BlackTree TV's Jamaal Finkley sits down with writer/director Scott Sanders, and comedic-actor Tommy Davidson to talk about their new film, Black Dynamite.
SCOTT SANDERS (WRITER/DIRECTOR)
Scott began his career as a television writer working on such hit TV shows as A DIFFERENT WORLD, ROC and THE WAYANS BROTHERS. His directorial debut came on the 1999 HBO feature film THICK AS THIEVES starring Alec Baldwin, Michael Jai White and Andre Braugher. Scott is also one of the most popular DJs in Los Angeles, spinning under the name Suckapunch.
Scott was born in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. He is a graduate University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where he studied Radio, TV and Motion Pictures.
TOMMY DAVIDSON/ CREAM CORN
An actor, stand-up comedian, musician, and singer, Tommy Davidsons exceptional range has made him a rising force in entertainment. Perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of the hit television show In Living Color, Davidson has parlayed that success into a flourishing motion picture career. Tommy starred in Spike Lees Bamboozled, where he received acclaim and praise for his turn as Womack/Sleep N Eats, a character which showcased his comedic and dramatic acting abilities. Davidson also starred in Morgan Creek Productions Juwanna Mann released in June 2002. Tommy was seen cracking jokes and doing what he does best, making people laugh, in THE FOX NFL SHOW, which aired weekly on Saturday nights; he also co-hosted this new and unique show with football greats Michael Irvin and Tony Siragusa. He was seen in the provocative urban comedy, Booty Call (Columbia Pictures). Davidson has also starred opposite Jada Pinkett Smith in the romantic comedy, Woo (New Line). He has also made an impressive film debut opposite Halle Berry in Strictly Business. On the small screen, Davidsons voice was heard in the Disney Channel animated series, The Proud Family.
Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in the late 1980s throughout the Washington Metropolitan region, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, performing in various comedy clubs. Performing stand-up in local talent showcases was where he was spotted by concert promoters, who booked him as the opening act for such major music stars such as Patti LaBelle, Kenny G, and Luther Vandross. The next step was Hollywood; he performed at many small clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where among others, he met Robert Townsend and Keenan Ivory Wayans, who would later prove instrumental in Davidsons career. Davidsons first national television appearance was a starring role in Townsends Partners in Crime. Wayans, who offered him the opportunity to audition for a primetime variety show called In Living Color, which became a cult favorite and a huge ratings success, then approached Davidson. Davidsons hilarious impressions of Sammy Davis, Jr., Michael Jackson and others have become infamous. In Living Color led to three Showtime specials: On Strength of New York, Illin in Philly, and Takin it to DC, and a handsome film career such as a reunion with fellow In Living Color alumni, Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura II: When Nature Calls.
