He has also been featured in films such as Margaret (dir. Kenneth Lonergan), Whip It (dir. Drew Barrymore), 21 Grams (dir. Alejandro González Iñárritu) and Hurricane Streets (dir. Morgan J. Freeman) which won the Audience, Best Director, and Best Cinematography Awards at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival. This is the first film ever to win three awards at the festival.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with the very talented actor to discuss his new film Mile 22 scheduled to hit the theatres everywhere on August 17. Also, he described what his dream role would be moving, as well as, what he would be doing if he was not discovered during the audition of the musical Oliver.
RESPECT: How was it like working with Mark Wahlberg on the set of Mile 22?
RESPECT: Is there anything that you took from his preparation that you use for approaching roles in the future?
RESPECT: Can you tell us a little about your character Douglas?
RESPECT: Do have any plans in the future to produce your own content?
RESPECT: How did features on Sesame Street, Thicker Than Blood, and Hi-Life help prepare you for roles later in your career?
RESPECT: Is there a dream role that you like to be a part of in the future?
RESPECT: How do you want to use your platform to inspire the next generation?
