Behind The Scenes: Angela Bassett, Samuel L Jackson’s Vogue Photo Shoot
First images of Angela Bassett and Samuel L Jackson on the set of a photo shoot for an upcoming issue of Vogue magazine have been released. Legendary photographer Norman Jean Roy is behind the lens. As you can tell by the vintage 1960s clothing, the shoot is obviously for a story about their upcoming Broadway play ‘The Mountaintop.’
Mountaintop is a play about the night before Martin Luther King Jr.’s tragic assassination. Halle Berry originally landed the part, but was replaced by Bassett after getting into some legal drama with her child’s father.
