I don’t recall being introduced to Billy Brown until HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Shame on me….. but it’s true! Must have been all those sexually charged scenes on How to Get Away With Murder that got my attention.
Some of you may be familiar with Brown from projects such as; Lakeview Terrace, The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), Star Trek (2009) and Cloverfield (2008). Or, you may have just met him, like I did…. as the “cuddle buddy” of Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Brown plays the sexy Detective Nate Lahey on the ABC drama.
Oh, no, no, no, I didn’t stop in to talk about the above, I popped in to let you know, if you haven’t heard, Brown is currently starring opposite Taraji P. Henson in the hitman thriller, PROUD MARY. Brown is playing Tom Spencer, son to Danny Glover’s character, owner to the Spencer family business. The family business seems to be one of crooked and unethical practices. And from the sound of things, PROUD MARY is a product from the Spencer tree. Not only that, Brown and Henson’s characters had a significant relationship. This should add a hint of interest to the story.
Brown mentioned during a press day discussion, that the original script he was given was much different than the one that was shot. Which is not unusual for changes to be made in a direction in which will make the audience lean more towards the lead character.
Billy Brown in PROUD MARY… we know he can give us sex on screen, let’s see if he can give us exciting beyond the sheets in this flick.
PROUD MARY comes out shooting January 12, 2018.
