amari and i grew up in the same church in atlanta, and even though i’m not in touch with him and can’t tell him myself, i’m so ridiculously proud of him. he acted/performed even back then and i knew he had something special. he’s been in night catches us and django unchained; for both i had no idea he was in the cast and went through intense shock/delight when he showed up on screen (in the early moments for both movies, coincidentally). i haven’t seen newlyweeds yet, but can’t wait. of course because it’s him, but also because of all the buzz it’s getting from sundance. he’s one to look out for.
