Who is Niecy Nash’s agent?!
I am curious because she is getting a lot of roles that don’t fit the box of “black lady sitcom sidekick”. Perhaps her role on “Reno 911” got her noticed and welcomed into the clique of oddball/improv/sketch comedians and comic actors. She is making the right choices, and hopefully her career will keep going for many years to come.
She’s guest starring on “The Mindy Project”.
She has a serious role on HBO’s “Getting On”.
She is the movie “Selma”.
It’s great that she is breaking away from the pack of black actresses who may seem interchangeable. Sherri Shepherd, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kim Whitley, and newcomer Da’vine Joy Randolph.
Niecy Nash, I applaud you for creating a diverse career path. Hopefully you will produce projects and provide opportunities for other actors in the future.
