Gentlemen’s Corner: Gary Gray Talks Playing a Gay Man and Working Alongside Mo’Nique in ‘Blackbird’
Whether you recognize his face from beloved sitcom (The Cosby Show, Even Stevens) or his voice from your favorite childhood cartoons (The Fairly Oddparents, Rocket Power), there is no doubt that Gary LeRoi Gray has made his mark in show biz. The twenty seven year old former child star has been keeping busy lately; flexing off more of his serious acting chops in the upcoming film Blackbird, alongside Mo’Nique, Isaiah Washington, and newcomer Julian Walker.
The film, which explores the subject of homosexuality within the African American community and the church, has received rave reviews during its premiere screening at film festivals last month. We caught up with Gary to discuss his brave new role.
