I am known in my inner circle as "Blaq Jack" or "Rogue." I play by my own rules and live my life the way I choose (which I think is important, provided you're not a convicted felon I suppose). I embarked on this Hollywood thing what feels like an eternity ago and all I could think before I got here was "if the Wayans Brothers can work, so can I." Nothing has changed since that time. I still feel the Wayans should stop doing movies. I have been classified as a hater, but nothing could be further from the truth. It's not my fault that Halle Berry shouldn't have an Oscar or that she's a crappy actress (did you see X-Men 3? In the immortal words of Bill Walton, she was HORRRRIBLE!). I will always remember her being the down *** chick from "Strictly Business" with Joseph C. Phillips and Tommy Davidson. She had some real flava and soul back then. Now she's just a confused "mix-breed girl" to quote Uncle Ruckus from Boondocks. I'm the whitest Black Jew you'll ever meet. I love Jews because they have always shown me love (growing up in Queens, NY was good to me). Not to mention, people always mistake me for Jewish when they see my facial features, although I take that as a compliment (my favorite Jew is Arthur Miller). However, I also have a lil Black Panther in me (thanks Dad) which allows me to infiltrate the culture and pick up some of the interesting characteristics that my fellow brothers and sisters of a darker hue possess. If you haven't figured out by now, I am an actor, writer (television and screen) and producer. My favorite actor of all time is Eddie Murphy, my favorite actor currently is Kevin Spacey. I love Orson Welles and Larry David as innovators. Ray Bradbury said in January '01 that I reminded him of a young Orson. What a compliment that was. He even gave me a kiss on a cheek and a personal autograph of his book. What a man. I think movies are pretty horrible right now. Everything is a remake and then it's poorly done. I think writing has sunk to the point where even the lowest common denominator is saying "hey, what is this crap?" I am a revolutionary (puts right fist in the air), I look at the things from the abstract and bring reality to it. God gave me a gift and I have a way with the oratory and the written vernacular. I have a gift and I am eager to share it. I don?t know why I am on this site, because quite frankly I hate the party scene and I hate name dropping (unless I am making fun of people who make more money then me and are better people because of it *just kidding*). However, there is something intriguing about millionaires and as someone who is not far away from being a millionaire, I would love to meet some like-minded people (who are somewhat real). Is that an oxymoron? By the way, I realize I made myself a hypocrite. I name-dropped Ray Bradbury a few paragraphs back, although I am under the assumption that people who read this profile are familiar with this "GREAT AMERICAN WRITER." I always get compared to Jaleel White (Steve Urkel) and Nick Cannon (no-talent bum), because I have this baby face and that sexy caramel-mocha combination thing going on. I admit my mother has good genes. However, I cannot stand the comparisons. I am more talented than those guys will ever be (although I happened to love the Urkman growing up). Problem is nobody likes a revolutionary, because the status quo is easier to maintain. If you let the Typical Black Celebrity in, he goes and tears things up and makes people have to re-evaluate what they do, because of how good he is. They say the most dangerous man in America is an educated black man (and I agree to degree, with the exception of Mike Tyson, who's dumb as a rock, but is just plain scary). So to that I will say that the most dangerous man in America is the man who understands his limitations and suppresses them, while sees his strengths and magnifies them. Since I feel I don't have any weaknesses, I guess that means that I am the most dangerous man in America. Just wait till I get a chance to sway the world with my use of the English language. I hate to say it, but it's a wrap, ladies and gentlemen. So I am going to drink my Ovaltine, put on my flip flops, read my horoscope and finish editing a screenplay. By the way, my name is Charles. The pleasure has been all mine. Really it has.* *Reading this in one sitting proves that you do not have Attention Deficit Disorder. Consider yourself one of the few.

I haven't used this site in a long time but a blog reality show? Heck I detest reality shows with a blinding hot passion. This would get a no-go from me. A film on the other hand parodying something like that could work.

Yeah, I look black (which is how I identify myself pretty much anyways). My mother is not black though. Not at all. Sorry bout taking so long to write back. This thing never alerts you of whether or not someone responded to what you wrote. I became a professional writer by simply focusing all my energies on writing. Once I did that, pretty much the ball began rolling on my writing career. I am going to refer you to what Screenwriter William Goldman has said, when it comes to writing and selling scripts. "NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHING IN HOLLYWOOD." I really can't tell you how you should go about making your career happen. All I can say, is that if this is what you want to do, then do it. The fact that you know you want to be a writer at age 20 is better than myself. I thought I was going to strictly be an actor in Hollywood. Then I wrote a screenplay and found I enjoy both. Then I produced a television show in college and found I like that. I also directed a stage play of "A Raisin in the Sun," which lead me to wanting to become a director. We can't learn to love something unless we do it, so if you really want to write for a living, my advice is to pray and just do it as much as you can. I don't write everyday. I write in spurts. 30 pages here, 15 pages there, nothing for weeks. However, I have moved rather quickly in my career, so I can't complain too much. I hope that was helpful.
