The newest series from Alonge Hawes seems to have a rather eclectic cast of characters. A string of what has been billed as “character introduction teasers” have slowly lifted the curtain on what we can expect from the upcoming caper series. Following the introductions of sexy, swindling couple Charles Goldar (Quentin Williams) & Bahiya Payne (Brittaney Traylor), laid back smoker Aiyden Booker (Julian Robinson) and Happy-Go-Lucky gamer/hacker Cierra Valentine (Shani Hawes), the latest character visual introduces us to Sosa Gerena, played by Roberto Cruz Jr.
The 40 second clip, titled “Renegade Czar,” shows Cruz’s Gerena sitting in a room apparently holding court amongst a group of standing subordinates; adding an air of seriousness and gravitas that hadn’t been present in the more lighthearted teasers proceeding it. Check out the clip below.
Roberto Cruz Jr, a frequent collaborator of Hawes’s, previously starred and produced on Hawes’s debut digital series Blue Collar Hustle and co-starred in the digital series Black On Both Sides. Cruz Jr. was bestowed an Award Of Merit from The Southern Shorts Film Awards in 2017 for his production work on Blue Collar Hustle’s first season. Cruz Jr. is repped by Sourgang Entertainment.
Silver & Gold will premiere this Fall on Jaro Media. It is created, directed, written, and executive produced by Hawes through his company A Million Stories One Pen Productions. Jamal McClendon, Cordarol Sanders, Shani Hawes, Joshua Dennard, Quentin Williams, and Rodderick Fedd serve as producers.
