“I just finished a film called Atzec Warrior with Luis Guzman about the Lucha Libre movement. That was directed by Scott Sanders who did the funny film Black Dynamite. I will also be in Scary Movie 5. That’s being directed by my man Malcolm Lee, who I love from The Best Man. I plan on coming back for the second season of The Newsroom and I have a couple of things in the works. I do plan on being in Expendables 3, which is really popping up really quick. A lot of people are talking about it, but it depends on how ‘2’ does.”
