Sinqua Walls To Portray Don Cornelius In BET’s ‘American Soul’ Series
Sinqua Walls will star as a young Don Cornelius in BET’s forthcoming drama series, “American Soul.” Get the scoop.
“Power” alum Sinqua Walls is set to star in BET’s forthcoming drama series, “American Soul.”
The 33-year-old actor will star as a young Don Cornelius in the 10-episode series that is inspired by the “personal trials and professional successes of the young, ambitious and troubled impresario Cornelius.”
The drama series is described as an unflinching look at the entrepreneur, his “Soul Train” dancers, crew and musicians in an unforgiving Hollywood in the 1970’s – how they work, play, rise and fall against the backdrop of “Soul Train” — “the hippest trip in America” and one of the most predominant television shows for African American culture.
This is a great look for Sinqua and I’m sure he’ll do a great job!
