Neil Brown Jr. To Star In Navy SEAL Drama
Straight Outta Compton star Neil Brown Jr. is set as a lead in a Navy SEAL drama pilot on CBS.
According to Deadline, the untitled series follows the lives of the elite Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high stakes missions our country can ask.
Brown, who starred at DJ Yella in the N.W.A. biopic, will play Ray, the longest-tenured member of Jason’s (not yet cast) assault team, and his most trusted friend and colleague.
Congrats to Neil…he’s been on his grind doing great things on “Insecure” and “Dirk Gently.”
I look forward to seeing him as a SEAL.
