Mo'Nique's Lands Morris Chestnut & David E. Talbert For Late Nite Show

It looks like Mo’nique is pulling out all the stops for her new late night show on Black Entertainment Television.

As we previously reported, the Queen of Comedy will headline The Mo’Nique Show, a late night talk show premiering October 5th as part of BET’s new fall lineup.

Last week, word trickled down on some of the guests she is planning on having, and last week’s big bomb shell was news of an entire show dedicated to Arsenio Hall, and his years as a late night host.

Today, our sources have discovered that she is stepping up to the plate to hit another home run. This time, Mo’Nique has strategically landed Morris Chestnut and David E. Talbert just in time as they are launching the media campaign for the DVD release of Talbert’s blockbuster play Love In The Nick of Tyme. It seems Chestnut and Talbert will be featured on multiple segments of the show which will be dedicated to the play, their working relationship, upcoming projects, and Chestnut’s theatrical stage debut in Love In The Nick Of Tyme.

Love In The Nick Of Tyme is set in a salon on the South Side of Chicago and is a magical story of love lost and found. The cast also includes R&B singer Avant, TV actress Ellia English of The Jamie Foxx Show fame, former American Idol contestant Trenyce, and singer Vivian Green who penned the music.
