Alphonso McAuley (‘Breaking In’) Signs Talent Deal w/ Universal (Eyeing Lead In Comedy Pilot)

Alphonso McAuley ('Breaking In') Signs Talent Deal w/ Universal (Eyeing Lead In Comedy Pilot)

I obviously don’t watch enough TV to know that Alphonso McAuley must be quite the talent for Universal Television to want to sign a talent holding deal with the young actor, with plans to cast him in a comedy pilot for the studio.

McAuley currently co-stars in Fox’s comedy series Breaking In – his first major series role, in which he plays a genius gadget wiz named CassiusCashSparks.

In the past, he played Bucky in the Fat Albert movie, Orsten Artis in the 2006 film Glory Road, and Walt in the film Pride. He went on to co-star with Tatyana Ali in the sitcom Love That Girl!

And with this new talent deal with Universal, with a potential comedy series all his own, he’s certainly one to keep a closer eye on.

Alright, let me go watch episodes of Breaking In so I can get caught up, before he really blows up!

He's funny. The writing was off on "Love That Girl", because the entire cast is actually talented, including Ms. Ali, the actress who plays Imyounique, etc. The actress who plays Imyounique is in a commercial, and I almost didn't recognize her with her natural hair color and the lack of stereotype. TVOne really wasted her talent in that role.
