After starring as Bobby Brown in the hit BET “New Edition” mini-series, Woody McClain came through to The Cruz Show to talk about reprising his King of R&B role in the new BET biopic, The Bobby Brown Story.
McClain originally set out to pursue a career in music and in dance before getting into modeling; the actor says that he was convinced to become an actor after seeing the success of his friend’s viral Vine videos. Striving for greatness and continuing to be inspired, Woody says that his developing friendship with Bobby Brown has changed his views on family.
Bobby is so “family.” He has a lot kids; he has all these relationships. He’s lost Bobby Kristina. He’s lost his ex-wife. And he lost his parents. Like, he’s lost so many people in his life that he was close to him that he cannot talk to, to this day. So, he’s all about trying to be the best man that he can for the ones that he has on this earth. So he made me appreciate the ones that I still have.
Woody also shares a few stories about the relationship Brown had with the late Whitney Houston and even talks who he listens to the most.
