Actor Reggie Watkins joins host Elias on the podcast. Most recognized from his previous roles in This Is Us, Bosch, and The Rookie, Reggie now portrays the lead role of ‘Sgt. Lawrence Sims’ in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. In this new game, Reggie plays one of only two actors whose likeness and voice are used as a character.
Reggie is originally from San Jose, CA and has always had a passion for acting and athletics. He began his young acting career in theater productions, and eventually went on to play collegiate football as a Wide Receiver, until a torn ACL ended his career at 21-years old. No longer able to pursue football, he moved to LA to fully commit to acting. His first ‘Hollywood’ job was a doorman at the world famous The Comedy Store, where he eventually earned his stripes performing stand up with the likes of Dave Chappelle and Dane Cook. He has since booked numerous TV roles on popular shows such as ABC Family’s “Lincoln Heights” (co-starring opposite the late Chadwick Boseman), Amazon's “Bosch,” NBC's “This Is Us,” and ABC's “The Rookie.” Reggie currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and children.
