Director Kasi Lemmons has him pull out his comic acting skills for TALK TO ME. In the film, he plays the real-life Washington, DC radio personality Ralph "Petey" Greene. Before there was a Howard Stern getting national attention, there was outrageous, outspoken and hilarious Petey Greene on radio in DC. Petey was so popular with his call-in program that he was booked to be a guest on the TONIGHT Show with Johnny Carson. Petey was a hot mess of an ex-con who took that radio station from the basement to the top floor in ratings.
