Megalyn Echikunwoke
(House Of Lies) and Cedric Sanders (10,000 Days) have both booked co-starring roles opposite Steve Zahn in the ABC drama pilot Influence, from Kyle Killen.

Influence centers on the complex relationship between two brothers (one of them played by Zahn) - a bipolar genius and an ex-con - who solve their clients’ problems using motivation and manipulation.

Echikunwoke will play an actress who uses her beauty and acting skills to help the brothers with their schemes, while Sanders will play another member of the scheming team, who's from the hood, with raw talent to spare, which the brothers recognize and feel would be beneficial to their efforts.

    The default lighting of movie or photographic equipment rarely favors those with dark skin. If our picture is taken from the wrong angle, we all have the potential of coming across a little Tyrone Biggums-ish!

    I hope there's money for ChapStick in this show's budget, because bro' is DRY.

    LMAO...y'all ain't right. He's a nice looking brother though. Shea butter is way better than chapstick.
