Van Peebles best known for New Jack City and Baadasssss! is starring in the upcoming Spike TV movie Sharpshooter, and while its another serious screen role, Van Peebles admits that when the cameras are off, he and his five kids veg out on fluff TV almost.
He says, I like movies with social commentary, like New Jack City, but at home we watch some mind-numbing sþþt like everyone else. Its like junk food theres television junk food and food thats better for you. But I was watching some jackass TV, as I call it, and I decided I dont need to pay the cable bill for that.
Instead of vegging out with terrible TV, Van Peebles is producing and directing Bring Your A Game, a documentary film about the educational crisis in America, which should give viewers and his own children something more substantial to snack on.
Sharpshooter premieres this Sunday (Jan. 27) on Spike TV.
