Ep. 16: Blair Underwood (Part II) - What Makes Blair, Blair?

Here’s To Life with Tori Reid

Part II:  Tori continues exploring the ancient adage “to thine own self be true” and other pearls of wisdom to live by with one of the greatest spirits ever.  He seems to have mastered life, by mastering himself.  As a father, husband, filmmaker, culture maker and prodigy, as well as an award-winning Hollywood and Broadway actor, he always remains grounded while effortlessly uplifting and inspiring those in his orbit by simply being himself.  We’ve all seen him on LA Law, Sex and the City, Set It Off, and Netflix’s Self Made. Most recently, he was nominated for a 2021 Tony Award for Best Performance By An Actor In A Leading Role in Broadway's "A Soldier's Play," with the award show airing sometime this year.  They talk about his definition of success, mastery of self, philosophy on love, his beloved mentors, and so much more!  Here’s to one of Tori’s favorite spirits, Blair Underwood.  Credits:Host/Producer:  Tori ReidExecutive Producer:  Patrick A.

Beginning a career in the eighties, this culture maker and outlier has managed to do something very rarefied with his life - be a Black man who identifies with his community, honors his family and people, stays true to himself, and be a confident, casual, cool, and kind soul.  We’ve all seen him on LA Law, Sex and the City, Set It Off, and Netflix’s Self Made. Most recently, he was nominated for a 2021 Tony Award for Best Performance By An Actor In A Leading Role in Broadway's "A Soldier's Play," with the award show airing sometime this year. More than a friend, Blair is like family and this incredible conversation is a tribute to his beloved mother, Marilyn. They talk about how he defines himself, his entrée into acting, his love of theatre, his role models, and so much more! Here’s to one of the great ones, Blair Underwood.   Credits:Host/Producer:  Tori ReidExecutive Producer:  Patrick A. HowellProducer:  William BroughtonWriter(s):  Patrick A.
