Nicole Byer, Justice Smith & An-Li Bogan Take Turns in the Hot Seat | Where Is The Lie? | ELLE

The cast of “The American Society of Magical Negroes” come together in the new ELLE series, “Where Is The Lie?” Actors Nicole Byer, Justice Smith & An-Li Bogan each take turns in the hot seat and share outrageous confessions while their co-stars interrogate them, trying to determine which statement is a lie. From alleged spells on Drew Barrymore to loving Vin Diesel in a way that’s “sick,” watch as they test their deductive reasoning and determine if their co-star is telling the truth or just a really good liar. The new film "The American Society of Magical Negroes" is playing in theaters now. #WhereIsTheLie #ELLE #TheAmericanSocietyOfMagicalNegroes #NicoleByer #JusticeSmith #AnLiBogan
