Blair Underwood on ‘Bad Hair’ Film; Calls it ‘killer weave’ Satire

Friday on "The Talk," Blair Underwood discusses his new horror film “Bad Hair” and actress Elle Lorraine who plays Anna Bludso. “She’s the star of the show. She’s the protagonist. I’m so happy for her to get this big break doing this film. She gets a job, in like a MTV kind of place at the time, and she's trying to come up through the ranks and work as a young lady. But she has to change her hair in order to do that. She has natural hair, and they want her to have straight hair. That’s processed hair. And it's really her journey," says Underwood. "I play her uncle who kind of speaks to the mythology and the mystery of what's happening in this world... It's a satire, I call it the killer weave. Imagine putting a weave in your hair, and the weave starts killing folks. Let me tell you, Justin Simien, who created ‘Dear White People,’ wrote, directed, produced it. And he told me when we shot this, there's a whole genre of these films. They're called hair possession movies in Asia. I didn't realize that. So to take that and put it in black culture, the way we feel about our hair, come on now."
