Best known for his roles in Barbershop and Seven Pounds, Michael Ealy came to my attention in the STILL NOT OFFICIALLY RENEWED SERIES “ALMOST HUMAN”… sorry for the caps, I’m panicking a little bit. He also had recurring roles on “The Good Wife” and “Californication”
But, like I said, he caught my eye as the “disco-faced” sometimes unstable DRN police robot, Dorian.
Although the plot revolved largely around Karl Urban’s character, John Kennex, Dorian added much needed humor -usually at John’s expense. He also had some deep plotlines himself, compassion for other DRN models, increasing aggravation that he’s the only DRN in the field and can’t relate to MXs, evolving to be a better police officer, a better partner..
But we aren’t here to talk about what a great character Dorian is, or what Michael Ealy added to the role (great delivery, sometimes a musical interlude, acting like a robot that acts like a human)… we’re here to look at Michael Ealy:
And just for good measure, suited up:
Ealy is appearing next in Think Like A Man, Too and then hopefully reprising his role as Dorian! Because I neeed him on my TV screen.
Funfact: He also played a detective in 2012’s Underworld:Awakening
And I don’t know why exactly, but this picture is so cute
