Nelsan Ellis, ladies and gentleman:
Everyone who knows me knows that I adore this actor. So sorry, he gets two photos.
So clearly, he’s gorgeous. But he’s also disgustingly gifted. He’s probably the most promising Black actor I’ve seen emerge since Don Cheadle in the 90s.
He’s that good.
Watch him in character as Lafayette (of HBO’s True Blood) below. His performance is so specific and detailed, and it feels so lived in.
