Why Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs Was Perfect For Lifetime’s “Lust”?

The first of the Seven Deadly Sins book series, this movie is a grounded morality tale that explores the power of lust, but at what cost?

Keri Hilson, who plays Tiffanie Cooper, is about to have the wedding of her dreams to her soul mate, the dashing Damon King, who’s played by Tobias Truvillion, founder of King Enterprises. However, when Damon’s old friend Trey Taylor, played by Durrell ‘Tank’ Babbs arrives, fresh from prison to step in as Damon’s best man, Tiffanie’s whole world gets rocked.

Sexy and mysterious, Trey triggers a passion in Tiffanie that she never expected, and suddenly the life she’s always planned with Damon is uncertain. Although Trey still carries wounds from his history with Damon, and his intentions toward both Tiffanie and Damon are not to be trusted.

Lust: A Deadly Sins Story also stars Ms. Juicy, LeToya Luckett, and Clifton Powell and is produced by TD Jakes Enterprises and Big Dreams Entertainment. T.D. Jakes, Derrick Williams, Leslie Greif and Shaun Robinson serve as executive producers and Star Victoria directs from a script written by Sonay Hoffman.

Babbs sat down with Driune Santana to discuss his role as Trey Taylor and what his character felt when Tiffany prayed for him once she reclaimed her power.

“I will say that I think what Trey was feeling at that moment and what he started to feel even after in that scene when he got heavy into it”, said the singer. “What he had with Damon, they have history. They have a loving history that’s not just some guy, for the lack of blood that’s his brother.”
