Actor Omar Epps took two of his three children to the premiere of his new thriller movie, "Trick."
Fans got a special treat when the usually camera-shy Omar Epps showed up at the premiere of his latest movie with two of his children.
Epps is promoting his latest movie, a Halloween-themed thriller called "Trick" that had the audience on the edge of their seats.
Omar had never been involved in a horror movie project before
In "Trick," Omar gives a brilliant performance as a detective who becomes obsessed with tracking down a killer who strikes once a year: on Holloween.
The premiere was at the TCL Chinese 6 Theatre and Omar was accompanied by his two younger children, K’Mari and Amir.
Omar had never been involved in a horror movie project before, and he revealed that he accepted it because he felt it would be a challenge. And of course, Halloween themed horror movies have a tendency to become cult classics.
“This character was a challenge in that I had to keep the character grounded. I mean, we don’t know if what’s happening is supernatural or not. It’s like this surreal circumstance happening, and a man who basically loses himself trying to figure out the puzzle. That was challenging and that really attracted me to the project.”
To judge by the trailer, "Trick" ia a hair-raising experience, but the Epps family walked smiling.
Omar shares daughter K’mari Mae and son Amir. with wife Keisha. His oldest daughter Aiyanna is from a previous relationship, and couldn't be there for her dad.
Omar Epps married Keisha Spivey from the R&B group Total in 2006, and the couple shares two children: daughter K’mari Mae and son Amir.
The oldest is Aiyanna, Omar's daughter from a previous relationship.
Keisha and Omar have known each other for 25 years, but it was only 15 years ago that their romance blossomed.
