JE’CARYOUS JOHNSON IS MAKING A MAJOR MOVIE AND THERE IS A CASTING CALL!
What’s up, everybody?
I know it’s been a while, but I promise you I have a good reason.
For a while I’ve been saying I was going to make Houston the next Hollywood. Get ready because it’s about to go down. My dream of making a movie is about to come true.
There’s no way I would have this opportunity without you. I am not foolish enough to think I’ve reached this point alone. I stopped for a moment to just breathe and reflect on where God has brought me, and it occurred to me I needed to say thank you to my fans—the people who have supported me through the years when the haters were telling me it couldn’t be done.
I also wanted to offer you some encouragement. With all that’s going on in the world, it’s easy to let your current situation weigh you down. I just want you to know where you are now doesn’t determine where you’re going. It’s no reason to stop dreaming. In fact, it’s a bigger reason. There can be no testimony without a test. Whatever you’re going through right now is your test, so just start thanking God in advance for the testimony that is to come.
I’m no different than any of you. I was just a kid who grew up dreaming, and just like my dreams have come true, yours can too—no matter how crazy they may seem or how much you have people in your ear
or laughing in your face, telling you they can’t come true. Even if you’re telling yourself your dreams can’t happen, listen to me: they can. Your dreams can come true.
How do I know? Because I’m living my dream right now. If God did it for me, He’ll do it for you. He’s just cool like that.
Now that God has blessed me, I want to pay it forward and bless some of you.
I’m holding the first casting call for my feature film, Men, Money and Gold Diggers. If you or someone you know has what it takes to be the next big movie star, meet me at Grooves Restaurant and Bar on July 25 from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., and show me what you’ve got.
If you live outside of the Houston area, pack your bags and book your flight. I want to see you too. Don’t let location or lack of resources stop you. Don’t even worry about headshots or résumés—an audition piece will be provided for you. Just show up and show out.
My dreams haven’t come true without much hard work and sacrifice. And they never would have happened if I had second-guessed myself or given up. The film for Men, Money and Gold Diggers has been two years in the making. There are people who said it wouldn’t happen, but I learned a long time ago to stop listening to people and to just trust in God.
If I had listened to people, I would
never have finished high school. Instead I listened to God, and He has opened doors for me no man can open. He can do the same for you. I urge you today to stop living in fear and step out on faith. I’m living my dream. It’s time for you to live yours. Whatever your dream, whatever has kept you from it in the past, this is a new day. This is your opportunity. If you take one step toward making it happen, God will take two.
Until next time, you get busy fulfilling your dreams, and I’m going to handle my business with this film. We’re about to put Houston on the map, y’all.
