LisaRaye, who played “Diamond” in the film Player’s Club has finally responded to Draya Michele on who should play her character.
Draya Michele caused an intense online debate recently. After stating that if a remake of the classic 90s film “The Players Club” ever happens, she’s ready to play the lead role. Afterward, LisaRaye, who played the lead role of “Diamond” finally responds with her opinion on the matter.
Late last month, Draya Michele posted a picture of the cast of “The Players Club” with the film’s star, LisaRaye, right in the middle. Her reasoning was to let everyone know that she is committed to securing the role of “Diamond” should a remake ever be made. In addition, posting to Instagram, Michele captions it with “This could be me in a reboot but y’all playing @icecube.” Giving fans a closer look at what she meant, she posts a side-by-side photo of herself next to LisaRaye. Both are seen wearing the pink negligee that “Diamond” wore when she dances for the first time.
During an episode of Fox Soul’s Cocktails With Queens, LisaRaye addressed the matter. There wasn’t an announcement of an official reboot of the Players Club, but if there were to be one, LisaRaye wouldn’t want Draya or Joseline to play her role of Diamond. On the show, LisaRaye said she would rather see a new actress with less experience play the role.
LisaRaye said she would prefer it this way to take off the pressure and criticism a known actress would face. Take a look at a clip down below.
