Lance Gross is a man of many talents.

The actor, who was recently named the new face of Magic Shave, discussed his role in the new NBC pilot to be tentatively called List Of Demands, where he suits up as a secret service agent. “I’m working my first day on the President’s son’s detail and on my first day, the President’s son gets kidnapped, so it’s an action-packed first day,” he told VIBE at the Heineken Filmmaker Party Apr. 20.

The “Temptations” star even pitched himself for a surprising role. “I would actually like to play Bobby Brown,” Gross said of the upcoming Whitney Houston biopic, who reportedly has Idris Elba in talks for the character. “To me, he was just the King of R&B at one point.”
