Reggie Interviews: Kelvin Harrison Jr – MONSTER

I got a chance to speak with Kelvin Harrison Jr. about his movie Monster. In this film, Harrison’s character is a smart and multi-talented teenager who get caught-up in a robbery and the movie explores his guilt or innocence.

Reggie Interviews: The Paper Tigers

I got a chance to speak with the cast of the movie The Paper Tigers: Alain Uy (Helstrom, True Detective), Ron Yuan (Mulan, Marco Polo) and Mykel Shannon Jenkins (The Bold and the Beautiful). The conversation begins with Ron trying to eat a little something and we get a real laugh about his inability to share his food or his unwillingness to do so.

The studio describe the film as follows: Three martial artists—notorious in their prime as “the three tigers”—have grown into middle-aged men one kick from a pulled muscle. But after their teacher’s murder, they must juggle dead-end jobs, dad duties, and old grudges to avenge him.

The Paper Tigers is in theaters and on digital May 7.
