After a little Q & A session last week, I figured today would be the perfect day to talk about Mr. Jessie T. Usher. Can you say Man Crush Monday? This young actor is really making a name for himself. As the star of the hit series Survivor’s Remorse, portraying Cam Calloway, Jessie has gained quite a fan base.
The series starts out telling the story of the Cam & the rest of the Calloway family after he signs a multimillion-dollar contract with an Atlanta basketball team. Now in 2016, the show is on its third season.
If you haven’t seen the show, you are MISSING OUT!
In case you missed that last part…I’ll say it again.
Season 3 of Survivor’s Remorse airs July 24, 2016.
Fun Fact: Jessie might kill it on-screen as basketball star Cam Calloway, but when I asked what some of his favorites were, he stated…
“As far as sports go, my favorite to watch is football.”
Steven Hiller was portrayed by Will Smith in the 1996 Oscar-winning film Independence Day. You know the story right? Hostile aliens try to take over, and the military tries to stop them? Well, Jessie has been busy shooting in the deserts of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He will be starring as Dylan Hiller, son of Steven Hiller, in Independence Day: Resurgence!
The official release date for Independence Day: Resurgence is June 24, 2016. Have you watched the trailer? If not, check it out right here!
Last year, Jessie stated that as far as upcoming projects, he would use his “fourth quarter move”. He was looking for something toward the end of the year, but it had to “fit”.
Towards the end of this year, you will be seeing him in another movie entitled Almost Christmas. This Universal Pictures film is definitely promising.
After the passing of their mother, a less than sane family gathers for Christmas. All that is asked of them is to get a long….for 5 long days. They can do it…right? Not without some difficulty….ok…I lied. A lot of difficulty!
Kimberly Elise, Omar Epps, Danny Glover, Romany Malco, Mo’Nique, Nicole Ari Parker, J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, DC Young Fly and of course…Jessie T. Usher!
With an all-star lineup like this, Almost Christmas is definitely on my wish list.
The release date for this film has been set for November 11, 2016.
Fun Facts: When I asked Jessie who inspired him the most, he said his parents. Jessie has been accomplishing great things since he was a kid: Being little Simba in the Lion King on Broadway in New York & performing in Shakespeare in D.C.
Everyone has a hobby, and every time I turn around…Jessie has a camera in his hand! I wanted to know what got him into photography….So of course I asked. His answer…
Jessie: “My desire to start directing. I figured it’d be a good idea to start looking at things thru a lens.”
“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
– Elliot Erwitt
Fun Facts: Not only does he enjoy photography, but Jessie studied Culinary Arts when he moved out to California from Maryland, and he loves Indian food.
Jessie, congratulations on all your accomplishments! You are doing so many great things, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. Also, thank you for taking the time to participate in my Q & A. You’re a sweetheart.
