Mike is currently shooting the Starz series Survivor's Remorse produced LeBron James and Mike O'Malley. The show follows Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher), a basketball star in his early 20s who is thrust into the limelight after signing a multimillion-dollar contract with a pro team. Epps plays Cam's 'Uncle Julius,' who moves from the Dorchester projects to an Atlanta mansion with his family after Cam gets a big pro contract. Although Uncle Julius loves the perks of success, he still tries to keep the family on point with his guidance and wisdom.
He recently completed an arch on the BET show Being Mary Jane and the Universal feature Term Life starring opposite Vince Vaughan and Hallie Steinfield. The film tracks Nick Barrow (Vaughn), who takes his estranged daughter (Steinfeld) on the lam when a heist goes south and he takes out a life insurance policy on himself that doesn't take effect for 21 days. Mike plays a dirty cop who is trying to frame Vaughan's character.
This summer he will shoot the HBO bio-pic Bessie based on Bessie Smith, played by Queen Latifah. The film chronicles how Smith overcame her tempestuous personal life to become one of the most acclaimed performing and recording artists of the 1920s and 30s, earning the nickname Empress of the Blues. Mike plays Richard Morgan, a bootlegger and romantic interest to Bessie Smith. He is also currently developing the script Any Means Necessary for Sony pictures with Neal Moritz attached to produce. He will star opposite Marlon Wayans about a two brothers- one a cop and one a criminal.
