Reasonable Doubt” star Michael Ealy is trending in the streets of Twitter and it isn’t because he’s fine as frog hair…it’s because of how convincing he is when playing “crazy” roles.

In the hit Hulu series, executive produced by Kerry Washington, Pilar Savone, and Larry Wilmore, Michael plays the role of “Damon.”

Giving OG prison bae vibes, Damon isn’t someone you should look at too long unless you are trying to get into trouble.

Complex, smart, and troubled, Damon is a former client of Jax’s (Emayatzy Corinealdi) who’s been in prison for sixteen years for a murder he didn’t commit.

Upon his release, he comes back into Jax’s life and things get sexy…and crazy!

The season finale of “Reasonable Doubt” is now streaming on Hulu and folks have taken to the streets of Twitter to discuss how well Michael Ealy taps into his crazy in these types of roles.

Peep the tweets below.


If it brings you any peace of mind, Michael is seemingly stable and happy in his real-life marriage to Khatira Rafiqzada.

The couple recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary and Khatira took to social media to write:

15 years together but today we celebrate 10 years of marriage. We have truly grown up together. Seen the world together. Built a home together. Built a family together!

You have loved me at my worst and my best, and everything in between…and I don’t take any of that for granted.

Thank you for your patience and always showing me how important it is to work through conflict, and life’s many challenges.

You have taught me to never give up, always show grace, take accountability and most important, you are willing to grow and evolve with me— with us. I am so damn proud of myself for knowing back then that you are what I deserve.

God knows I haven’t always been good to myself but you are the best thing I’ve ever worked my ass off to keep! I can truly say I love you deeper today than ever before. I love you and all that we have built.

I vow to never sing again!!!!
