Little Rock native, SeJames Humphrey, recently wrote, directed and produced Nice Guys Finish Last, a star-studded romantic comedy. Nice Guys Finish Last is now available on Amazon Prime video and Google Play, becoming available on the A-vod platform Tubi in late July.
Humphrey, in his romantic comedy, also plays the leading role alongside actors Alivea Disney, Shuntel Renay, Rod Minger, Veronica Dillard, Danielle Maner, Kymm Jean-Noel, Shamber Uzuh, Larry Jenkins and more.
Nice Guys Finish Last, was filmed entirely in Little Rock, and explores the romantic life of James Wilson – a successful Finance Officer– as he navigates the modern dating world from a Black male’s perspective. Following the traditional Black romantic comedy structure, Nice Guys Finish Last includes surprising twists and cultural references from popular topics on “Black Twitter.”
“James Wilson is a successful Black man that seems to have it all together. He has all the material things a man could dream of and women find him simply irresistible. Yet,he prides himself on being a nice guy that goes against all odds of being labeled the stereotypical playboy. As he prepares to propose to whom he believes is the love of his life, he stumbles upon her secret double life. Devastated by her betrayal, he decides to take his best friends’ advice and shed his nice guy image. Everything seems to be all fun and games as he goes on a series of dates until he meets another girl that he thinks potentially could be the “one”.As their relationship blossoms, he is blindsided again by another shocking revelation. Maybe nice guys really do finish last or maybe they just need to open their eyes to what is directly in front of them.”
Produced by Humphrey’s production company, Into The Sunset Productions, which develops and produces feature films and documentaries that tell the untold stories of African American communities, tying in different perspectives and inspirational lessons. Inspired by his little league football coach Ed Johnson, Humphrey wrote and produced his first documentary Into The Sunset in 2018.
