What intrigued you about “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World”?
There are so many incredible themes in the show. It’s a lot about reconnecting with your family and forgiveness and spirituality. It felt very different, and something that I hadn’t really done before.
How did you get involved in acting?
I had to have an extracurricular activity when I was a kid. I played tennis pretty seriously, and when I burned out on that around 10, my parents were like, “You gotta choose something different.” There was a little theater company in our area

Fist Fight has arrived in theaters today with Charlie Day and Ice Cube going toe-to-toe in the ultimate teacher fight.
The film is about two high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way after school. On the last day of the year, a mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Stricklan (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.
It also stars Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Dennis Haysbert, Kumail Nanjiani and JoAnna Garcia Swisher.
