Two weeks ago, Erykah Badu graced the steps of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in a custom Thom Browne ensemble for The Met Gala. Last Friday, the undisputed Queen of Dallas seduced viewers at Rihanna’s 3rd annual Savage x Fenty fashion show. Badu walked the stage in a Cold-Hearted Snake High-Neck Lace Catsuit (available for purchase on Savage’s website) to a sensual mix of “Love of My Life” with additional vocals from Common and Busta Rhymes.
It’s Jonathan Majors’ world—we’re just living in it. And loving it. Yesterday, Netflix released the official trailer for The Harder They Fall, a Black western film, that includes a celebrity ensemble of Regina King, Idris Elba, Lakeith Stanfield, Delroy Lindo and Dallas’ very own Jonathan Majors. Majors, who grew up in Cedar Hill and Duncanville, plays the foil to Elba’s nefarious troop of outlaws.
He had a wildly successful breakout: there was his critically acclaimed performance in HBO’s Lovecraft Country, but before that came Talbot’s independent film The Last Black Man in San Francisco (read my review here; Talbot personally messaged me a thank you note on Instagram). This year, you saw him debut in Disney+’s Loki as “He Who Remains,” known to comic book fans, as Kang The Conqueror. (P.S.: Kang is the next big villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe). Majors is singlehandedly representing Dallas’ cultural arts scene on the global stage.
The Harder They Fall releases on November 3. If you are subscribed to FrontRow’s newsletter, we will be discussing the film.
