‘Black-ish’ Stars Anthony Anderson & Tracee Ellis Ross Cover Ebony’s 2017 Fall Fashion Issue

As we head into the fourth season of the ABC sitcom Black-ish this coming October, Primetime Emmy-nominated stars Anthony Anderson & Tracee Ellis Ross serve as the latest actors to grace the cover of Ebony‘s upcoming 2017 Fall Fashion Issue.

Set to hit stands next month, Ebony gave us a sneak peek of their cover story, with an excerpt on how Anthony Anderson & Tracee Ellis Ross described working with one another.

ELLIS ROSS: My whole philosophy is if you get too big for your britches and [say,] “I’m not auditioning for that,” well, there’s someone who’s gonna come right off a bus and be happy to. So I went into the audition with Anthony [for ‘black-ish], Larry Wilmore was in there, Kenya was in there. It was Valentine’s Day. Anthony snatched my paper away from me, which he loves to do. He thinks it’s funny, and it’s just rude.

ANDERSON: But you know that character.

ELLIS ROSS: I know, Anthony, but sometimes it’s a safety blanket for people.

ANDERSON: You don’t need a safety net. As long as I have you, you don’t; as long as you have me, you don’t.
