“Alright, alright, alright”

 

Peter just wrapped his role as Judge Thomas Jackson in "White Boy Rick," which stars Academy Award-winning actors Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Jason Leigh as well as Hollywood legends, Bruce Dern and Piper Laurie. In fact, Messrs. Mc Conaughey and Dern and Ms. Laurie appear in the same scene with Peter. The film, which tells the real life story of Richard Wershe, Jr., the youngest informant in F.B.I. history, is set for a January 2018 release.

 

Back by popular demand – “The Bloodless Jungle”

 

Following a successful premiere at Ensemble Theatre in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, last fall and staged readings at the John F.

The drama will also receive a staged reading that month as part of the 2017 National Black Theatre Festival Garland Thompson, Sr. Readers' Theatre of New Works.

LBJ and PLJ

 

Hopefully, you didn't leave the room during the breaks in the action this past NBA playoff season, and you spotted Peter in a national Kia commercial, starring LeBron James. In the televised version of the ad, Peter appears in two shots, one of them by himself. Click here to watch it.

 

“Legacy”

 

Be on the lookout for Peter  in "Legacy," a police drama starring Peter Stormare ("Fargo") and directed by David Armstrong ("Saw" series). This cleverly crafted film, which should soon be released, is bound to keep you in suspense.

 

 

“All Eyes on Emma” at Scares That Care

 

If you love "Twilight Zone," you will certainly enjoy "All Eyes on Emma," a short film in which Peter plays the lead role of Professor McCready, a harried college drama teacher who dares not take his eyes off of a former student. "Emma" screened at the Scares That Care Weekend Film Festival. You can watch it here.

 

Get thee to Redbox

 

"Starve," which recently concluded a lengthy run on the SyFy Channel, is available at Redbox. In this horror/thriller film, Peter plays the role of Norman. Pick up the DVD, and see Peter in a way that you have never... hopefully... seen him before.
