It seems that the casting train for Alonge Hawes’s Jaro Media presented series ‘Silver & Gold’ is continuing full steam ahead. Julian Robinson (Black On Both Sides) Joshua Quinn (Hop) and Angela Van Tassel (Black On Both Sides) have all signed on for the series, joining previously announced stars Quentin Williams (Blue Collar Hustle) and Brittaney Traylor (Black On Both Sides).
‘Silver & Gold’, which Jaro Media has described as a “blend of comedy, action, drama, and Afro-futurism set against the backdrop of Atlanta’s criminal underground”; is created, written, and directed by Hawes. It has been set for a release this fall on the platform.
Julian Robinson most recently co-starred alongside Hawes in the critically acclaimed series ‘Black On Both Sides’, which ran for two seasons on Seeka.TV. ‘Black On Both Sides’ was named Best Web Series by the Global Film Festival Awards for its first season. Robinson made his screen debut when he was tapped by Hawes to appear in the second season of the acclaimed web series ‘Blue Collar Hustle’, which ran for two seasons on both Seeka.TV and Kweli TV.
Joshua Quinn, a relative newcomer, is best known for starring in the short film ‘Hop’. He will also appear in the upcoming television series ‘Tree Of Life’ and most recently has starred in various stage plays produced by Aurora Theatre and Actor’s Express. Quinn is repped by STW Talent Agency.
Angela Van Tassel most recently co-starred alongside Hawes and Robinson in both seasons of ‘Black On Both Sides’. She also starred in various roles onstage in productions by Gwinnett Classic Theatre and the Play ‘20th Century Blues’ produced by Live Arts Theatre in late 2019. Van Tassel is repped by Barbara Garvey of East Coast Talent Agency.
