Gentleman’s Corner: Larenz Tate Talks ‘House of Lies,’ Working With Nia Long and Music Video Directing


Larenz Tate

Larenz Tate is as soulful on screen as he is in conversation. Vixen caught up with the veteran actor who is currently appearing on Showtime’s House of Lies.

Playing Malcolm, the younger brother of Marty Kihn’s (Don Cheadle), Tate’s reoccurring role on the drama series has catapulted him back into the spotlight and brought a fresh new energy to the TV hit. But while he’s soaking up premium cable looks, he’s also dabbling behind the scenes as a director.

He’s got quite a few other projects developing this year that he can’t share yet. But in the meantime, he was able to dish on House of Lies, Nia Long and working with Melanie Fiona. — Sharifa Daniels
