I met Laz Alonso about 10 years ago while he was hosting a morning show on BET. Fast forward to present day, Laz has built an impressive resume in both TV and film. If you look up 'Laz Alonso' on IMDB (independent movie database), you will read through the 40 plus projects Laz has been featured in.
Among the long list of characters he has played, Laz can currently be seen starring as US Marshall Charlie Duchamp, on the hit A&E TV drama Breakout Kings. Laz will also be featured as the lead role in the new movie Jumping the Broom in theaters May 6, 2011. He has shared the screen with some of the most talented producers, directors and fellow actors and actresses in the business. Yet, Laz remains quite humble as his star continues to get brighter.
I spoke with Laz on the phone and we discussed his background in film, how his college education and history as a wall street exec helped prep him for Hollywood, dating in the business and both his current and future projects.
