Brian Tyree Henry, who stars as “Paper Boi” in the award-winning FX series, “Atlanta” has just joined the cast of White Boy Rick.
According to Deadline, the film, starring Matthew McConaughey, is the story of Richard Wershe Jr., who in mid-1980s Detroit at the age of only 14 became an undercover informant for local and federal law enforcement agencies and then established himself as a major drug dealer only to be taken down by the very law enforcement that empowered him.
Brian will play the role of narcotics detective Mel “Roach” Jackson, who is an undercover cop who may lead a double life.
Deadline reports Brian Tyree Henry is in just as many scenes as Matthew McConaughey!
Good for him!
