We are all for growth and expansion here at HeyMikeyATL, and are always elated when a great light flexes even more of her talent. That is exactly what Toni Bryce, a popular Atlanta actress, is doing with her latest venture, an independent film entitled “Best Thing I Never Had!”

Toni Bryce as “Brittany”

The film centers on the love story between a Black man and woman–with a twist. Toni states, “.. this relationship is no ordinary relationship. Dante, a Black Cis and Heterosexual identifying Man is openly dating Brittany, a Black Trans and Heterosexual identifying Woman. ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ chronicles the journey of their love story as Brittany learns to overcome her apprehension of whether Dante’s intentions are pure or evil. The story shows what it’s like for the two as they deal with raising children, reconciling friendships, and yearning for family acceptance while overcoming societal judgement and criticism. With the many challenges faced and bumps in the road, will this love last or will it all be a fairytale?”

We have to say based on the synopsis we are highly intrigued by this story. It is out of the ordinary, and with society seemingly becoming more receptive to transgender rights and people, it makes the story timely and necessary for representation and perspective. Toni went on to reveal she wrote the film to show everyone deserves love and to experience something real. This project was formed from an Instagram post I made where I was just speaking on my opinion that the sex work narrative is old and played out. I wanted to see something more. So, the amazing artist, Di Thomas saw my story, screenshot it and sent it to Onyx Keesha and Coley. They wanted to meet with me, we met and I told them where I was speaking from and shared my own experiences…BUT the kicker was, they wanted me write the script because it’s coming from my own experiences…then not only that, but they suggested that I star in it as well. And now a year later, we have ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ short film.”

Toni hopes people will see the film as a real love story, like any other cinematic portrayal of love. I truly want people to see a story where they get to experience and journey with these characters where love between ‘othered’ people is normalized and OK. A story that gives men that are Trans-Affirming or Attracted a visual display of what their own happiness could look like if they’d only live for themselves and not what everyone else thinks about their happiness. A big part of my own reasons for being single is because my worth and value don’t matter to the men pursuing me because society tells them that they’re gay and less of a man for dating me. Where everything is an effort and a life changing decision that they don’t feel they’re ready to make. Thus, I’m hidden in a room and only explored sexually. My health, mental stability, goals, passions, career, desires, and etc are left outside the door for the sake of ‘I’m ready to nut!'”
Production of “Best Thing I Never Had” seems to be well under way as the film has already been cast, and they have already had their first table read. Check them out below:

We are really happy for Toni and excited to see this cast in action. Congratulations Toni on this project and all your future endeavors. It is needless to say, but your 2020 is shaping out to be “lit!”

“Justice League” actor Ray Fisher, who was offered a cameo role last June to appear as Cyborg in “The Flash” solo movie, publicly stated he did not want to be involved with the project via Twitter, hence the character of Cyborg has been written out of the screenplay and will not be recast, according to insiders with knowledge of the situation.

Fisher publicly resigned from the role last week in his continuing beef with DC Films President Walter Hamada, who is overseeing “The Flash.” The actor tweeted on Dec. 30, “Walter Hamada is the most dangerous kind of enabler. He lies, and WB PR’s failed Sept. 4th hit-piece sought to undermine the very real issues of the Justice League investigation.”

Fisher added in his tweet, “I will not participate in any production associated with him.” Of note, Hamada did not oversee the “Justice League” production and was not the head of DC Films at the time, nor was he employed during the film’s initial release.

Hamada first joined DC Films back in 2018 and lead the division to the release of its highest-grossing film to date, 2018’s “Aquaman,” which banked over $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office. On Tuesday, it was announced that Hamada had reupped his deal as president until 2023. Fisher called the news “reactionary” in a tweet later that day.

We hate to see Ray Fisher leave the DCEU; but as fanboys we hate to see Cyborg will not be appearing in The Flash film. As we posted in a previous article there are a number of young Black actors who should have been recast for this role, even if it was just a cameo.

As you may recall, Ray has been quite vocal with his distaste for the executives and directors over the superhero films at Warner Bros.; alleging racism, favortism, and non-professionalism.

There is no news yet in who they may be eyeing for Cyborg, but it will be necessary. The hero has come to prominence over the years as a mainstay of The Justice League and was set to have a standalone film in the coming years.

Superhero roles are quite coveted in Hollywood nowadays. Here is a short list of who we think would make a great candidate for Victor Stone/Cyborg:

Daniel Ezra

Daniel Ezra plays “Spencer James” on The CW’s “All-American.” There he plays a gifted football player, something Victor Stone was before his accident spurred his father to save his life with cybernetics. Daniel definitely would bring some serious muscle to this hero.

da'vinchi

Da’Vinchi

Da’Vinchi is an amazing young actor with the looks and physique to play Cyborg. Like Daniel Ezra he too plays a gifted football, and on Freeform’s grown-ish he was basketball star, “Cash Mooney.” We stan for Da’Vinchi he’d be bring some rather suave and debonair qualities to Cyborg.

Niles Fitch

Niles Fitch’s fame hails from being the teen and young adult version of “Randal Pearson” from NBC’s hit series, This Is Us. Niles has already played a superhero of sorts in Disney’s “Second Born Royals” and definitely can do all the athletic feats it requires to be Cyborg!

[Reese] Witherspoon will return as the starring role [of “Elle Woods”] and will produce the film through her Hello Sunshine production company, alongside returning producer Marc Platt. While no director nor other returning cast members have been announced (although Luke Wilson has told us he’s ready for the call), we know that TV comedy writers extraordinaire Dan Goor and Mindy Kaling will be writing the script together.

We are ecstatic about the news of a new sequel for the Legally Blonde franchise! We hope all the cast members will return, especially Jennifer Coolidge. A few ladies from the cast reunited virtually to raise money for a noteworthy cause.
