Personal Quote:

[on Fruitvale Station (2013)] From an actor's perspective, it's the moment I've wanted to happen for a long time - to be able to be the lead of a film, to go to Sundance, to prove yourself with the material. I'm getting all this attention and all this success off of this tragic event. It's a bittersweet type of feeling. See more »
