Cedric Stewart as Casey

We are very excited to announce Cedric Stewart as Casey. You might have seen Cedric in his notable role in Cinemax’s TV show “Banshee”. Cedric will bring big presence and fight skills to our deadly yet perverted hit man.

Hailing from Washington, DC, Cedric Stewart is one of Hollywood’s  newest emerging actors to explode onto the scene. After attending Florida  A&M University, Cedric decided he wanted to set out on a journey to become  the biggest action star since Will Smith. In addition to professional acting  coaching, Cedric currently trains within the Krav Maga Israeli military defense  system as well as mixed martial arts.

CaseyCedric’s first taste of the small  screen was on HBO’s breakout comedy hit VEEP. Starring and produced by  Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Cedric played a military officer in the second  episode titled “Frozen Yoghurt.” This was just the beginning of a  string of opportunities for this new actor. Cedric currently has a recurring  role on Tyler Perry’s hit sitcom For Better or Worse (Season 2). He plays  Tyrik, opposite the lead character Angela, played by Tasha Smith. Tyrik is the “ex-­-boyfriend of Angela who comes back to reclaim her love. After  premiering on TBS on Friday, July 13, 2012, fans can look forward to seeing  Cedric in many more upcoming episodes as his character tries to rekindle this  past relationship. “For Better or Worse” also stars Michael Jai White and Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Keeping up with the momentum, Cedric was recently added to the  cast of Alan Ball’s new drama series “Banshee”. Banshee is slated to  premiere in January 2013 on HBO/Cinemax and will feature actors such as Ben  Cross (Star Trek), Antony Starr (Wish You Were Here) and Ivana Millicevic  (Casino Royale). Cedric’s character, Damien Sanchez, is an MMA fighter who  enters the town of Banshee, PA and starts a lot of trouble. “I’m  excited to have this opportunity to work on such an amazing project. Playing a  Pro MMA fighter is serious business, and if I look good doing so it’s  because of the Krav Maga and MMA training I do with Otis “Black Belt”  Berry at Brazu Academy in Gaithersburg, MD. He’s one of the best,” says Cedric.
