Orlando Jones will star in the indie dramedy Misconceptions, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Directed by Ron Satlof from a script he wrote with Ira Pearlstein, the story centers on a religiously conservative married woman from the South who receives a message from God telling her to act as a surrogate mother for two gay men.
Jones will play Terry, the hopeful parent who comes to the woman’s home to micromanage her pregnancy and in the process causes havoc.
A.J. Cook (CBS’ “Criminal Minds”) will play Miranda, the woman who decides to carry the child for the gay couple.
The film also stars Sarah Carter, Sam Ball, David Sutcliffe and David Moscow, who will play Jones’ life partner.
