From the fall of 2016, when directors Marvin and Jordan Spencer (no, that’s not a replacement Matthew, but wow, his hair DID used to look kinda like that) discussed the experience of shooting the promos. A Table Setting in, and of, itself.
From the fall of 2016. After debating over whether Jesse Corti (a mutual friend from Hollywood Presbyterian Church) did, or did not, play the Teacup in Beauty and the Beast, Isaac works on delivering his lines. There is a tension, and therein lies a perfect table setting: does Isaac say his lines, written by Andre Henry, as forcefully as he feels them? Or does he risk coming across as the “angry black male?”
A few weeks ago, we heard Ivy weigh in on what this taught her, scroll back to that post on 3/2/17
Isaac’s reflections were on 3/9/17.
