In this week’s episode of “Underground,” fans were treated to a flashback sequence that featured none other than Academy Award and Emmy nominee Angela Bassett, playing an early mentor to Ernestine. So how did Bassett end up on the Wgn America drama? All it took was a call from series executive producer and director Anthony Hemingway.
“The role was written with Angela in mind,” Hemingway told Variety. “Angela has been a fan of the show since day one. She comes to our premieres and events, and offers a lot of support. And I’m a friend of the family, her and Courtney B. Vance. It was easy to make the connection and make the call and present to her what this character was and why we saw her as this character.

The 100 Review: “Gimme Shelter” or Die
At this point, it’s a little difficult for me to imagine what a nice, quiet, character focused episode of The 100 would be like. As of right now, I have No idea.
