It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Bill Bellamy on the small screen, but that’s all about to change. The actor/comedian has scored the lead role in Centric‘s new show, Mr. Box Office.
“I play Marcus Jackson, the biggest movie star in the world, thus Mr. Box Office. BOW!” Bellamy told HipHollywood.
The comedy follows the big shot actor as he goes into the inner-city and teaches underprivileged kids. “If it wasn’t for the school, I think my character would be obnoxious and probably be over-the-top” Bill explained, “so teaching at that school and starting to like these kids has changed his life and is making him a better person” he continued.
The show also stars Vivica Fox, Essence Atkins, Gary Busey, Rick Fox and many more.
