Actor Denzel Washington, on screens this week as legendary New York outlaw Frank Lucas in American Gangster, will have another film in theaters this December. The Great Debaters not only features the Oscar winner as its star, but he directed the project as well.

The Great Debaters tells the true story of a small-town, African-American college debate team in 1935 that went all the way to the national championships against Harvard. Washington plays a professor at the college.

The cast also features Forest Whitaker, Kimberly Elise, Jurnee Smollet, and Jermaine Williams, among others.

“I’m very happy with the film,” Washington told Jam! Showbiz. “It’s a completely different film than (American Gangster). It’s a great movie for these young actors.”

The film is being produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions.



Michael Jackson stands to lose his Neverland Ranch in California unless he pays back a $23 million loan in the next 90 days. Jackson’s attorneys filed papers titled “Notice of Default and Election to Sell” in Santa Barbara county in California on October 22nd. The loan default comes as the Prince of Bahrain is suing Jackson for $7 million, and although he has settled several other lawsuits, they have yet to be paid off. Fox News speculates that Jackson could file for bankruptcy within the next 90 days to prevent future disasters.



Oprah Winfrey begged for forgiveness from South African parents on Sunday after a slew of physical and sexual abuse claims at her all-girls school in South Africa emerged. The New York Daily News reports that in recent weeks, several allegations made by students at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls claim that school matrons fondled and beat the female students. One incident claims a matron allegedly grabbed a girl by the throat and tossed her into a wall. The allegations came to light after a student ran away from the school’s dorms, reportedly because the abuse had become overwhelming.



Singer and songwriter Angie Stone’s latest CD, The Art Of Love And War, leaps onto the Billboard 200 chart at Number 11, her highest chart position to date. The debut also signals a high for Concord Records’ relaunched Stax label, which had been dormant for 34 years. Interest in Stone’s latest album is spurred by the single “Baby” featuring soul veteran Betty Wright. The tune is Number One on the urban adult chart. Recently, Stone explained her songwriting process: “When I go into my writing mode it happens spontaneously. It has to be something that drives me to do it, either I’m walking down the street and something I see gets me going, or if I’m listening to music I just instinctively start writing. And what comes to mind is crazy. People think I just write about everyday life situations, but I’m a character in itself, so it’s so many other things going on that I could write about. ”
