Not many people can call Jamie Foxx a coworker, but Toshia Galligan can.

The Coventry, Rhode Island native is set to make her acting debut alongside Foxx and several Hollywood stars with the release of Not Another Church Movie, due in theatres on May 10th.

Galligan and her castmate Luc Ashley stopped by the Fun 107 studio to give the details on the upcoming film.

Who Is Toshia Galligan?

Galligan got her start in pageantry but felt she was destined for other avenues, and her attention turned to modeling,

“I did Rhode Island Fashion Week…that led to commercials for Boston Cosmetic and Laser Center, which then led to meeting directors,” shared Galligan.

She eventually crossed paths with James Cummings, the producer of Not Another Church Movie.

“He said to me, ‘I have a role for you,’ and I haven’t looked back since,” said Galligan.

Becoming an actor felt unreal to Galligan, but thanks to Jamie Foxx, she felt right at home on her first movie set.

“I didn’t believe it was really happening until I met Jamie Foxx’s eyes, and we smiled at each other, and I said, ‘This is really happening,’” she laughed. “He’s really cool to work with. On set, he kept everyone in great spirits. I was nervous but he made me feel really comfortable because he just made me laugh the whole time.”

Keep an eye out for Galligan as “Earth Angel”, one of God’s right-hand women.

What Is Not Another Church Movie About?

The official synopsis:

Hoprah Windfall (Luc Ashley), fretting as her ratings plummet because her talk show and audience need some new blood, calls on God (Jamie Foxx) and demands His help. God and his angels decide there’s no better choice to replace her with than the hardest-working man in the world, Taylor Pherry (Kevin Daniels). But when the Devil (Mickey Rourke) overhears this, he comes up with a fiendish plan of his own to disrupt the whole ordeal.

While Taylor prepares for one of his many jobs that mostly entail helping his dysfunctional but lovable family through their trials and tribulations, God appears and orders him to help Hoprah accomplish her mission, by writing a movie.

It’s a fun, parody comedy that takes playful jabs at Tyler Perry movies, with familiar actors joining the cast such as Vivica A. Fox, Kyla Pratt, Lamorne Morris, and Tisha Campbell.

Leave The Kids at Home for This One

Galligan was joined in studio by Luc Ashley, actor and comedian, who portrays a parody character of Oprah by the name of "Hoprah Windfall" in the movie.

“Everyone is not getting a car, but they’re getting something,” joked Ashley.

Ashley raved about leading man Kevin Daniels and promised non-stop laughter throughout the film.

“This is not a family movie, leave the kids at home,” she said. “It’s a good laugh. We need some comedy right now.”

Not Another Church Movie hits theaters on May 10th.
