Michael Kenneth Williams has a wide-ranging career that encompasses everything from his Jazz Age gangster Chalky White in BOARDWALK EMPIRE to a heroic resistance fighter in THE PURGE: ANARCHY to the husband of Queen Latifah’s Bessie Smith in BESSIE, a performance that earned Williams an Emmy nomination. However, right now Williams is in the unusual position of being on television almost simultaneously as two very different gay black Viet Nam veterans. In ABC’s LGBTQ civil rights miniseries WHEN WE RISE, running February 7 through March 3, the actor from Brooklyn plays real-life gay rights activist Ken Jones. In Season 2 […]Read On »

THE FOLLOWING, now in its second season on Fox, Mondays at 9 PM, concerns the hunt by Kevin Bacon’s character, former FBI profiler Ryan Hardy, for serial killer Joe Carroll, played by James Purefoy.

Emma, as we’ve seen, is a mistress of disguise and misdirection, able to seem entirely innocent and normal while being entirely lethal. When Curry auditioned for Emma, THE FOLLOWING’s creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson says […]Read On »

Now, in Season 2 of THE FOLLOWING on Fox, Mondays at 9 PM, Underwood portrays twin serial killers Luke and Mark, whose mother Lily (Connie Nielsen) is even more warped than they are. At an event held by Fox for the Television Critics Association, Underwood talks about playing dangerous men. AX: Did you audition for THE […]Read On »
