The Fast Life goes Hollywood with actor Laz Alonso who discusses he forthcoming movie Jumping The Broom premiering May 6th and being the star of A&E's Breakout Kings.  The D.C. born actor who also starred in Avatar talks about working with James Cameron and potentially appearing in the sequel as well as having the opportunity to work with such esteemed directors as James Cameron and Spike Lee.  Laz shares his thoughts on roles available to African-Americans and how he seeks roles of solid character that are more indicative of himself and allow him to demonstrate the his acting range to appeal to wider audiences.  We also discussed his forthcoming role in the film Straw Dogs where Laz discusses what he brings new to the project and how he is careful not to characterize the project as a "remake" old expectations wont detract from the new.  And straight from his @lazofficial twitter feed, Laz answer exactly how he would have re-shot the ending of Denzel Washington's Man on Fire.  Solid interview!
