After a successful run as co-hosts of the highest-rated show, “106 & Park,” on BET, the team of Terrence J. and Rocsi Diaz (both pictured) may be headed for splitsville. Both television hosts have reportedly caught the acting bug and have hopes of landing roles on the big screen, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.
Terrence J., whose real name is Terrence Jenkins, has already gotten his feet wet via a recurring role on the hit “The Game” as “Danté Young,” the younger boyfriend of “Tasha Mack.” The 30-year-old also has a starring role in the Steve Harvey movie, “Think Like a Man.”
Diaz, who has hosted the cable show for nearly seven years, has reportedly landed a role in a yet-unnamed film starring actress Lynn Whitfield. The Latin beauty also appeared in “Gang of Roses 2: The Next Generation,” the sequel to the 2003 western action film that starred Bobby Brown, Stacy Dash, and Lisa Ray.
