Only a handful of Brothers can say they kissed Academy Award winning actress Halle Berry. Actor and producer Jensen Atwood did so in the movie Their Eyes Were Watching God.

In an instant while serving overseas in the United States Army, he became clear about his purpose in life. He shares that moment and how he made it in the Hollywood acting scene. Spoiler alert--this South Central L.A. native worked for it. 

Favorite movies:  Friday and the 2005 Leonardo diCaprio version of Romeo and Juliet. Favorite song is from Romeo and Juliet, Kissing You.

Favorite words: "Don't set yourself on fire to keep other people warm." "It's okay to fight for someone you love. It's not okay to fight for someone to love you." And from his father, "Work smarter, not harder."
