    Dwayne N. Chattman

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Dwayne Chattman.

    Actor/Writer/Singer and creator of The Lockhavens, Dwayne N. Chattman was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, and graduated from Colonel White High School. Dwayne decided to make a very bold move - he packed up what he could and took a bus all the way to Chicago. He attended acting classes at The Goodman Theatre. He also received a scholarship for dance at The Ruth Page School of Ballet and another ballet scholarship with Chicago City Ballet studying under the well-known instructor, Maria Tallchief. These talents landed Dwayne the lead role of Tyrone Jackson in the hit Broadway Musical, Fame. He received critical acclaim on the national tour, and it was a huge honor for him to record on the original cast album and to appear on Fame, the television series, as a dancer. Dwayne was also one of the African dancers in the unforgettable and classic scene in the motion picture Coming to America. This gave Dwayne even more drive and his acting career was just beginning at this point. He worked on many national commercials including Pepsi, Pringles, Key Bank, Sunkist, MCI, California Lotto and non-smoking public service announcements. Dwayne has appeared on television shows including "Martial Law where he played a street fighter and Noah's Arc, America's first gay black television series. Film credits include Virtuosity, Sgt. Bilko, Redemption and The Exorcism. Not only is Dwayne strong as a dramatic actor, but proved his comedic talent in a recurring role on the sketch comedy show Mind of Mencia, which aired on Comedy Central. The sky is the limit for this veteran and up and coming star.
