What Makes You Think...?
Yesterday, during church, I sat next to a young actor who is new to Los Angeles and new to the church. In fact, yesterday was his first visit to the church. Anyway, I asked him the question I ask of many, young, black actors who move here with visions of Academy Awards in their heads: "What makes you think that you will be different from all the other black actors who are here and never find work?" He said, "Wow, that's a good question." Then, he proceeded to answer me off the fly. Well, I hope he continues to keep his head up, his craft up, and pursue his dream with steely focus. The fact that one, black person has made an incredible living as a Hollywood actor speaks to the possibility that ANOTHER can. But it takes TIMING, PERSISTENCE and SOMEBODY with "juice" to LIKE you!!! PERIOD! I wish him the best! Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the talents of, CHARLES MACEO.
