    Also, if they're casting for looks (which they are) then lil yatchy not being deck is nothing but politics



    Yatchy is basically an alternate universe Deck that gets 'winded' in PE. JB Smoov should be oldhead deck

    Spring Grove actor plays Ghostface Killah's brother with Muscular Dystrophy


    All smiles and laughs — that's usually what fills the room once he's a few seconds into his Kevin Hart impersonation.

    Sam McKoy-Johnson is more than the characters he depicts in person or on his YouTube channel, though. The 20-year-old Spring Grove resident is an actor — a near lifelong pursuit and dream not many people know about.

    Aside from the bubbly, camera-ready personality, McKoy-Johnson is different than most actors. He's been auditioning for more than half of his life, and he has brittle bone disease.

    Brittle bone disease, also known as osteogenesis imperfecta, "is a lifelong genetic disorder that causes your bones to break very easily, usually without any type of injury, as from a fall," according to WebMd.

    Because of this diagnosis, McKoy-Johnson has had many surgeries, and he gets around by an electric chair or wheelchair. For some time, his dreams of acting had to be put on pause. And, even when he returned to auditioning, he faced a lot of rejection.

    The show, set to premiere in September 2019, is a biographical series following the rise of the iconic hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan. McKoy-Johnson auditioned for the role of Darius Coles, Ghostface Killah's younger brother who has muscular dystrophy.

    McKoy-Johnson said he watched countless videos in order to get the mannerism and demeanor accurately, so he could be authentic for those who actually have the disease.

    Unlike most auditions, he wasn't constantly thinking about whether or not he got the role because of an empty void at home. The family dog, Tracy, died shortly after the audition, so much of his energy was spent combating grief.

    But, when he unexpectedly got the good news about the role, he could hardly believe it.

    “It was a complete shock to me because I’ve always been turned down,” he said.

    McKoy-Johnson hopes when people realize that he isn't just depicting someone in a wheelchair, but that it's part of his everyday life, more aspiring actors with disabilities will feel represented. And, maybe producers will be more willing to cast them when they audition.

    "If you need a wheelchair role, put a person with a real wheelchair in the role," McKoy-Johnson said. It's a stance he takes because "everybody has dreams." And, if he let his disability indefinitely delay his dreams, he never would have gotten his breakout supporting role.

    His time on set for the show has wrapped, but he looks forward to going to more auditions and adding to his YouTube channel. He's currently studying communications at HACC.

    McKoy-Johnson has a handful of people he can impersonate to a tee. But, when it comes to the catalyst behind his acting accomplishments, there's a universal lesson that others should emulate.

    "You just gotta keep trying."

    sounds like they're not happy with some of the episodes and have to do reshoots or something like that... or is this something Hulu is known to do? If they were prepared, you'd think they'd drop them all at once.

    A lot of shows are starting to roll out episode by episode, I think it's more of a marketing choice than anything.

    They have done numerous studies on this, and more people prefer the single episode at a time format. Binging is more for the unemployed and people that don't have much of a social life in general.
