Terrence J has come a long way since his days as a VJ on BET’s “106 & Park.” Since he left the show in December 2012, the former host replaced Ryan Seacrest as an anchor on “E! News,” wrote and released his first book “The Wealth of my Mother’s Wisdom,” and held supporting roles in movies like “Baggage Claim” and “Think Like A Man Too.” Now with “The Perfect Match,” Terrence adds executive producer and leading man to his list of credentials. The Billie Woodruff directed romantic comedy also stars Lauren London and Cassie Ventura, who Terrence had quite a bit to say about in a recent interview with Wendy Williams.
In “Perfect Match,” Terrence plays the role of Charlie, a Hollywood agent who’s less than optimistic about relationships. After making a bet with his two best friends, Charlie agrees to date just one woman for at least a month. His friends are certain that after one month he’s bound to get attached to whomever he’s dating. Charlie on the other hand is certain that all their bet will prove is that he really isn’t relationship material. When he meets the beautiful and mysterious Eva (played by Cassie), Charlie begins questioning his stance on relationships. According to Terrence, playing Charlie gave him a chance to flex his acting muscles in a way his other roles never pushed him to do. In his first leading role, Terrence is receiving great feedback from his co-producers, peers and his director Bille Woodruff, who feels Terrence “has a good chance of a nice career ahead of him as a leading man.”
