Although my novel site’s slogan quote and self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts I wrote:

As well, Daniels revealed that he is also writing a role for hip hop artist Common who (along with John Legend) as you all know, just recently won an Oscar for “Glory” from the ‘Selma” soundtrack.
“Oh yeah, for sure…for absolutely sure. We’re gonna have a good time,” confirmed Daniels.
