Aisha Tyler has added to what already has been a very busy year for her with roles in a Lifetime movie and an indie feature. Tyler, recurring on CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Fox's 24 and a lead in CBS' John Gray pilot, is set to star opposite Raven Symone in the Lifetime film tentatively titled For One Night and has joined Milla Jovovich, Angus Macfadyen and Stephen Dorff in Mobius Entertainment's indie .45. For One Night, slated start to production next month in New Orleans, centers on a black teenager (Symone) who, with the help of a newspaper reporter (Tyler), braves decades of segregation to stage the first interracial high school prom in the history of their small town. The project is produced by von Zerneck/Sertner Films in association with RES IPSA Media Inc. Written and to be directed by Gary Lennon, .45 is described as an erotic drama set in the seamy and edgy underworld of New York's Hell's Kitchen, where a Bonnie and Clyde-like couple turn on each other. Tyler will play a court-appointed social worker who interacts with Jovovich's character. Filming is scheduled to begin this week in Toronto. CBS' untitled John Gray drama pilot, in which Tyler stars opposite Jennifer Love Hewitt, is based on James Van Praagh's psychic work. Tyler's casting in the project, which is in contention for fall, stems from her talent deal with the network inked in October (HR 10/19). Tyler is repped by Endeavor, ROAR and attorney John Meigs.
