Morris Chestnut “Rosewood,” Cancelled

By  |  0 Comments

“Rosewood,” Morris Chestnut starred in the crime drama as pathologist Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr., where its time slot was before Empire on Fox, then the execs moved the show from the Wednesday time slot to Friday evenings in its second season. The show has now been cancelled, while I love Morris Chestnut, he is a phenomenal actor and finer than wine could ever be, Rosewood was not my favorite show for him. I struggled to watch it every week and it never really grabbed me the way Empire has done and still continues to capture my attention.

I really hate to see him without a stable drama series but I’m pretty sure he won’t be absent from our lives for long. He is definitely a talented actor and boy is he great to look at, he hasn’t aged, he still looks as young as he did when he was in the movie, “The Best Man.” Yesss, please film another sequel to “Best Man,” and make this the third and final one.

Morris Chestnut went to Instagram to announce the news that his show was cancelling.

‘I am very grateful about the part that everyone took in Rosewood’s journey, because everyone was truly an integral part; the writers who crafted great story-lines, the actors who brought these stories to life, the production crew who sustained the show’s infrastructure, and the terrific fans who embraced this phenomenon and became just as much a part of Rosewood as anyone else. FOX provided a platform for a show that made strides in diversity and the positive images it projected as all-inclusive. We were able to peer into the lives of characters who displayed their hopes, dreams, courage and fears. Rosewood also helped reinforce a newer definition of Family, as a group of people who most care for and support one another. The #Rosewood family, itself was an Extremely Special group of people who’ll be friends forever. This is not only a part of the industry, it’s a part of life. When one door closes, two more can open… Thank you all for your continued #onelove and support. See you back on the screen, soon. Big and Small. #PEACE – MC’

The sexy fine a$$ actor came to our attention in the 1991 film Boyz n the Hood where he played a young father and an aspiring professional football player growing up in the hood. He has appeared in several films and on several television series, including his latest role as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. in the Fox TV series which has now been cancelled.

In 1999, Morris Chestnut starred in “The Best Man,” with Taye Diggs and Nia Long, as a professional football player on the eve of his wedding he finds out his best friend slept with his then girlfriend who he was marrying and his best man who was the best friend wrote a book about the incident. The Best Man did well at the box office and had high reviews, it was a great a movie. Morris Chestnut earned an NAACP Image Award nomination for his role in the movie and his career catapulted with a number of movies and drama series.

People Magazine named Morris Chestnut as one of the “Sexiest Men Alive” for 2015 and they never lied. Its 2017 and this man seems to get better with time, he is still the sexiest man alive.

The Best Man returned with The Best Man Holiday and to prepare for his role as NFL player, Lance Sullivan, he had to get back into shape. Everyone was so impressed by his cut body that it led to the actor along with celebrity fitness trainer Obi Obadike’s, co-writing a health and fitness book called “The Cut”. Their book was published on April 18, 2017, contains exercise drills, as well as healthy recipes, to help the reader lose weight and keep it off.

Morris Chestnut has been married to Pam Chestnut since 1995 and they have two children; a son, Grant Chestnut born in 1997, and a daughter, Paige Chestnut born in 1998. We are looking forward to watching Morris Chestnut move forward to his next movie or drama series. This is a man who will always keep a job on television or in the movies. We hated for Rosewood to end but that role just wasn’t him.
