MOVIE STILLS: 'A RAISIN IN THE SUN' with SEAN 'DIDDY' COMBS, SANAA LATHAN & PHYLICIA RASHAD; TV VERSION TO AIR ON ABC IN FEBRUARY '08.

Thanks to WoooHah.com and Soul Glo, here are some exclusive movie stills of Sean 'Diddy' Combs as Walter Lee Younger in the television adaptation of A Raisin in the Sun. The film will air on ABC on February 25, 2008 from 8pm-11pm, so check your local listings for the channel. Combs, who reprises the role of Walter Lee, Jr. which brought him acclaim in the Broadway version in 2004, stars in the television movie adaptation from Sony Pictures Television, along with the cast of the award-winning Broadway revival who recreate their roles for the new film, including Emmy and Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad, four-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, Tony Award nominee Sanaa Lathan, plus "ER" star John Stamos (Stamos also played the role of Uncle Jessie on Full House).

Based on the play that inspired a generation, A Raisin in the Sun tells the story of a family living and struggling on Chicago's South Side in the 1950s. A fiercely moving portrait of people whose hopes and dreams are constantly deferred, A Raisin in the Sun was the first play written by an African American woman to be produced on Broadway. It premiered in 1959 with a cast that included Sidney Poitier, Claudia McNeil, Diana Sands, Ruby Dee and Louis Gossett, Jr. A Columbia Pictures feature with the same cast followed in 1961.
