I love writing prompts they get the creative juices flowing and helps you share with different ideas you may not think about on your own. This is my first time linking up with Cheap Is The New Classy for their #moreclassywriting prompts. Today the topic is Who is your favorite male actor?
This is a very easy one for me. I know a lot of people will have names like George Clooney, Bruce Willis, Denzel and actors like that. For me it’s always been Laurence Fishburne. I just love his acting. The first time I remember seeing him was an old movie when he was younger and I’ve liked his acting style since. He was great in the Matrix and has also done some directing. He has work credits in film, stage and television. The only role I didn’t like was his portrayal of Ike Turner in What’s Love Got to Do With It. I just couldn’t get with his being such an abusive man. I later read that he turned down the role several times until they made changes to made him more comfortable with the role. He was the first black actor to play Othello on the stage and still continues to make great strides in acting.
He is currently married and has three children. You may have heard about his daughter Montana Fishburne staring in an adult film, which caused him to allegedly cut ties with her. He also has a new television show coming out this April called Hannibal on the NBC network.
