Coolige gets bitten by the acting bug when he is offered the role of Stanley Kowalski in Carver's production of "A Streetcar Named Desire". However, he is also offered a role in a television series which in which the main character is a white principal at a predominantly black high school (sound familiar). Unfortunately, Warren's sudden success goes to his head and he alienates his fellow teammates, who think he is fast becoming a sellout, or worse an Oreo cookie. However, Warren soon comes back to earth when he reads a script he finds demeaning. Now he must make amends to the guys before its too late. Written by Brian Washington <>
