Xosha Roquemore has been cast as one of 4 leads in an upcoming new MTV series pilot titled Dumb Girls - an ensemble show that "revolves around a group of twentysomethings. It centers on Michelle, who is uber-competent at her job but foolish when it comes to guys. Supported by her stalwart friends Alex, Danny, who admits her likes her more than a friend, and Ian, she mounts a plan to get the guy she likes."

Xosha will play the first of Michelle's "stalwart friends" - Alex.

This may be Xosha's plumpest role to date; prior to this, she played one of Precious' classmates in the award-winning Lee Daniels film of the same name. She's also played bit parts in single episodes of a few TV shows like Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Nurse Jackie.

Production is scheduled to begin next month.

    According to what I read, it's beyond a BBF role and a character that was not written for a Black girl. Alex, her character, is a true ensemble member. I understand the sentiment because that has been the case in so many shows. Here's hoping that MTV is going to change that precedent.

    Though it's seems like a BBF role, glad for her.
