He’s the guy in bed with Rutina Wesley. It’s in the promo, with a lot of quick-cuts, but he’s there.

YES, I’ve seen him tweeting about it, and I love OWN but haven’t tried any of their dramas yet. I would love to see a better trailer, though, with dialogue/scenes to get a sense of the flavor better.

I must say, he was great when they paired him with KM, on GH. I’m looking forward to seeing him, on Queen Sugar.
