In preparation for season two of “Survivors Remorse,” a screening event was held in Atlanta.

Actor and funny man Mike Epps and the creator of Starz’s hit show “Survivor’s Remorse” started quite a stir on the red carpet at the Regal Cinema in Atlanta. Epps was joined by the rest of the cast including Tichina Arnold, Erica Ash, Ronreaco Lee, Teyonnah Parrish, and some of the producers. I was hoping Lebron James, executive producer alongside Mike O’Malley, showed up but he didn’t. We did, however, get a chance to chat with O’Malley, who’s also the creator of “Survivor’s Remorse.”

O’Malley spoke of the awesome job each actor was doing in carrying the roles outlined for them in the script. He spoke about Tichina Arnold showing up for her audition in character, even puffing on a cigarette as she attempted to sell herself for the part. O’Malley was very impressed with her audition.

Concerning other actors, during the Q&A, he said, “Ronreaco Lee was meant for this role; he came in and nailed it and we knew right away we had found our man. As for Mike Epps, well he didn’t even have to audition. We sent his agent the script and then we begged him to come on board.”

Jessie Usher:

Lee plays an important lead role as the manager Cam hired to ward off the Lions and keep Cam living up to his agreement.
