By all accounts, Carl Anthony Payne II did a good job portraying L.A. Reid in the biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story…unless you ask Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds.
As Reid’s business partner and one of his closest friends, Babyface had high expectations for the person charged with channeling the famed music producer. But, when Payne asked Edmonds “how did I do?”, the “Whip Appeal” singer gave him an unenthusiastic “alright”. Would you call that a shot fired?
Even if Kenny was less than impressed, what really matters is L.A. Reid’s opinion. Check out the interview to see how he felt about Payne’s portrayal.
