I'm a writer, a segment producer and I'm a veteran of entertaining man-on-the street segments. I've done speaking roles in national TV commercials and comic acting as a recurring satirical news character for THE ONION. Film is my passion. I was the first black person to have his own prime time celebrity talk show on VH1. I'm one of the few black people who's been a weekly entertainment editor/film critic on a network news TV show. No brag. Just fact.
Actor Michael Shannon played the protective father of a sweet child being hunted because of his supernatural gift. I talked to Shannon about this year's sci-fi thriller, MIDNIGHT SPECIAL, and his career.
And if you want proof that I had my own talk show on VH1, here you are.

IF there was big surprise and I booked a network TV gig that paid very well, I want to make a sizeable donation to New York City's chapter of the Actors Fund so I can help others the way I've been helped: ActorsFund.org.
