And I'm like, "I'm going home, I'm gonna catch up on some sleep and spend some time with my son." My little boy hadn't even made 1 yet when we were shooting the first season, and my wife had her hands full because she went back to work around that time. I think the next gig I get that shoots outside of Atlanta is probably going to be really difficult for me, to be away from home. "With some judicious alterations, it might make a decent porn picture, as the gals do seem kinda hot, at least on the page."That was a script note offered by an anonymous reader working for an annual screenwriting contest run by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the same organization...
I really cherish shows that shoot almost in my backyard. "With some judicious alterations, it might make a decent porn picture, as the gals do seem kinda hot, at least on the page."That was a script note offered by an anonymous reader working for an annual screenwriting contest run by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the same organization... Q: On the other hand, people who represent big stars can seem so mercenary.
Now in its second season, the Starz comedy about a high-profile NBA player and his family gladly embraces the public-relations nuances and embarrassments of a star player under the spotlight.
It is the show's smaller moments, though, that actually make larger points about money and family and the power dynamic therein.
I was able to sit back and observe what it's like to be Le Bron James.
My character on the show is based on Maverick Carter's relationship with Le Bron and I was telling him it was some of the best homework that I could do as an actor.
Jack Stiles, American spy stationed on a South Pacific island in the early 19th century, teams up with no nonsense British agent Emilia Rothschild to stop Napoleon's colonizing efforts.
Jack's alter ego is the Zorro-esque Daring Dragoon.
Q: Did you talk to Le Bron James about his life to help you prep for the show?
The breadwinner is Cam Calloway (played by Jessie Usher as a star athlete both astute and petulant), who lives with his outspoken mother (Tichina Arnold), his formidably ridiculous sister (Erica Ash, who gives her character a vulnerable undercurrent) and his knucklehead uncle (Mike Epps).
They all have their heads in the clouds, with the exception of Cam's cousin — who is also his manager — played by Ron Reaco Lee with a sense of business savvy that's not always cut out for the big leagues.
Because you get to see the energy that surrounds an individual like Le Bron. If you're ever fortunate enough to get that close to somebody of his level — he's just moving from point A to point B, but that energy gets up and it moves with him.
Also I was able to check out his entourage, which included this guy named Randy, who is a really nice guy.
So as an actor, I was able to see that Reggie is a combination of Maverick Carter and Randy.
