Lamman Rucker and Darrin Henson give the scoop on ‘Black Coffee’


Coffee comes in all flavors and hues, and this movie serves up variety and various flavors of drama and comedy all poured into one cup.

Image Entertainment releases on DVD and digital download the film Black Coffee starring Lamman Rucker (“Why Did I Get Married?”), Erica Hubbard (“Let’s Stay Together”), Darrin Dewitt Henson (“Stomp the Yard”), Gabrielle Dennis (“The Game”) and Christian Keyes (“Let’s Stay Together”) on April 8.

In the film, Robert (Darrin Henson) picks the wrong time to meet his soul mate! After being fired from his own father’s company, he feels like his luck has run out —until Morgan (Gabrielle Dennis) enters his life. Just as things start to heat up between them, trouble brews as Morgan’s ex-husband (Lamman Rucker) vows to get her back and Robert’s gold-digging ex-girlfriend (Erica Hubbard) returns with an agenda of her own. With the help of his cousin (Christian Keyes), Robert’s about to find out how much good can come out of a bad situation in this charming romantic comedy that’s good to the last drop.

Henson explains that the character he portrays, Robert, is vulnerable and goes through a lot in this film.

“He is subjected to dishonesty and a chaotic eccentric lifestyle from his girlfriend. He is taken advantage of in many ways and has to grow rapidly in order to find himself in a position of power. Simply, he has to earn his rites of passage as a man,” Henson said.

Rucker is confident that audiences will definitely learn something from the film.

“It is an adorable movie,” Rucker said, “with positive images. Anybody who has been through adversity in their job and in life will be able to really take something away from it.”

Next for Rucker is the movie “Where’s the Love” airing on UP TV later this month. He also appears in TNT’s new pilot “Guilt by Association.”

Henson stars in and produces the film, “Four of Hearts” out this June, and his new book “Ain’t That the Truth” is available at

The Black Coffee DVD has a suggested retail value of $27.97 and will include behind-the-scenes footage and a photo gallery.
