VH1'S NEXT ORIGINAL MOVIE "THE BREAKS" ADDS METHOD MAN TO THE CAST

NEW YORK, NY (June 4, 2015) - VH1's next original movie "The Breaks" adds rapper Method Man to the cast. "The Breaks" will chronicle the journey of Nikki, David and DeeVee, three friends united by their love of hip-hop, as they work to make their big mark in the music industry. The film will travel viewers back to the summer of 1990 in New York City where the music industry's artists and hustlers intersect in the dance clubs and the street corners of the still crime-ridden city. But they will all soon discover lives can be broken as fast as legends can be born.

Method Man joins the cast as Darryl Van Puten, Sr, DeeVee's (Mack Wilds) perennially irritated father. He is a stern, solid man who is unimpressed with DeeVee's efforts to break into the music business. He believes his son needs to be treated with tough-love and give up this rap-thing if he's ever going to get his life together. Method Man is repped by CAA and Smart Girl Productions.

Wood Harris, Mack (Tristan) Wilds, Afton Williamson, David Call and Antoine Harris were previously announced as leads in "The Breaks," which is currently in production now and will premiere late Fall 2015.

"The Breaks" is written and directed by Seith Mann. In addition to Seith Mann, Dan Charnas. Maggie Malina will also serve as executive producers. Darren Goldberg will executive produce for Atlantic Pictures. VH1 executive producers are Susan Levison and Bill Flanagan.
