In the 2010s, LeToya Luckett and Rockmond Dunbar co-starred with him in the television series For Richer or For Poorer, and he also played an FBI agent who later joined the FCC as a field agent on The Rickey Smiley Show. Most recently, he can also be seen as Myles Wilson in Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan which airs on Nickelodeon.
