I’ve been keeping this one under my hat for a couple weeks. Dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s, so to speak. But with all that taken care of, I’m now thrilled to announce that the role of ‘Sidney Tatum’ will be played by Emmy award winner James McDaniel.
Look, I knew we needed someone good to play ‘Sidney’. Someone with a big-time college coach’s gravitas, the intelligence to project the character’s complicated personal life, and the courage, frankly, to appear in a film as controversial as this one. But to work with Mr. McDaniel, whose extensive acting credits include prominent roles on “Law & Order”, “NYPD Blue”, “N3mbers”, “The Good Wife”, “Malcom X”, and over 60 other titles – it’s just so cool, man.
Check back for updates. If the rest of the cast is half as good as James, this production will be in excellent hands.
