LOS ANGELES, CA, December 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Brooke (Vivica A. Fox) and Roger (Ricco Ross) are working as graphic designers in a soon-to-be-merged company when their boss (Eric Roberts) suggests a marriage of convenience for the sake of the company.
Brooke would then be able to upstage her sister who just announced her engagement to Brooke's ex-boyfriend during the holidays with family. What starts out as a cordial, but somewhat cool arrangement, suddenly turns into something more as the two designers spend time together.
Actor Ricco Ross, who plays Roger, is best known for his role as Private Ricco Frost in Aliens, a character James Cameron wrote specifically for him.
Ross has his own story about a marriage of convenience:
"After graduating for UCLA with a masters degree, I worked in Hollywood for a year and was recurring on Hill Street Blues as a gang member. Afterwards, I couldn't get a job playing anything but gang members. I moved to London and studied Shakespeare for a year and after I used my English accent to start working as an English actor in England for the next four years. I didn't have work papers so that was my only choice. At one point a friend and I went and registered to get married "for convenience". She was a good friend and I was afraid she would someday regret it so we didn't go through with it. Now some decades later, here I am, back in Hollywood, playing an Englishman in a movie, who is getting married for convenience! Talk about coming full circle!"
"A Husband for Christmas" airs on December 24, 2016 on ION TV, 5:00/4:00 Central.
