Blair Underwood

Dr. Leeds: Now, do you sing to him?

Compared to the movies of today it's kind of hard to say but there was such an innocence to Krush Groove because it was near the birth of rap. Rap had been around in the current popular culture form only seven years at the time.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I haven't done a lot of things in my career that my kids can watch, because they are 8, 6 and 3, and they are pretty young; so given the concepts that the film was about a superhero, it was a black superhero, and it was a father and son type partnership.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I remember talking to Russell Simmons at the time and he said seven years ago they said this wouldn't last and here we are and we're still kicking and here it is now 27 or 30 years later and it's still, not only is it still kicking, it's just the culture of America, popular culture and beyond.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I tell you one of the great things about this movie is, with all that's going on around the world right now, it's just good to go to a movie where you don't have to think too hard, just have a good time, and relax and be crazy.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I tell you what I found is because you're right; I have had a chance to work with great actresses black and white.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I think one of the most difficult challenges in show business is the challenge of longevity and to constantly realize and reveal what's already been there - like doing stage and singing and dancing in New York. I haven't been that far out of my comfort zone in a while.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I think when my character Robert came on the show there was more a sense of - from what I heard and what I felt, thank God we're finally being represented and then it's about how did he play the character, how is an African going to represent that character and is he going to do it right.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I wanted to be Johnny Sokko and I wanted my own giant robot because Johnny Sokko would open up his watch and he would talk to the robot in a nearby building across town and the rooftop would open up and the giant robot, which was like 40 feet high would fly out and save the world.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'd rather say no and have said no and do say no often. I walk away from projects if it doesn't feel right; if it's not the right team of people pulling in together or if the script isn't right. It could be a great idea but the script doesn't work.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'd seen him in a lot of the other movies that he had done, like "Scream," "Bait" and "Three Kings" and I saw his series. I said, "I love this guy. This guy's great." Then I had another idea for a different movie.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'll tell you what 20 years teaches you - is that if one thing doesn't last something else will come down the pipe and to go from that and to do these films now.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'm disappointed because you put your time and energy into a certain character or a project and the product and you just never know.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'm going to Tyler Perry's next movie, Madea's Family Reunion in July and a couple of other things on the back burner. It opened up time for me to do other projects so that's why I'm not upset.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I'm shooting 42.4 percent now. My character starts to date Kenya, a successful beautiful and fine woman of 2005 who puts the mandate out that she doesn't want to cross the color line, she doesn't want to date across the racial line.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Krush Groove didn't cost a lot of money. I think it was $3 million at the time, I don't think Warner Bros. that distributed the movie knew that it would at all last and they would make some money, it did at the time.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Krush Groove was a movie at the time. That was my first break. I just got to New York. I was right out of college and I was happy to have a job.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
My favorite superhero was this old Japanese black and white live action show that very few people remember, but lots of people remember Ultra Man. It was Ultra Man. It was the one that came on before that. It was John Sokko and his giant robot.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Not unlike the show Friends, it just didn't make sense why we're not represented.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Now it's a fully realized production but for the fact that we're holding our scripts in our hand and some of us used them, and some of us didn't and you have to by union rules hold the script. You don't have to use them but you gotta hold them.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Now, my earliest training was in music theater. My major in college was music theater, singing and dancing and acting.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
Purlie's one of the most intense experiences I ever had because it's 10 days of rehearsal, and five performances. We met on a Monday morning which I think was March 21st and by that Friday afternoon we were running through the entire piece.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
She'd rather find a black man if she can and her brother, played by Donald Faison, says you know, I got one for you. So he introduces me to his sister who is Kenya and we date for a while. That's all I say for now.More Blair Underwood [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
