Grammy Award-winning vocalist Norah Jones, who made her motion picture starring debut in My Blueberry Nights, will star in her second motion picture this summer. Jones has a role in a film titled Wah Do Dem (What They Do), which stars fellow musician and New Yorker Sean Bones. Bones, whose real name is Sean Sullivan, plays reggae music and will release a CD this summer that has an appearance by Norah.
Wah Do Dem is set in Jamaica and features Bones on his solitary odyssey after his girlfriend, played by Norah, dumps him days before their departure. The movie features plenty of reggae music and famed Jamaican actor and musician Carl Bradshaw, who appeared in the 1972 movie The Harder They Come with Jimmy Cliff.
Wah Do Dem (What They Do) will make its world premiere in June at the Los Angeles Film Festival.Posted by Brian Soergel at May 11, 2009 4:10 AM
