The latest entry in the Disney+ Voices series sees two of the stars of the Disney+ Original Series Big Shot share their experiences in the industry through the eyes of the Black experience.
- In the latest entry of Disney+ Voices, stars of Big Shot, Yvette Nicole Brown and Monique Green share their thoughts, insight, experiences and expectations in the entertainment industry through the lens of the Black experience.
- The pair can be seen together in the Disney+ Original Series, Big Shot, where Brown can be seen playing Principal Sherilyn Thomas alongside Green’s Olive Cooper.
- In the conversation, Green shares stories about how she was inspired by Phylicia Rashad’s Claire Huxtable in The Cosby Show because she was a real, strong, successful woman.
- The pair, even with Green being substantially younger than Brown, share what they hope their legacy will be to the generations behind them.
- Brown also calls Green “Her little punkin’,” saying that she had been looking forward to sitting down with her for the conversation, and that her day had been made.
- In Big Shot, we see a men’s basketball coach given the chance for redemption after getting ousted from the NCAA with a coaching position at an elite private high school. He soon learns that the teenage players require empathy and vulnerability — foreign concepts for the stoic Coach. By learning how to connect with his players, he starts to grow into the person he’s always hoped to be. The girls learn to take themselves more seriously, finding their footing both on and oﬀ the court. Yvette Nicole Brown plays the stern but loving principal of Westbrook, Sherilyn Thomas. She’s a champion for her students and though tough, has a heart of gold. Monique Green plays Olive Cooper, one of the students who plays on the team, and a “part-time influencer.”
- A previous entry of the Disney+ Voices series saw a Pixar Animator, MontaQue Ruffin, share his experiences and his own personal journey at the legendary animation studio.
- Big Shot is now streaming on Disney+.
