also includes 'Empire' actors Juan Antonio as hip artist and mogul Dominiq Mayfield aka Big Dom and V. Bozeman as Tamika Bland, Daniella’s loyal and resourceful assistant; Jackson (Treme) as ex-hacker Steven Somwon, and Marques Houston as Jason Pratt a young Assistant District Attorney.

Sacrifice is executive produced, written, and directed by Chris Stokes (former B2K manager). In addition to acting in the movie, Marques Houston (You Got Served, Sister, Sister, Immature/IMx) is also co-executive producer of the film.

Paula, 43, and Robin Thicke divorced in 2014. They share a son Julian Fuego Thicke, 9.

    What does that neck go with?! All these large necks on these ”Females”!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I’m surprised Paula is sporting this do, why? I respect her for not tweaking, getting fillers, but her hair needs to adjust to her aging! She looks way older than 43.

    I hope all is well with Paula, and she’s not drinking excessively because booze, cigarettes, depression/mental illness and drugs will age you!

    Working on this project for BET with all the show content out there, has her industry rep fallen off?

    Best Wishes to Paula!

  • DeeFromLA

    What the Hell happened. She looks terrible.

  • Facts and Receipts

    and she’s not drinking excessively because booze, cigarettes, depression/mental illness and drugs will age you! <<< so will that cocaine that she reportedly fancies.

    My daddy took me to my first concert which was the SCREAM TOUR with B2K, Bow Wow, and Marcus Houston. I'll never forget Marcus performed the song "Naked" and threw his drawls in the crowd. I tried catching it and my daddy slapped the ish outta my hand. ??? He never took me to anymore concerts after that smh.

  • Bree

    I love me some Marques Houston!! I was in love with Roger on Sister Sister back in the day. Not to mention Immature was one of my favs!!! I'm glad Marques is still working and making dough after all these years.

    I like Paula Patton for some reason although I believe she is often high and on drugs.

    It does. Somebody better alert Shonda Rhimes!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    This woman is a shell of herself...she lost the love of her life over fame from a copywright infringed song...Her and Robin would still be together if it weren't for the fame he got from Blurred Lines...now she out here looking like Samuel Jackson in Black Snake Moan... https://media0.giphy.com/media/QRRMUmMIuEK4M/giphy.gif

    "executive produced, written, and directed by Chris Stokes (former B2K manager)" .

  • Bree

    Wow! Is that why they divorced!? I thought it had something to do with their son. Robin did drugs or had drugs around him. I could be wrong.

  • Notatall

    I like natural hair ?annnnnd I like Paula?but- I'm not to sure about the style of her natural hair ?

  • Bree

    I need to look this up. I never heard about Marques. Were these proven facts or just allegations?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    It's not any more proven than the allegations against Chris Stokes. Raz B said that man molested him and I dont have any reason not to believe him. He married a 19 y.o that he had known since she was a child. Hes sick.

    That was one weird ass outfit though?????

  • LoveChild

    Look like she’s trying to go backwards resembling an African-American when she tried so hard to assimilate with surgery to look white and yeah I know she’s half white I said what I said.

    Oh WOW! I guess Miley gyrating on Robin wasn't apart of the performance. I would have checked Robin and plucked Miley's skank ash!

  • Bree

    I would love to be in the building!

    This is all very unfortunate. I stay away from predators. If this is true, I wonder why Marques would still do business with Chris Stokes. But then again, birds of a feather!

  • LeeSeeCee

  • Guest©

    I'm mixed and I've used sunscreen since a kid. I also believe everyone should use sunscreen because darker skinned ppl are often diagnosed with skin cancer much later than those with lighter skin. I have my body checked every other year by a dermatologist. How many black ppl have had that screening? Please schedule an appt to see a dermatologist. Everyone must be proactive with their healthcare and black ppl are overlooked when it comes to dermatology.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    nah it was the picture of his hand up that women's butt....the act wit Miley was for show and shock value...

  • KcoolMuziq

    But U won't subscribe to the only black app that caters to African American cinema?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It was both of them on that powder...Robin kept getting caught cheating after blurred lines came out....he was caught in a mirror with his hand up the back of a girls dress...the girl admitted they screwed and did coke that night....

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Notatall

    I guess so...lol

  • Dee

    She's beautiful, but her last movie sucked. We walked out and got free passes.

  • Reenaface

    Um, just because I won't support an app, doesn't mean that I don't support black entertainment. I still watch the dang on channel.

  • Dee

    High as a kite?

  • Reenaface

    I liked the movie, I just hated that Omar Epps got killed off.

  • LP

    Her neck is too strong for anything above the shoulders and it looks dry as hell. Why Paula, why? She is gorgeous, but this is one look she cannot pull off!

    They sure do. I think he and Chris have like 5 movies that went straight to Netflix on there right now

  • Shenanigans1

    Oh he does a LOT of movies.

  • Guest©

    If possible, can you do a medical minute on sunscreen and skin cancer concerning ppl of color. It seems black ppl are under the impression that they do not need sunscreen unless they have light skin. Bob Marley died of skin cancer at 36. Unfortunately, blacks are diagnosed with skin cancer at much later stages. I believe it's because they don't think they can get skin cancer and the healthcare field does not provide skin cancer screening for black ppl. Thank you in advance.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Black people have natural UV protection from the sun. It's called melanin. Bob Marley died of bone cancer in his big toe.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Paula look like she still on that stuff...also this perm is not it girl

    I'm saying the same thing everyone else is...her hair looks HORRIBLE! I am so sorry...that is not the curly look you want to have. Her stylist lied to her or hairdresser. Someone lied!

  • fresnostateofmind

    I don't think she was trying to assimilate. Her and Robin were always hollerin' about how black she is. She just looks more racially ambiguous when she has a press and curl.

  • LoveChild

    I’m sorry but I don’t care what you think. My eyes don’t lie to me. Back in the day she just looked like a light skin black girl then she had nose job /plastic surgery so there you go you’re not gonna change my mind.

    I have no idea why people step to my comments trying to change my mind or tell me what they think when I said the opposite just make your own fucking comment.

    Hmmm...Chris Stokes still making movies. Is Surviving Chris Stokes his next movie? Inquiring minds want to know. ?????

  • doriday

    Paula is a black woman. So what's wrong with her natural hair? So she is less attractive now that her hair is not straight?

  • Dreamer

    And BET is a mess cause they already had a legal show last year with “In Contempt” that was left in limbo and wasn’t even properly cancelled just like several of their others shows, smh. I don’t trust them to do television period.

  • Dreamer

    I wouldn’t be surprised. It would explain why he is okay with still doing business to this day with that nasty ass Christopher Stokes. I don’t see why Raz B would lie about something like that. Something is clearly off with him and has been for years.

    You and this gif Coy!! ??? I holler EVERY TIME ?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yeah, I remember the reports, and watching your ex move on, start a new family and probably w/o all the drama she went thru, along with her own issues, you’re probably right, something’s not right!

  • the guest

    She's biracial and rocking her natural hair texture. We should applaud her because Hollywood does not accept mixed women who wear their natural hair.

  • the guest

    She's biracial. She's wearing her biracial natural and she's brave because Hollywood is not accepting of mixed girls not wearing defined curls or straight hair.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • the guest

    She's biracial. Her hair is still naturally straight if she wets it. But if she leaves it dry after a few days she'll have her mixed-fro again.

  • the guest

    Robin and Paula were soulmates. She should have taken him back. Now the new girl is getting the man he was ready to become for Paula after he messed up.

  • the guest

    No, she just didn't wet and style her hair straight. When biracials leave their hair dry it "fros" up. Her hair is straight in that photo, just styled in her mixed-fro.

  • Renee26

    I HOLLERED!!

  • Kree

    If she didn't have a child, I'd swear she was a dude. Broad shoulders, wide neck, large brow....smh!!

  • Miss Lady

    This will be another Z rated BET movie by Chris Stokes. I guess I'll record it, and wait to watch it when I have some unwanted company, and this will surely encourage them to leave.

  • Kree

    Being black is technically being biracial. What do you consider being black is ?! If she was dark as Viola Davis and she had a white mother would you be calling her biracial. First of all people don't go around asking what ethnicity ones parents are. If you walk down the street and you look black, then that's what you are. You know what?! Forget it!!! No one is actually biracial!! Its only one race. People have different ethnicities!!!! https://media3.giphy.com/media/1gEbrbxWanjoIPeTwv/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

    I can appreciate her rocking her natural, but she could have rocked it a little more harder...I mean a different cut or something..cuz this sis is not working for her!

  • Maxx

    It's not that she is not attractive due to the natural, it's the color & the cut IMO

  • Maxx

    I have natural hair & have been natural since it became super popular so for like 15 years not, and I am not feeling Paula's hair. It's not that she is not attractive due to the natural, IT IS THE COLOR & THE CUT THAT IS JUST NOT WORKING FOR HER. Hmmm...maybe it looked better in person? Iano

  • Maxx

    MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY! I really think it is the color that is working against her..It's like she tried to match the color to her skin tone & she should have went darker or red or purple or something besides this ugly sandy colored look

  • Kimberly King

    Agreed. Her makeup and everything else looked elegant. She has a gorgeous smile. But Chile that hair ! Looking like Richard Simmons !

    Paula that hairstyle is not the business & it ages her.
