Where are they now? #7

Where is Teresa Randle? She’s talented and just simply drop dead, makes-you-weak-in-the-knees gorgeous. She had a good run during the mid to late 90′s with Bad Boys, Spawn and of course Girl 6. Then she sort of disappeared, but came back a few years later with a thankless but luckily brief role in Bad Boys II (one of the WORST films made in this decade), and a few other minor films, then sort of faded again.

She then appeared very briefly for only two episodes as the asst. D.A. on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, which she took over when Nona Gaye (who originally was cast in the part, after Courtney Vance was dumped from the show) was fired after the first day of shooting.

According to imdb.com, she then appeared in several episodes of State of Play which I’d never heard of until I found out it was a series on Lifetime, a short film Ink, interestingly written and directed by Marianne Jean-Baptiste of Mike Leigh’s Secret and Lies, and CBS’ Without A Trace and this year just recently completed a role in the film, Shit Year, which I have to admit doesn’t sound too promising.

Not listed is her role in the straight to DVD film Operation Eagle One: Crash Point which came out last year.

Hey to all your filmmakers out there. Next time you’re thinking about how you can get Beyonce in your next film, think about Teresa first. And she can speak too!

  • You forgot to mention that she’s over 40. That, more than enything else, is probably the reason we haven’t been blessed with her onscreen presence for so long.

  • I love Theresa Randle, she was the best in Girl 6 and still gorgeous! I’ve talked about her ad nauseum so I’m spare you all.

    I loved her scene from “Jungle Fever”. Thats a cool & refined dame.

  • I’ve actually once had this desire to remake “Girl 6.” I think it was one of Spike’s most original ideas, and an under-rated film IMHO. And the Prince soundtrack was great.

    Although I also know that the concept could produce an improved film than we got.

  • Theresa Randle! That’s a name I haven’t heard in a while. I was in love with her back in the day. I had her Girl 6 poster on my dorm wall and had the soundtrack in my cd player.

    I wish I knew where she was. I really enjoyed her work.

  • She also appeared in an infamous YouTube interview a few years ago, looking justifiably embarrassed by the buffoonish antics of her boyfriend “FamBody” (formerly known as Father MC).

    HA! Sooo funny yet soo TRUE!

    I MISS seeing that beautiful face and witnessing her phenomenal ability on screen. I remember her from Malcolm X, Sugar Hill & Space Jam (yes, I’m not ashamed to say that I actually liked that movie!).
    She’s an amazing talent and ever so gorgeous! Almost sickening! She’s most definitely an under-rated actress….(sigh)
