By

After his latest stint in Avengers: Endgame, actor Don Cheadle is set to star in a movie that he will produce himself. The movie, which is entitled Prince of Darkness, will portray the inspiring story of the first Black millionaire, Jeremiah G. Hamilton.

Cheadle will be teaming up once again with Steven Baigelman, who co-wrote the Miles Ahead screenplay with him in 2015. This time, Baigelman will write the script for the movie adapted from Shane White’s book Prince of Darkness: The Story of Jeremiah G. Hamilton, Wall Street’s First Black Millionaire which won the 2015 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic Best Book Prize.

Hamilton, who escaped from Haiti in 1828, became a successful Wall Street financier in less than a decade.


He worked with white people in the business world, married a white woman, bought a mansion in rural New Jersey, and owned railroad stock on trains he was not legally allowed to even ride. He reportedly accumulated about $2 million until his death in 1875. Hamilton became the richest Black man in the U.S. as he braved the norm during that time. The inspiring story that will be adapted to film is expected to bring more awareness about his life and how became known as the Prince of Darkness.

Kristoff St. John, one of the few black actors on daytime television for many years, sadly passed away on Feb. 3 at the age of 52.

Most people knew him for his portrayal of “Neil Winters” on the “Young and Restless” daytime soap opera –  a role that he played since 1991, which earned him 9 Daytime Emmy Award nominations. He also won 10 NAACP Image Awards.

TMZ.com reported that the actor was treated at a California hospital in January for depression. His son, Julian, also died in 2014 from mental illness. It’s not clear the cause of death, but authorities pronounced St. John dead on the scene.

St. John started acting as a kid and starred in other roles, such as “The Bad News Bears.” and “Charlie & Company.”

After his son’s death, his ex-wife and international boxer, Mia St. John, started El Saber Es Poder (Knowledge Is Power) Foundation to provide resources for those suffering from mental health issues. St. John was recently engaged to model Kseniya Mikhaleva.

In 2017, around the third anniversary of his son’s death, Kristoff threatened to kill himself, prompting police to place the actor under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.
