Keith David has a new movie coming out called Chain Letter.... alongside Nikki Reed, Brad Dourif, Bai Ling, Betsy Russell (from Saw) Michael Bailey Smith, and clifton Powell.


Mr. David, is clearly the consummate professional in the screen. In fact, I try to mimick my diction and edicate like his in order to gather the same kind attention he does with his audience. Clearly, as he ages, he going to draw many new roles for style of acting.
