Call in to speak with the host
NFL-wide-receiver-turned-filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry breaks it down about his new web series, Almost 30—suggesting that Hollywood do a better job of keepin’ it real in the comedy department. “You watch shows like Entourage and you always see an epic victory. There’s always these guys who always get the hot girl, their car is always nice. Like in the rap industry there’s always the same depiction of young black males,” he tells host Iyanna Jones. “But I was like, man, it would be so much funnier if you showed the struggle—you pull up to that club in a beat-up car and you gotta get out on the passanger-side door and stories like that we have from being young and trying to make it in L.A.”
It's good to talk.
