Jurnee Smollett-Bell would like to clarify one thing: She'd be nervous to set you up on a date with one of her friends. Thankfully, real life doesn't intrude on art: Smollett-Bell plays Judith, a matchmaker/wannabe marriage counselor lured into some infidelity of her own in "Tyler Perry's Temptation."The 26-year-old actress isn't a stranger to the small screen, either: She was a series regular on "Friday Night Lights," was just cast in "True Blood," and even took a turn as Denise Frazer on "Full House" from 1992 to 1994.
You play the titular marriage counselor in this movie.
However, before Jack, she was in 11 episodes of Full House over the course of three seasons, playing a friend to little Michelle Tanner.
She’s had several other roles on both television and film (Roll Bounce, Parenthood, Gridiron Gang, Grey’s Anatomy), though the other role she’s probably best known for is in The Great Debaters, which was directed by Denzel Washington.
In 1999, Smollett-Bell starred in the racially charged Disney channel film Selma, Lord, Selma.

If you're friends with both of them, then it's awkward if it doesn't work.

I want to throw a party and have all my couple friends bring a single friend to — not put any pressure on — but kind of do a speed dating thing with all the single people. “I think one of the challenging things about any lasting relationship is that you have to be so vulnerable.I think as human beings we try to hide our flaws and try to present this perfect person, this person we wish we were to our spouse when that causes so many troubles.”After years up building upon that foundation, the pair are now parents.
