Larenz Tate has joined the cast of Will Packer’s upcoming film, Girl Trip. The actor joins an all-star lineup that includes Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall and Netflix’s Luke Cage actor Mike Colter.

The film, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, tells the story of four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival and rediscover their sisterhoods and wild sides—enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush. Tate plays Julian, a jazz musician and an old friend of the girls from college, with a potential romantic relationship with Ryan, played by Regina Hall.

In addition to the film, Tate recently starred in NBC’s Game of Silence. In a recent interview with The Root, Tate discussed the upcoming 20th anniversary of Love Jones.
