Comedian & Actor Brandon T. Jackson Lands Another Film

We just discovered that actor and comedians Brandon T. Jackson has just landed another new film. We hear that Jackson just recently signed on to star in the new film titled Percy Jackson as he will play Grover, a satyr.

The film is about a young boy discovers he's the descendant of a Greek god and sets out on an adventure to settle an on-going battle between the gods. The story kicks off with Percy becoming the prime suspect when Zeus' master lightning bolt is stolen. The boy has just 10 days to find and return the stolen property to bring peace to the warring gods.

In case you didn’t know, in Greek mythology, satyrs were a troop of male companions of Pan and Dionysus. They are often associated with sex drive and vase-painters often portrayed them with perpetual erect penises. So as you may know, this role should not be mistaken as The Donkey in Shrek. Our sources have told us that Jackson has several other projects on tap, and is very excited about this role.

The film will be directed by Chris Columbus (of The Harry Potter films) and produced by Fox 2000, and the studio is looking to place a number of big-name actors in the smaller roles of the gods. Production is scheduled to begin in April in Europe.
