In a 2008 interview, Blair Underwood detailed his relationship with DaCosta in a way previously reported by theGrio. He commented on how she taught him to “listen to her when she spoke to me.”
It may be challenging for guys to determine what role to play. I was vying for influence in the life of the woman I was about to marry. What entailed being her significant other? That evening, I understood what this meant: I needed to pay attention to what she said.
“Attempting to solve her problems gave me a false sense of power, and when I gave her unsolicited advice, I insulted a strong woman who was capable of managing her own life. She did not anticipate that I would always have a response for her, so I was also relieved. She did not visit me for a favor. Underwood stated that she merely required a shoulder to weep on.
ABC has begun production on an L.A. Law sequel starring Underwood, as revealed by Deadline. According to Blair Underwood, who is reprising the role, lawyer Jonathan Rollins has “gone from idealistic to more conservative as he contends with millennial JJ Freeman to determine the best course forward for the corporation to promote political and legal change.”
According to The Wrap, Underwood will appear in the revival alongside “a new breed of young lawyers.” Marc Guggenheim will collaborate with Ubah Mohamed of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow to develop the sequel’s script and serve as executive producer. According to theGrio, the 2012 war film Red Tails, which was based on the Tuskegee Airmen, was directed by Anthony Hemingway.
