Sterling K Brown
This just may be Sterling's year. The St. Louis native recently starred on FX's The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime. He starred as Christopher Darden and won an Emmy for his role on a limited series. But this may be his year, because he currently stars on NBC's This is Us. And a week ago, I read that he will star in a movie about the first black sniper, and the movie will be helmed by Jay Z. While he has had more television roles, he is also on the big screen as well, so make sure you look to see him more often!
