A Celebration Of Hit The Floor Star Kimberly Elise’s Illustrious Career

Kimberly Elise is somewhat of an acting legend, having worked on films like Beloved, with Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover, Set It Off, with Queen Latifah and Vivica Fox, and Diary Of A Mad Black Woman with Tyler Perry. She built up an impressive career over the years, and we were thrilled to hear the news last year that she would be starring on a new VH1 show called Hit The Floor. She recently told us about her decision to join the cast, saying “I love it, I love surprising people and not being predictable and following my heart and what inspires me artistically.” We’re so glad she followed her heart directly to this show.

Take a look at Elise in some of her most memorable roles now, and get ready for what is sure to be a shocking finale of Hit The Floor (please don’t let Sloane be the killer!)
