More comedians in Black Dynamite!

An eagle eye tells me that you can see comedian Baron Vaughn as Black Dynamite's brother in the upcoming feature film, Black Dynamite, which premieres at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. Watch the R-rated "red band" trailer for Black Dynamite here. I believe Baron is "a mean dude" in this retro-Blaxploitation flick. The cast also features Arsenio Hall as Tasty Freeze, Nicole Sullivan as Patricia Nixon, Tommy Davidson as Cream Corn, and Phil Hughes as as Saheed. Further fun fact: This also is Ars Nova's first feature film as a production company.

From the official trailer on YouTube: "This is the story of 1970s African-American action legend BLACK DYNAMITE. The Man killed his brother, pumped heroin into local orphanages, and flooded the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor. Black Dynamite was the one hero willing to fight him all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House."
