2012 will be a big year for him. I feel like I'm constantly seeing his name attached to a new project. I hope this is a meaty role because I really do enjoy seeing him in quality projects.

A. MACKIE in anything is a joy to behold. I think he is the best of the crop of young, versatile men of color to hit the screen in a few years. And he seems to be just a cool guy as well. We need some of the others to adopt his work ethic, style, and diligence. We don't see him in the gossip pages or hear any negative news about him which is so very refreshing. Stay true to the course MR. MACKIE!!!
