Michael Ealy

Michael Ealy is quickly rising through the ranks as one of Hollywood’s leading young actors. After his breakout performance in Barbershop, he was quickly named as one of People’s “On the Verge” actors in the magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” 2002 issue. A native of Silver Spring, Maryland, Ealy graduated college with a degree in English. Shortly after, he headed to New York where he performed in several stage productions, including the Off-Broadway hits “Joe Fearless” and “Whoa Jack” (for which he earned an Adelco Award nomination). After his theatre stint, Michael nabbed guest-starring roles in NBC’s Law & Order and Showtime’s hit series Soul Food. On the heels of his television appearances, he was cast in the critically-acclaimed film Kissing Jessica Stein. Ealy then segued into the role of G. Mo, the best friend of Jake Hayes (Chris Rock), in Bad Company for director Joel Schumacher. This past year, Ealy completed a dramatic arc on the Emmy-winning series ER and had a supporting role in the blockbuster sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious. He will next be seen in Never Die Alone opposite DMX and David Arquette, and in November opposite Courteney Cox Arquette and James LeGros. Both films will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.Source: ropeofsilicon.com
Will [Smith] is not like preachy. He's more like lead by example. There's two ways to approach Will. You can follow or you can watch and learn, and I just kind of watched him and learned how he dealt with people, how he dealt with life and how he approaches his own work.More Michael Ealy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I would love to direct but I feel like directing is a whole separate craft and so I tend to respect it as a separate craft that I would need to study first. So, right now I'm still trying to do certain things as an actor and until I get bored of that or I feel completely fed by that then I'll move into directing.More Michael Ealy quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I have two dream roles: One would be a biopic of someone I admire and respect and the other one would be some sort of action drama film similar to a 'Bourne Identity.' I just really want to do an intelligent action drama film.More Michael Ealy quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
What is a human-like droid that operates from a place of free will and has been designed to have a soul? That's fascinating stuff that you just can't quite comprehend quickly. It's not like playing a fireman with a wife and kid. You can gauge where that's going to go and what's going to happen, and you can talk to other people who have done it.More Michael Ealy quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I've always thought vampires were interesting because they live forever, they're always well-financed, they dress well, you know what I mean? And they're, like, cool. Usually vampire - you've never seen a broke vampire. Have you?More Michael Ealy quotes [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
