Sterling K Brown

What a year for Sterling K. Brown! He had a key role as Christopher Darden in The People VS O.J.

Of course, the cast is a who’s who of big-name black actors working today with a cast list that includes: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker, Florence Kasumba, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett and Letitia Wright.
